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
In an instance of serendipity, the shot of Max crawling through a ventilation duct in the school (39:39-39:50) was the last shot of Alex D. Linz filmed, while the shot of him coming out of the duct (39:51-40:06) was one of the first shots of him filmed. See more »
On Max's first day of school, he gets to school by bus. After school, he walks from the school to the Animal Shelter. After he is doing visiting the animals and trainers at the Animal shelter, we see Max is biking home. How does he have his bike with him if he took the bus to school, then decided to walk home after the animal shelter visit? Where/how did he suddenly get his bike to school and the animal shelter if he took the bus to school? See more »
I took my 12-year-old son at his request to the movie. I would have to say he enjoyed it more than I. It is aimed at juvenile humor and while not bad it has few redeeming qualities. As many such files the kids are very smart and clever while all the adults are totally inept. I will say it did have a good and appropriate ending.
