Storyline

Intelligent high school senior Duane Balfour has long lived by the principles of his father, Cecil Balfour, to stand up for what he believes in at whatever cost. Duane's fervor is in large part because Cecil died for his principles, he who was viewed as a lunatic. Duane's primary target is his classmate Chad Milton. Although Chad easily gets whatever he wants in life because of who he is, he is largely a symbol for Duane of the entire Milton clan, the richest family in town who have long ruled what happens and who was also the target of Cecil's views. Many of those in Duane's life believe Duane's single-mindedness against Chad is misguided and makes him seen as a lunatic like his father was viewed. Those people include his exasperated mother Bonnie Balfour, his exasperated on again/off again girlfriend Molly Buckley, and his caring teacher, Miss Houston. Based on their advice for him to channel his energies into more productive outlets, Duane decides to run for mayor against five time... Written by Huggo

A great unknown film.
24 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film was fantastic. Very funny and also very much to the style of what life is like these days. I seen this movie at a film festival with a friend and we loved it instantly. The further I got into the movie the more Duane Belfour (The main character) became my hero. The style of the movie is very humorous and at the same time deals with real-life situations. I think that it balances out the comedy and the seriousness quite well. This movie is surprisingly rather original considering the familiar subject matter. This is truly a great movie and I'm disappointed that it has received such a low rating and that it is not very well known. Do not let this "diamond in the rough" go unwatched as it is truly a must see.
