Storyline

Geraldine Ferraro Elementary is on the brink of collapse: the lowest test scores in the state, teachers who are either drunk or having sex on school grounds, and a principal who extorts money from parents. It's up to Tom, the down-on-his-luck vice-principal, to rally the lazy teachers, expose the principal's corruption, and turn the school around before an end of the day board decision that is certain to lead to its closure.

Watch This Movie Ye Shall Not
11 February 2009 | by ichocolatSee all my reviews

Not wanting to sound as if I'm infringing your god given right to your First Amendment, I want to let you know that you may watch this film, but it's better if you find something else to watch (or do) instead. This film is just isn't worth your precious time.

The cast is star studded, but it didn't make the film enjoyable. With poor storyline, poor execution, and poor (or rather, non-existent) acting from the cast, this film is destined to be a disaster.

With figures of around $2m of budget, one would think that the film can be something better, but unfortunately it was not the case. I went through the thread discussion and found out that they'd have to sell heaps of DVDs to recover the cost. And based on how things go, I do not think they can ever break-even.

The only saving grace is Biggs, who have changed his character from being a nutter in his previous films, to somebody who can give substance and impact to the film. No more is he only known as the guy who f**ked a pizza.

As for Eva Longoria, I think she acted better in her previous film (Over Her Dead Body), and I hope she chooses her character carefully before committing herself.

All in all, not the best film around, and not a good film, as the film is aptly called.
