Storyline

Life in the trenches of that most honorable and frustrating profession...teaching. It's the start of a memorable new year at Harrison High. The self-conscious Mr. Stroope is convinced that his time has come - this year he will be furnished with the golden title of "Teacher of the Year," if only his smarter students would stop using words that he can't understand. Peek into Mr. Lowrey's History class and you'll see that he's struggling to even call himself a teacher. Woefully inept due to a complete lack of experience and social skills, he earnestly stutters his way through class. The only interaction his students offer him is when they steal his chalk. Men aren't much interested in the spunky and officious Coach Webb, but "not all P.E. teachers are gay" and she pines for some romantic company. Her once best friend, the newly appointed assistant principal, Mrs. Reddell, doesn't seem to have time for her either, as her new power post is all-consuming; battling egos, enduring teacher ...

Ha Ha Only Serious
22 October 2006 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

Delightful mockumentary about new teachers. Well cast, well acted, and a brilliant structure that not only plays for laughs, but more than little 'only serious' edge to it. Basically if you were ever a student or a teacher, or a parent of a student, you'll get something out of this film. There's not much more I can say about it besides go see it when it hopefully releases in March. Oh, and it's so good, there's talk about it becoming a series. Think thats premature? Wait til you see the most refreshing sendup on spelling bees ever imagined. Then think about the fact that the extras playing students and teachers are just that. It's fresh and kinetic, and doesn't take itself too seriously.
