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 »
During Gil's speech in front of the flag, the Highlanders' number 19 is a black male, but during the game, you can see the skin between his pads and his helmet is white. See more »
This silly comedy features DJ Qualls (who was entertaining in a small role in last year's "Road Trip") as a high school loser who reinvents himself at another school as a popular tough guy. The storyline is pretty stupid and filled with more teen movie cliches than you can shake a stick at but the film is still kinda fun to watch because the filmmakers obviously knew they were making a crappy film and decided to have fun with it. Qualls seems to be having a ball with his role and Eliza Dusku (from "Buffy" and "Bring It On") never seems to take her "Cheerleader babe" stereotypical role seriously, always poking fun at cliches, especially in a pointless but hillarious swimsuit montage. Yea the film is utter crap but it was still fun to watch. GRADE: B-
