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

Very funny but a little uneven
16 September 2006 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at TIFF. Just a quick comment. The movie is definitely worth seeing. Very strong performances by Donal Logue and Alberta Watson. Douglas Smith does well, but seems a little too intense for the subject matter.

The movie has some genuinely hilarious moments, and overall, has a very breezy and clever script. My complaint is that this movie should have been a straight up comedy, and somewhere along the line Michael Mabbot took it a little too seriously.

All in all, funny, entertaining and quite original given the familiar subject mater.
