Angus is a large, pathetic 14 year old whose thoughts are most often filled with the image of one Melissa Lefevre. Angus is shy and thinks that he has no chance of ever 'getting' her. Being especially uncool, he is incredibly surprised (along with the rest of the school) that he is chosen to dance with her at the Winter Ball. The only one not surprised is the cool-kid who set him up to fail, but Angus' best friend is going to help him win the heart of Melissa by developing a new look for him.

Throughout the film, the band Green Day is referenced many times. Green Day's then producer Rob Cavallo is the film's executive producer. This isn't by coincidence. Cavallo has never produced movies, only albums for Reprise Records. See more

My mother named me after my father, Angus; a cow's name, which didn't help matters much, because I was a big kid. My mother was in labor with me for two days, but it was my father who died during child birth. He had a heart attack waiting for her to deliver, but this wasn't really my problem. In fact, I perceived my family situation as relatively normal, until I began to collect expert opinion around kindergarten.
In the TNT version, there is an extended scene in which Melissa talks to Angus about being his date for the Freshman Winter Ball. This occurs right after Angus discovers he is the Winter Ball King, and he is talking in the hallway with Troy. See more
