Virgil Fox: [about the first day of freshman year] I have a chance to be somebody!
Charlie Tuttle: All right, but know this; What happened down there is we became friends. That day we were tied to that stupid Rams statue. This day, this day that you hate so much because you got a little embarrassed. This is my favorite day. Even though I'd still be a nerd, it didn't really matter anymore. Because I had a real friend. And that would always make everything okay. So much for always, I guess.

Quite good
9 March 2008 | by LittleNinielSee all my reviews

I have never really been much fan of any Disneys movies at all. Not even the classic cartoons like Bambi, Cinderella, The Jungle Book and so on... And well the recent live action movies on Disney is more like I watch if I don't have better things to do. I can get quite a tricky person to impress with Disney movies - and now I'm talking about the TV-movies, mostly not those who makes it to the big screen (like POTC). Anywho although movies like Wendy Wu and those other movies I have now forgotten the name on... shame on me... I actually enjoyed Minutemen.

It's not going to my favorite list of movies of all time, but of Disney I'd say its on the top without much problem. The acting is mostly good and for once I felt that most of the characters got a little more "fleshed out". Meaning a little more depth. And I have to agree with some comments I have read, its good that the whole meaning of the movie is forced upon you. The friendship is sweet, characters are charming, the little sister is an annoying brat and the lines are funny.

Deffently worth to check out.
