Perky, perfect Carolyn and her Alpha Omega Pi sisters plan to win Sorority of the Year by impressing the Greek Council with a killer charity: coaching mentally challenged athletes for the regional Challenged Games. When Carolyn's assigned to coach Pumpkin she's terrified at first, but soon sees in him something she's never seen before: a gentle humanity and honest clarity that touches her soul. To the horror of her friends and Pumpkin's overprotective mother, Carolyn falls in love, becoming an outcast in the process. As Carolyn's "perfect life" falls apart, Pumpkin teaches her that perfect isn't always perfect after all. Written by
The sorority Alpha Omega Pi is actually based on UC Berkeley's Alpha Omicron Pi sorority. The writer Adam Larson Broder lived next door to their house when he went to college there. See more »
Before the disabled kids arrive, Carolyn approaches the coach about the name of the boy she's mentoring - when we first see her back, a clump of her hair is stuck inside of her shirt, but then in the next shot, her hair is out of her shirt. See more »
You are being a big baby, Carolyn. These are people just like you and me. God just chose for them to be different. Your life's been too perfect. Everything can't be that way for everyone.
You have no idea how horrible it was out there today. The way he looked at me.

From being on here I've seemed to notice that people either love the movie or hate it. It seems about equal in the hate to love ratio. So if you want to watch you will be taking a jump and won't know if you like it or not until you've seen it. But for me, I am in the love section, so I would recommend everyone watches it at least once before judging it.
The movie centers around Carolyn (Christina Ricci), the beautiful, popular girl with the boyfriend all the other girls want. Everything is perfect for Carolyn, until her sorority decides to volunteer to help mentally challenged kids prepare for the Challenged Games so that they can win Sorority of the Year. Carolyn's partner is Pumpkin (Hank Harris), and while at first she is confused and scared of him, she soon finds out there is more to him deep down. A love interest in Pumpkin could make her looked down upon by everyone who surrounds her, and possibly ruin her perfect life.
A lot of people seem to like bashing the film, while others simply talk about how much they like it. Pumpkin is one of, if not, my favorite movie, so I would give it a 10/10 because it has everything I like; not because of the acting, filming, directing, etc. I'd recommend you to watch Pumpkin and decide how you feel about it.
I also find people think it is offending (haters) or sweet and touching (lovers). You can probably tell where I fit in. ;)
