Social Misfits (2001)

MOVIE LINE: "Camp Ressurection existed, but only in my mind!"
Not quite utterly pointless, but it was an after-school special with a lot of four-letter words. It was more to the point than School House Rock ("We just need attention!"), but it had its moments. The nifty camera work and added er... effects (I guess one would call them) during the sob stories was worth it.
Overall, it's a flick to see once, and maybe only once just to say you've seen it. It certainly won't be the greatest thing you've ever seen, and it won't rank up there on characterization quite like Malcom X or American History X with the racism, but it's worth a chance. Look for the good in the bad, the little moments that make the movie worth seeing.
I also admit that this movie didn't have the best actors in it and many lines used were way too cliche and stereotypical for use in the year 2000, but I kind of liked the movie. Almost any attempt at a coming of age movie appeals to me. I am not so critical when I watch and I can overlook over-acted lines, mediocre acting and just straight up cheesiness in general.
As always, this movie had a good point. It may not have been displayed as well as it could have been if they could have afforded to hire better actors, but it's the lesson to be learned which was important, and I liked what they had to say. The ending was kind of surprising to me also to be honest.
If you can overlook the fact that this movie is very low budget and kind of cheesy but you can look up to the fact that someone got their work on screen despite not having the money, then I suggest checking out this movie.
I don't know where to start. The non-stop screaming and ranting. The fact that every character is supposed to be different, yet they're all screaming the same S*** "I hate my parents! I hate you!"
What is this film trying to say?
I wanted to see this for one reason. Charlie Talbert from the movie Angus. I think he's a great actor, and he gives a decent performance, given what he's got to work with. Still not even close to his performance in Angus, still it's interesting to see him older.
Elizabeth Huett, the little girl who believe she can fly, was good as well. She stood out among the surrounding S***. But then you have to ask "What is a 9 year old girl doing locked in a cell with a bunch of 18 year old crackheads?"
I bought this for 1.99 at Hollywood Video. Needless to say, it will never enter my VCR again.
