Not bad at all for a tv movie!
8 May 2003 | by ironjaycSee all my reviews

"Principal takes a Holiday" showcased the rather unorthodox acting style of Kevin Nealon, where he showed signs of brilliance with his quick wit, physical comedy, and dry humour. Zachary Ty Brian also showed promise, and expanded his already impressive young repertoire with this film. Although I wouldn't consider it a brilliant film by any means, I am going to recommend it for anyone that doesn't mind a few cheesy spots, yet is looking for a heartwarming "feel-good" movie, with a few moments thrown in aswell. At any rate, don't expect to be blown away by this film, or else you may be fairly disappointed.
