Take a look inside General Education
22 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The world of comedy is chock full of different types and styles, but one thing always rings true most of them just don't work all that great. One genre of comedy that usually works for more often than not due to the wider range of audience is the teen comedy. The latest General Education takes on the teen comedy, but does it have anything that will help it stand out or just end up being another in a long line of forced laughs?

General Education follows a young man receives a tennis scholarship to the local University, but has forgot to tell his parents that he didn't graduate. Now he is in a race through the summer to take summer school before his parent's find out the truth while dealing with a new love in his life, and struggling with playing tennis and getting a proper education. This is one of those films that works for what it is going for, but just doesn't offer all that much. The story sports some funny moments, but tries to play the emotional card a bit too often with little effect. Parts of the story are a bit unbelievable, but you let that kind of thing go to let comedies just do their thing, but here there never seems to be any ramifications for any of them. The actors all do a good job with their parts, and seem to mesh well, but nothing overly impressive. This is a pretty simple film with no deep meanings, just a straight forward story those inches along to its pretty predictable ending. There are some pretty stereotypical funny characters that help to take this out of the coming of age story to keep some laughs coming, but just not enough to step it up to something more than average.

This isn't a bad movie, just one of those that fit in with pretty much every other film of its kind. There is nothing new here that hasn't been seen numerous times, but still manages to entertain enough that it's worth checking out.
