It's the most exciting time of year at Third Street Elementary-- the end of the School Year! But boredom quickly sets in for protagonist TJ Detweiler, as his friends (the other 5 protagonist children) are headed for Summer Camp. One day, while passing by the school on his bike, he notices a green glow coming from the school's auditorium. This is the work of the insidious ex-principal of Third Street, Phillium Benedict and his gang of ninjas and secret service look-alikes! Benedict is planning to get rid of Summer Vacation using his newly-acquired Tractor Beam, which he stole from the US Military Base in an effort to raise US Test Scores, and it's up to the Recess Gang to stop him! In the end, TJ and the gang, with the help from the other students, Principal Prickly, Ms. Finster and the other teachers, destroy the laser, Benedict and his henchmen are arrested, and the kids (TJ's buddies) decide to spend their Summer with TJ.

if you want a movie that both kids and adults will enjoy,this is the movie for you.it's a cartoon based on the Recess TV show.it has jokes and references both kids and adults will understand,and some that only kids will get,others only adults will get.but the main thing is,it's immensely entertaining.it's very funny at times,with some slapstick and some funny dialogue.it also has interesting characters.plus the story is good.it's easy enough for kids to follow,and not so simple that adults will be disinterested.it also (without hitting anyone over the head)shows the value of working together to solve a problem.it's definitely family friendly with nothing that should be considered offensive,but it does have a bit of rude humour.for me,just out of sheer entertainment value,i give Recess:School's Out a 10/10
