a bit of Strangers with Candy
5 August 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Dave Stewie (Christopher Meloni) is a beloved PE teacher. He is still haunted by a very public humiliating defeat as an Olympic gymnast. The President announces a competition for the National Gym Teacher of the Year. Despite his reluctance, his students convinces him to enter. The problem is that new helmet-wearing student Roland Waffle (Nathan Kress) is sure to lose the competition. Stewie falls for the new English teacher only to discover that she's Roland's over-protective mother. There is also the weird principal Abby Hoffman (Amy Sedaris).

Paul Dinello uses his directing skills and brings a bit of the 'Strangers with Candy' sensibility. It's too bad that the mom is played by Chelah Horsdal. She's doing the role very straight. It could have been funnier if Amy Sedaris takes that role. Instead, the principal disappears in the second half. The competition has inherit difficulties. The kids are basically side characters and the competition is about them. Stewie is a side character to the competition. This all makes the second half less than compelling. I wish Dinello go crazy even with the kids. This could have worked better.
