Dizzy Harrison is an unpopular, high school geek going through a hellish senior year. In an attempt to make a new identity for himself, Dizzy gets himself expelled from his high school, learns the technics of being cool from a prison inmate, and enrolls at a new high school under the alias Gil Harris, to make new friends where he soon gains respect from the jocks and geeks alike. Dizzy then gets noticed by the head cheerleader, Danielle, and helps the school football team gain self-respect to win games. But things unknowingly begin to turn sour when Danielle's disgruntled boyfriend begins investigating into "Gil Harris'" past to uncover any dirt on him.Written by
When 'Dizzy/Gil' goes to the County Jail, and is talking to Luther, you can see a black flag symbol on the wall behind him. The Warden is played by former black flag front man, Henry Rollins. See more »
Kirk advises Dizzy that a girl will "powerlevel" him, as though it were a beat-down. "Powerlevel" actually refers to a concept in Kirk's beloved EverQuest wherein a higher-level character protects and/or enhances a lower-level character in order to help the lower-level character "level-up" at a faster rate. It is actually something desirable. Ironically, The New Guy and EverQuest were developed by the same company. See more »

The New Guy, is just one in a long line of feel good movies, and this one has something for everyone, its funny, romantic, and has poetic justice, what more could you ask for?. Excellent acting from Eliza Dushku and DJ Qualls, is there anything his character cannot do to make himself look cool, Dushku is the girlfriend you want the school bully to have, she stands up to him, and puts him down at every opportunity. Overall its a super movie, if you want a laugh and to to watch something that'll make you smile, then watch this one. And dont forget to keep watching at the end, the out takes are worth watching.
