Geat movie about losers and in the in crowd and great acting by Pete Kowanko.
12 June 2004 | by RNESee all my reviews

Maude is a loser girl who is about to meet the in crowd at her high school. The in crowd wants to experiment in making friends with the school's losers and it just so happens they run into Maude.

This is a great movie if you like teenage dramas. But, the real reason to see this film is to check out Peter Kowanko who plays the cowboy jock Dolph. Peter steels the show with his acting and his awesome baby face. Lets face it most of us wanted the big jock in school and Peter plays the role so well.Pete interacts with the loser girl so well and you can't help but want to kiss big Dolph for being so sweet. Check out this movie and see Pete, the all American guy in action.
