After his parents win the lottery Robin McAllister is sent to the prestigious Locksley Hall. There he experiences how the sons of the school's benafactors, John Prince and his associates Warner and Gibson, are treated like royality. Robin can't join archery club, he gets in trouble when he stands up for himself, and his parents are completely preoccupied with their new horse ranch. But it isn't until one of the school's scholarship students, Tommy, is in a terrible accident that Rob begins to take action against Prince, Warner, Gibson, and their sons. With a little help from his two new friends, Will Scarlett and John Little, and the ranch hand's daughter Marion, he electronically takes money from their company accounts to put towards Tommy's medical bills. However, as the operations become more costly and as a bubbling agent named Nottingham begins to close in on him, Robin questions his own motives. Written by Max Vaughn

Great Movie
8 August 2005 | by pypsqweekSee all my reviews

This movie is an excellent movie. I am rarely a fan of robin movies but this was an impressive movie set in an atmosphere of old money and new money where a kid(Devon Sawa)whose family won the lottery must endure the constant criticism of children who come from old money. Robin fights these kids not in battle but in a competition fought at the end of his arrow. This has got to be one of the best teen movies of my past and one of Devon and Josh's greatest works. If you love the movies like Mighty Ducks, D2 and many other movies that puts a smile on your face when you think about your teen days,then this is definitely a movie you would love to see.
