Dizzy Harrison is an unpopular, high school geek going through a hellish senior year. In an attempt to make a new identity for himself, Dizzy gets himself expelled from his high school, learns the technics of being cool from a prison inmate, and enrolls at a new high school under the alias Gil Harris, to make new friends where he soon gains respect from the jocks and geeks alike. Dizzy then gets noticed by the head cheerleader, Danielle, and helps the school football team gain self-respect to win games. But things unknowingly begin to turn sour when Danielle's disgruntled boyfriend begins investigating into "Gil Harris'" past to uncover any dirt on him. Written by
Students at W. Charles Akins High School were not allowed to be extras in the film despite the fact that the film was partially shot there. This was because extras were required to be at least 18 years old, and at the time Akins' only had 9th and 10th grade students. However, several teachers and staff of Akins High School got to be extras. See more »
As the Highlanders were scoring the touchdown in the state finals, a Highlanders defender #19 was shown shoving a Rocky Creek player #32 in the back while he was already on the ground.

DJ Qualls sure know how to to act strangely and funny.
I saw this movie about 2 weeks ago and i must say that i was impressed by DJ Q's acting as Gil Harris / Gale Harrison! Ross Patterson also was acting like a modern high school thugstah... Anyway, this movie made me laugh like i havent laughed since American Pie 1 & 2! :) This is a kinda classical teenage movie, worth to watch! Lets just hope that they make a New Guy 2 or something.. ;)
