It's the most exciting time of year at Third Street Elementary-- the end of the School Year! But boredom quickly sets in for protagonist TJ Detweiler, as his friends (the other 5 protagonist children) are headed for Summer Camp. One day, while passing by the school on his bike, he notices a green glow coming from the school's auditorium. This is the work of the insidious ex-principal of Third Street, Phillium Benedict and his gang of ninjas and secret service look-alikes! Benedict is planning to get rid of Summer Vacation using his newly-acquired Tractor Beam, which he stole from the US Military Base in an effort to raise US Test Scores, and it's up to the Recess Gang to stop him! In the end, TJ and the gang, with the help from the other students, Principal Prickly, Ms. Finster and the other teachers, destroy the laser, Benedict and his henchmen are arrested, and the kids (TJ's buddies) decide to spend their Summer with TJ.Written by
At one point in the movie, Miss Finster yells out "HEY, Teacher! Leave them kids alone!". That is a line from, and a direct reference to, the 1979 hit "Another Brick In The Wall Part 2" by Pink Floyd and later done by KoRn. See more »
Jerome is accidentally credited as Jordan in the end credits. Jordan didn't have any speaking lines at all. See more »

This cartoon was enjoyed by the whole family. After watching the TV series, my children were amused to see each character involved in a mystery plot on the big screen. We had a lot of good laughs while watching a group of students save the day! Mom especially enjoyed the music and hopes that there will be a sound track available. It's great to see a good movie rated "G" that still entertains both the young and the older audiences. Thumbs up to Disney for some good, family entertainment.
