Quotes

Virgil Fox: [about the first day of freshman year] I have a chance to be somebody!
Charlie Tuttle: All right, but know this; What happened down there is we became friends. That day we were tied to that stupid Rams statue. This day, this day that you hate so much because you got a little embarrassed. This is my favorite day. Even though I'd still be a nerd, it didn't really matter anymore. Because I had a real friend. And that would always make everything okay. So much for always, I guess.

Cute, but not the best DCOM
26 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie last night with my sisters and was somewhat disappointed with it. The plot itself wasn't too shabby, but I don't think that Disney did as good of a job with it as they could have. The acting was mediocre. Of course, the script may have been mostly at fault moreso than the actors themselves. The script called for the characters to be way overdone, i.e. the nerds were unrealistically nerdy and the jocks were super jerks. And the little sister of Virgil(Jason Dolley) was an absolute brat, where were the parents? I did find this movie to be fairly predictable, especially since the previews leading up to it kind of gave away a good portion of the plot. In fact, previews in general tend to do that. Why, I do not know. Now, I know I've basically bashed the movie, but it wasn't a complete waste of my time. It's a fun movie for kids, to point out a positive. At least that's one thing you can always count on with DCOMs, is that they're decent and family friendly. Despite my criticism, I will probably find myself watching it again when it comes on. So, if you get the chance, check it out for yourself!
