Identical twins, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
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
(at around 1h 1 min) The fish eyed effect when Max realizes his family is not moving to Chicago after all, was achieved by doing a close-up using a wide-angle lens, while the swimming distortion effect in shots of his parents was achieved using a "mesmerizer" lens that could be dialed around while in use.

I pound on kids. That's what I do, that's what I do! You know what they call me up there?
[the school nurse nods her head no]
[Troy then sobs]
Troy, easy. Now, I'd like to take you through a childhood regression process. It may bring up some unpleasant memories... but I think you'll find it helpful in the end. All righty?
[reveals Troy the MacGoogles doll]
Now, give Mr. MacGoogles a hug.
Aah! Aah! He's gonna eat me!
[then sobs again]
We've got some work ...

As the last day of my 2013 summer vacation, my program was to watch "Todo sobre mi madre" as Penelope is the actress of my heart. But after a deep inspection of my parental DVDs, I realize that they didn't have it. Sad as never, I started to zap the TV and this kid movie picked my interest: it was funny, speedy and above all, the directing was very inventive and talented. In short, it was a bit like one of my favorite show, "Parker lewis" but not set in high school but in elementary school instead! As I missed the beginning, I waited less than one hour (reading the Jedi making-of paperback) and I caught it for good at the Disney+1 channel.
It was indeed a great movie: the kids were very good as well as the adult cast. It will be interesting to discover what career they will finally built! Maybe the characters are unidimensional but at least, they pick the right people for the job: the director is ridiculous, Amber is a sexy science teacher, and the terror of teens in the Shameless show is indeed the terror of the playground!
The story was interesting for me as I have always liked the ones that depict school like a fantastic universe where everything can happen and where we can share experience with wonderful supportive friends. Like the above mentioned Parker Lewis, it's exactly the thing here and around this, there is really a plot: everything can explode as the boy leaves town but he must finally be responsible after all! In fact, the movie deals wisely with a lot of values: friendship, parenthood, school finances. But it's not heavy as things are always depicted with fun.
I think that it's my 1st Tim Hill's movie but this guy should be given his chance as he really transcends his material: from flat words, his camera found always the ultimate angle to tell them. Thus, the movie is dynamic, inventive, has fantastic visual and it was the perfect backup for my Penelope longing.
