This will be Andrew Daly's second time playing a principal. The first time was as the principal in Modern Family See more »


When Rafe first arrives at the school, the principal stops him for breaking rule 22 - the dress code. However, when Rafe goes into the school [and later into the classrooms] it is obvious that he is not the only student failing to comply with the dress code as many of the other students are also wearing clothes that would violate rule 22. The principal, however, does not press on with the rule to the other students. See more »

I actually thought it was pretty good.
8 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Honestly, It was one of those days when I just wanted to see a movie and anything would do. So I went to see Middle School as it was playing at the time I showed up. I herd of the movie, I did not have low expectations, and did not have any exceptions.

So what I got is a very entertaining movie. This genre of movie has never peaked my interest, so I was real surprised how much I actually liked it. It's pretty funny. A lot of good jokes that I generally enough to appeal to a large variety of people. A few laugh out loud moments, and a lot of small ones that really keep the momentum going.

This is despite the fact that the cast of characters was pretty generic and mediocre, except for one named Georgia, the little sister of the main character Rafe. Should have been more of her on the screen.

Was also surprised at how deep the movie got. It's main plot of letting children be creative individuals did not spark much inside me, but the subplots of dealing with the lost of a family member did hit home, and was delivered perfectly.

Plus, there was some cool animation in it, and I'm a sucker for that.

Overall Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life was worth the ticket. It makes me feel differently about movies like this overall.
