A very unfunny comedy starring Owen Wilson as a bum who is hired by a trio of high school nerds to protect them from the school bully. Along the way, Wilson teaches them a series of life lessons. It all ends with a battle royal with the bully and his buddies, and as such is similar to several other teen-oriented flicks from an earlier era, like MY BODYGUARD, WEIRD SCIENCE and THREE O'CLOCK HIGH. Wilson is just plain terrible, and the three child actors playing the nerds aren't very convincing. Some violence and sexual situations save it from total ruin, but again this is just a rehash of other teen-oriented movies, everyone of them better than this.
