First Part Very Funny, Then It Got Too Silly
30 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There were a lot of laughs in the first part of this episode, because of the exaggerated characters. Here, the egotistical high school hotshot jock is exaggerated. The guy looks like a young Ted Danson and acts like him: totally in love with himself with very funny scenes at home and at school. Lisa Jane Persky is very funny as the school nerd. This stud is bent on becoming the next Homecoming King, figuring he's a "lock" until the principal changes it from a personality contest to a selling-tickets contest.

The big change, though, comes after our Romeo brags that only and "act of God" could prevent him from winning and he didn't believe in God, anyway. Well, a meteorite proves otherwise!

The second half of this got carried away with the slapstick and a predictable ending, which was a shame because this was on its way to becoming a very funny episode.
