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

Alex D. Linz mentions at 29:19-29:30 "Originally, when I did the screaming or yelling during the swirly scene, it was more like actual yells of pain and anguish, but they wanted to change it because I was sounding like I was actually in pain." See more »


When the Evil Ice Cream Man and Dobbs are fighting at the junkyard, in one angle, Dobbs' tie is thrown over his shoulder by the Evil Ice Cream Man (55:51-56:13) and in the next view, it is back down (56:13-56:14). In the next shot, it is back up over his shoulder again (56:14-56:28). See more »

puerile, predictable, cliche humor
21 October 2001 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

You've seen it all before: the cafeteria food fight, the stupid, egocentric adult authority figures, the boy smitten by the sexy older girl who realizes the girl who really loves him is his not-so-sexy but loyal friend of many years, the animal sanctuary threatened with destruction that the boy must save, the cruel, sadistic older boy who has it in for our hero, etc. etc. This is a predictable, totally unoriginal movie which is composed almost entirely of such cliches and sight gags. Save your money. (by the way, my kids loved it)
