I stumbled across this film on cable and started watching it because I'm a fan of Ryan Reynolds. I kept watching it because it was surprisingly funny, thought-provoking and touching.
The story begins with the death of "Stormin' Norman", the legendary history teacher and grandfather of the main character, Dylan. His father also teaches at the school, and the competition for teacher of the year formerly held by Stormin' Norman gets ugly when the new history teacher, Mr "D" (Reynolds) is an instant hit with the entire school.
It manages to be inspirational without teetering into schmaltzy, well-written and brilliantly cast. School of Life is about realising that life is shorter than you think, and "it takes less than death to kill a man".
