Cast overview, first billed only:
Orlando Brown ...


Max Keeble is a nice, quiet teenager, whose idea of 'superhero-requiring' danger is braving Evil Ice Cream Man who blames him for a health complaint from ma Lily. She spent six years on just the right interior and now hears from dad Don Keeble, a wimp whose 'career' in commercial publicity still only got him wearing sly costumes, a promotion requires the family to move to Chicago. Initially Max just hates giving up his high-school friends, a fatso and a music-maniac, but when their former friend Troy McGinty picks on them with his new image as bully realizes leaving means he can't be punished after Friday, and plans an orgy of revenge. Max's targets include the arrogant new principal, Elliot T. Jindraike, who spends the school budget on a new sports stadium to flatter the inspector, Superintendant Bobby 'Crazy Legs' Knebworth, and even plants to tear down the animal shelter. When it's all in motion, dad suddenly announces he has taken Max's first advice and turned down the promotion! Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Max was supposed to be somewhat flustered talking to Jenna after walking into a door while looking at her, but Alex D. Linz flubbed his line and nearly got the giggles (12:02). The filmmakers liked the effect and put that take into the film. See more »


when Max is telling Robe and Megan that he's moving to Chicago, Robe says that they call Chicago the Motor City, because of carjackers. This is incorrect. While it could be true about carjackers stealing cars, however, Chicago is not the Motor City. Detroit is actually the Motor City, and Chicago is the Windy City. See more »

Not a horrible kiddie flick, but...
5 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Max Keeble. Well then. Not horrible, but definitely not the best. The jokes are O.K., the cast isn't too bad (where have I seen all them before?), and the food fight was a hit. However, the little scenes between "Max" and "Jenna" weren't very good at all. Come on, what 9th grader would actually notice a 7th grader. Possible, not likely. It's a movie, though. I guess the directors can have their fun. This movie wasn't totally bad, it just needs a little more...something. 6 out of 10 for Max Keeble.
