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.

I'll let you in on a little secret, Detweiller. Every adult you've ever known was a kid at sometime in his life. You think we don't remember summer vacation? Riding our bikes down the creek. Catching polliwogs in a jar. Camping out under the stars. Well you're wrong! Sometimes I sit there in my office, looking out at you kids in the playground and I think, "They don't know how good they got it. In a few years, they'll be grownups like me and all those good times will be memories for them, too"....

I used to watch the Recess TV series when it was still on, and when I heard that this movie was being made, I was really looking forward to it. And because I have seen this, I am now going to say what I think about it. I am going to give this movie two thumbs up, this is absolutely and totally funny! I wouldn't call this film a gem of a movie, but I still thought that it was really a great time! What is really in this movie is laughs, I mean that this film is really packed with laughs, so many laughs, that it is required that you laugh out-loud! In my opinion, this is one of the funniest movies that I have seen in quite a few years, not just an animated movie, any movie, it is one of the funniest that I have seen in quite a few years!
You are going to be laughing and laughing yourself silly when you watch this movie, because this movie just keeps the laughs coming! This movie is a just plain hysterical movie that keeps on bringing the laughs! If you are in a bad mood and you want to see a movie that will cheer you up, just watch this movie, it will do the trick! I mean that you are going to be laughing a lot at this movie, you are just plain going to be laughing away!
So throw out the red carpet and prepare yourself to watch the laughs just come right on it, because this film has got a lot of laughs in it! Recess: School's Out is a great movie, there is not one bad thing about this movie, not one.
