Storyline

Dylan Shoenfield is the pink princess of the upscale Woodlands Academy. She has the coolest boyfriend, the most popular friends, and a brand-new it bag that everyone covets, but when she accidentally tosses her Serge Sanchez bag into a fountain, this princess comes face-to-face with her own personal frog - self-professed film geek Josh Rosen. In return for rescuing Dylan's bag, Josh convinces Dylan to let him film her for his documentary on high school popularity. Reluctantly, Dylan lets F-list Josh into her A-list world, and is shocked to realize that sometimes nerds can be pretty cool. But when Dylan's so-called prince charming of a boyfriend dumps her flat, her life and her social status comes to a crashing halt. Can Dylan win the Woodlands Academy Spring Formal Blossom Queen crown? Can Josh win the Woodlands Academy 5th Annual Film Festival? Can Dylan, with Josh's help, pull the pieces together to create her own happily-ever-after? Written by rooney galian

To Be Blossom Queen
13 November 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Geek Charming is an innocuous but all together impossible tale of the nerd who woos the diva with the technique of making a film documentary about her. Matt Prokop is the film geek and Sarah Hyland is the diva whose biggest ambition in life is to be Blossom Queen of her high school.

Even over 40 years ago I well remember about how high school was so regimented into a caste system of cliques. A lot of kids are going to see this teen comedy from Disney Studios and start thinking the barriers are not so impossible. Prokop has his set with other film buffs of which I could have been one and hits on the idea of making a documentary that will gain him a scholarship to film school. He decides to do a documentary exploring the secret of popularity with Hyland as the subject. She's thinking this will help her in her campaign to be Blossom Queens which is what they must call Homecoming Queen in her high school. The crowning achievement of her life? She reminds me so much of the equally vapid Mila Kunis in That Seventies Show who said that nothing would deter her from her ambition to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader.

And as these films go both start to change each other just by being in close association. It's the Disney Studios so their product is usually limited in the directions they go.

Propkop and Hyland are decent enough leads and attractive. But nothing terribly out of the ordinary here.
