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. All Matt's efforts fall flat on his face, which places his son, Dylan Warner, a grade 8 ... Written by

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 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".
