David Leary was bullied by Rosco when he was in elementary school. But he got even on the day his parents moved out of town. Now twenty years later, David, who is a successful writer, is invited back to his home town to teach. Everything is great until Rosco, who is still in town, recognizes him. Now suddenly someone is playing mean practical jokes on him. Isn't David a little too old to be running to the Principal saying "Rosco's picking on me." ?Written by

I saw this movie and there was no reality to what a bully is really like or how his target is affected (except when it was affecting Davie with his job and life, check out the workplace, it happens) until the end when Davie says "I still have nightmares from 4th grade because of what you had done to me" to Roscoe, his childhood bully. Adult bullies do not go the route of "the polar bear is dead" chant. They play divide and conquer among colleagues and not "flicking peas" in a lunchroom. Much more sophisticated (and psychopathic) as adults. However, I also felt that this was made as a take on bullying or as a satire more or less? If so, not a good idea. Bullies grow up to be your rapists, spousal abusers and child abusers. There is no humor in that at all. Frankly, it is time to call a spade a spade and see that bullying is not silly kids stuff like we were suppose to think by this movie. It is a serious problem with serious consequences and not something I take lightly.
