History teacher "Stormin'" Norman Warner is held with great reverence at Fallbrook Middle School, he voted Teacher of the Year by its student body forty-three years in a row. His son, current Biology teacher Matt Warner, does not hold that same reverence by the students, who view him as a stick in the mud. After Norman's passing, Matt, who received a few words of wisdom from his father before he died and who has always felt in his father's shadow, nonetheless feels the burden of keeping the Warner winning streak of Teacher of the Year alive. His task is made all the more difficult of the hiring of Michael D'Angelo, a Fallbrook alumnus, as its new History teacher. Quickly given the catchy moniker "Mr. D" by all at the school, Michael captures the imagination not only of the students but of all the other teachers, that is except Matt, who uses all his energies to discredit Mr. D and his methods.

Mr. D is using a microwave to heat up a Moon Pie. In one shot, his left hand is holding the microwave door open; then we switch to another shot where the door is closed and he presses the following buttons: 1, 5, START. The next shot is a continuation of the first, where we see him holding the microwave door open. Also, depending on which shot you want to use for when the microwave actually started, it runs for either 7 or 9 seconds, not 15. See more »
i thought the film was brilliant some bits were sad and some funny. its fun to watch and i enjoyed it. Ryan Reynolds looks great in it and thats 1 reason why i watched the film but unfortunately he is engaged to Alanis Morissette DAMN IT never mind i can still like him. the film is moving and I'm sure most of you who have seen it would agree family entertainment be sure to watch it. if you have seen the film I'm sure you would agree its spectacular and Ryan Reynolds is fantastic in it as the cool teacher, and he looks absolutely gorgeous. the film is about two teachers who are competing for teacher of the year award, its a mixed film from comedy to sad i enjoyed it very much i have only seen it twice but i might buy the DVD if it comes out on DVD that is. people make sure you watch it will have a great effect on you. and it might effect on what you do. so how much time do you have not a lot
