It was clever. You know how teen movies especially ones involving kids competing against each other in school related events tend to be highly predictable? Well, this movie had real unpredictable moments I mean real ones. Like when Will is upstage and everyone is chanting his name (this is not a spoiler, don't worry) I didn't know what was going to happen until it happened. I know this might sound kind of lame, it's only a detail but the fact that they managed to surprise me with it was really something.
And, the mirror scene. How many people wish they had thought of this for show and tell? And the kissing scene! HAHAHAHAHAHA. With the hat and the hair . God that was funny. I'm still laughing just thinking about it! The only reason I'm giving it a 9 is because one small detail bothered me. How in the world did they come up with the song at the end? It was a little far-fetched which kind of clashed with the rest of the movie because the rest made sense if you've seen the movie, you'll know what I mean.
And I cried! Twice! One time because I was touched and the other time because I was sad...
So, this is a FAMILY movie that is CLEVER, FUNNY, SAD, TOUCHING. I highly recommend this if you're hanging out with your younger sibling or if you are babysitting a 12 year old (not younger than 12 though because they might not get all the jokes...) They will LOVE it and so will you!
