A great movie, nonetheless
5 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I believe this movie has a nice story line: a teenage girl missing out on the trends of adolescence and wants to be a part of it; and great casting: Hailee Steinfeld, Jason Drucker, Dove Cameron and Thomas Mann to name a few who did a fine job. I expected funny moments, and there were funny moments, actually funnier than I expected, and such as are peculiar to high school.

Megan (Steinfeld) thought she could eventually be the best student at Newton High School as she was at Prescott, but realizes it's not as easy adjusting to it's highs and lows in just a few days or weeks. Jason Drucker, I'd say was my favorite character. He already likes Megan even before she arrived "from Canada", and throughout the movie, kept me giggling anytime he was on screen. He always looked like he wished he could say more than he was given. Cameron was splendid. I could feel her initial dislike for a totally inexperienced newbie at high school; and Thomas Mann played his nerdy role brilliantly. Sophie did good being a second-best, less preferred agent, envious of 83. Jackson played a fatherly (sort-of) role: serious minded, and looking out for his Prescotts. Although I do not perfectly understand Jessica's role, but so far she did well.

It's really a good movie. The cast and crew were excellent.
