After falling victim to a humiliating prank by the high school queen bee, Jodi (Victoria Justice) and her best friend Mindy (Eden Sher) plot their revenge by uniting all of the school's outcasts to overthrow the cruel reign of the popular clique once and for all. But in a tale of "be careful what you wish for," a taste of power gets the best of all of them, nearly ruining Jodi and Mindy's friendship and threatening to sabotage Jodi's budding romance with Dave (Avan Jogia). A relatable journey about finding where you belong in a world where you're hastily defined by your peers, THE OUTCASTS turns the teenage experience upside-down with humor, wit, empathy, and a lot of fun.

Did You Know?


Victoria Justice and Avan Jogia are actually good friends behind the scenes. They became friends while filming the Nickelodeon TV movie "Spectacular" and have remained close ever since. See more »


Sugar: You think you skinny anaemic fanboys have a monopoly on the one fictional genre where women and people of colour get to exist outside of backward social norms of traditional confinement, not to mention a genre that is largely premised on the idea that is the inevitable outcome of the current systems of patriarchal excess? Idiot!

Great for nieces in junior high
15 April 2017 | by jm-255See all my reviews

Played this for my two nieces, ages 11 and 12, and they loved it. I could hear them laughing as I was cooking in the kitchen. I watched most of it from afar and it looked good.

My younger niece already asked to watch it again, so I figured I'd post this review for anyone else who might have girls in junior high. It seems perfect for them.
