One of the funniest Disney movies ever made..., 29 June 2003
Author: Andrew DiMonte (NoArrow) from My House, Canada

...I had never thought Disney could redeem themselves after movies like "Tarzan" and "Mulan" until I seen this classic. Yes, I just said that Recess: School's Out is a classic. I loved this movie, and I'm a teen who hates most cartoons.

There is nothing about this movie that isn't funny, from Robert Goulet making a 'cameo' as character Mikey's singing voice to all the overdone teen cliches in character T.J.'s older sister Becky (Mellissa Joan Hart). This movie never even tries to be overly-dramatic as most other Disney movies, it's just straight, top of the line fun.

Without a doubt the greatest thing going for this movie is James Woods as the Dr. Evil type villain, pulling all the cliches of the James Bond bad guys. That's the great thing about Recess, it basically uses cliches, but makes fun of them too.

Hilarious movie, 8/10.
