Storyline

On the last day of school, right on Senior Prank Day in Roosevelt High, things don't look good for meek English teacher Andy Campbell, who feels exceptionally expendable facing a bleak future in front of severe job cuts, just before the year's new school season. But soon, things will go from bad to worse when feeble Campbell will infuriate the scary hot-headed history teacher Ron Strickland, who in turn, he will challenge him in an old-school, no-holds-barred, mano-a-mano throwdown in front of everybody, in the parking lot after school. Inevitably, now that the fight is on, no excuses, no regrets, and certainly no talking sense into Strickland, is going to save Campbell who needs to face the consequences of his actions and pay the heavy price. After all, snitches get stitches. Written by Nick Riganas

take your money and burn it
19 February 2017 | by fpox3See all my reviews

this is by far on the top 3 'worst movies i've ever seen'. i don't usually write a review but i have to because i feel like someone grabbed me money & time.

listen. first of all, i don't put comedy movies in the same 'judging eye' as other genres. sometimes you want to laugh, just enjoy the cinema with friend so don't think I'm comparing it to pulp fiction.

this movie is so bizarre and not funny i think anyone with dignity to the movie making and not "we want money no matter what" should fire anyone connected to this one.

script- no one in the WORLD talks like that, act like that, and those unrealistic moments so cringy i was embarrassed. "plot" - error 404 funny - didn't laugh even one time and all the theater was quiet 99% of the time.
