Very funny movie!, 3 May 2005
8/10

My 12 year old son and I attended this movie months ago at a test screening in New York. I'm always afraid to go to the movies with him, because more often than not the movies that are sold as "family entertainment" are actually really raunchy. But I must say, this was a treat. My son and I absolutely adored this movie together!!! It was funny and surprising and has a really clever twist ending that caught me completely by surprise. My son was excited by the ideas the movie raised, and has even gone on the Internet to research them further.

I was most surprised by how good the actor who played Puddy was from "Seinfeld." I have never seen him in anything other than "Seinfeld," but he was wonderful! And he's handsome enough to be a movie star. I don't know why he isn't.

The teacher in the movie is very good as well. She's a smart woman. She's not Pars Hilton. She could be a role model for young girls, which is a nice change. And the chubby police officer is very cute and very funny! My son still quotes lines from him.

I suppose since this is a review, I should say what I didn't like, too. There are some police men in the movie that I didn't care for. And I didn't understand what the woman who ate dead birds was doing (don't ask!). But these scenes are really short and the rest of the movie was top notch!

I hope it comes out soon, because my son would love to see it again, but I have not seen a single ad or poster. So who knows? But it is very good! See it if you can!
