Taken aback by his mother's wedding announcement, a young man returns home in an effort to stop her from marrying his old high school gym teacher, a man who made high school hell for generations of students.
Billy Bob Thornton,
Seann William Scott,
At a Catholic high school, the popular girl teams up with a sophomore newspaper reporter to investigate a case of stolen SAT exams. Once the duo target their suspects, a larger conspiracy is unearthed.
An author who returns to his hometown to deliver a commencement address to a class of graduating high school students has to deal with his feelings for an old flame as well as the advances of a student who has the hots for him.
Texan Charles Farmer left the Air Force as a young man to save the family ranch when his dad died. Like most American ranchers, he owes his bank. Unlike most, he's an astrophysicist with a rocket in his barn - one he's built and wants to take into space. It's his dream. The FBI puts him under surveillance when he tries to buy rocket fuel; the FAA stalls him when he files a flight plan - it's post-9/11, after all. His wife is angry when she finds out their bank is initiating foreclosure. Charlie fears failure and decides, precipitously, to launch. Are twenty-first century American dreams just a sign of insanity? Are those who believe in dreamers only fools? Written by

boring, what else i can say .. well maybe boring again? the plot is intriguing but.. that's it .. a lot off bla bla about a guy that want to fly a rocket. a little drama here, a little drama there. i did like the fact that US officials are made bigots, @%#^ heads and so on, because sometimes they are. There always is a bigger plan that sweep under the carpet the little guy and his dreams. Bruce Dern was like a paralytic or something.. literally he can fall apart in some scenes. Thorthon was OK, but i think that he can fit in the jack ass role much easier and can play a lot better. Damn boring.. i almost fall to sleep during this movie..
