Marcy and Summer have to come up with dates for the Annual Spring Fling dance. Their only option is to take two geeks and face the teasing from the popular girls. Everything changes when they are given a magic ring that grants wishes. In a Cinderella-like twist, two pet rats are transformed into hunks for their dates to the dance. The only problem is the hunks still behave like RATS... and always at the most embarrassing times!

Did You Know?


Marci Kornbalm: All rats want to do is eat, run on the treadmill... and mate.
Summer Weingarten: What?
Marci Kornbalm: Which... which, when you get down to it, Summer, doesn't make them much different than most guys. Most high school guys, anyway. So, we keep feeding them and keep them busy and that will keep their mind off the mating aspect of the situation.
[Spike & Scooter start sniffing the girls]
Marci Kornbalm: Um, you better go get some nachos - a double order - extra cheese.

fun kids movie adults can enjoy
30 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is a very funny and sweet movie that is clever enough for both kids and adults to enjoy. I find it very unfair that the first comment people see is a very negative one, especially since the vast majority of the comments are highly favorable. There aren't that many movies in this category for kids around 10-12 and even fewer that are as good as this one which makes it even more unfair that this movie is being trashed by the one negative comment so prominently displayed. While this is a great movie website, there should be some way to correct this travesty. The movie is really good. OK. It was not an Oscar winner but comedies rarely are and this movie has enough laughs and clever twists to otherwise corny situations to make it a movie you will want to watch more than once.
