A teenage special ops agent coveting a "normal" adolescence fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school. She quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of high school is more challenging than international espionage.
Megan Walsh has been training to be an international assassin for Hardman. However, while she is on a mission, she notices how other teenagers her age seem to be having fun and enjoying their lives. Desiring a normal life, she bails out of a mission and enrolls in a student exchange program, while in the process of being adopted by a foster family. She soon becomes a part of the high school and is subjected to the pressures and life of being in its environment.Written by
During the outdoor lunch scene when Roger is telling Megan to go to the party, Gooch can be seen hip thrusting in the background. Through several quick camera changes, his leg changes from on, to off the bench, and then back to on. See more »
I never knew my parents. The only thing I ever knew was Prescott. It was a top-secret government-run school that turned little girls into killing machines.
Not bad. Run it again.

"Sure I'm no Vera Farmiga but I believe I have talent."
I'm not sure why this one is being slammed so much. I thought it was silly, fun entertainment. Totally harmless fluff but what's wrong with that? Hailee Steinfeld leads a great cast, none of whom disappoint. Nice to see Sophie Turner in a role light years away from Game of Thrones. I thought Jessica Alba and Sam Jackson were both good. Alba seems to be having the time of her life. Rachael Harris and Rob Huebel are both hilarious. Jason Ian Drucker is a little scene stealer. He's great every time he's on screen. I loved his part in the final battle. It's somewhat reminiscent of the Spy Kids movies but less annoying and not as much cartoonery. Yes it's by-the-numbers in most respects but it's just trying to entertain, not reinvent cinema as we know it. Most of the complaints I see are from people saying the movie "could have been more/better." Well you just described 99% of movies. There's always room for improvement. Why don't we just judge it by what it is not what we wish it was? I think it's a fun lightweight teenage action comedy that has appeal for young and old alike. And that's enough for me.
