User Reviews

weak lead in broad teen comedy
30 January 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Being always on the move, Kevin Matthews is the new kid in Emerson High. He flirts with Amanda who happens to be arrogant jock Wayne's girlfriend. He's already in trouble on his first day getting into a fight with Wayne's idiot friend Cecil. He gets a fast food job working beside Lucy Kaminsky (Kelli Williams). He joins Lucy who is the VP of the Science Club. They find Barney Springboro's secret prune juice hidden behind the wall. Wayne and Cecil force Kevin to drink the juice and soon he discovers his new telekinetic power.

Todd Eric Andrews is not good enough to be the lead although Scott Baio in the original is not a high target to hit. His character is too brash too soon. He should try to be nice even with Wayne at the beginning. It's fun to see familiar faces like Kelli Williams and Linda Blair. The story is fine for its genre. However, this movie is not much more than a poor teenage boy fantasy with a bit of female nudity. It needs to be funnier with good comedic talents.
