After his principal (Andy Daly) destroys his sketchbook, Rafe (Griffin Gluck) and his best friend Leo (Thomas Barbusca) decide to "destroy his book" and break every rule in the school's Code of Conduct.
Imaginative quiet teenager Rafe Katchadorian is tired of his middle school's obsession with the rules at the expense of any and all creativity. Desperate to shake things up, Rafe and his best friends have come up with a plan: break every single rule in the school and let the students run wild.Written by
James Patterson, the author of the Middle School book series, made a cameo as a manager of the restaurant where they are at for their mom's birthday. See more »
Fire sprinkler systems are pressurized so when Rafe added the dyes he would have had to empty the system first. This would have triggered the fire alarm and dispatched the fire department to investigate. See more »
Just by a show of hands, how many people have a test that starts with the question, "True or false: Principal Dwight has three nipples"?
Well that's a lot of you. Well it's false. Put false. I was born without nipples for your information, and it looks beautiful!

I was expecting a rip-off of "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" films with similar toilet and slapstick humour - I was hoping for it as well, wanting a cringe-worthy film like HSM.
Instead what I found was not a patronizing, garden-variety kids movie. It is surprisingly creative - every time I thought the plot was leaning towards a clichéd "moral of the story" kind of trend (standing up to the bully/becoming popular and ignoring old friend/prank master) the movie was original and refreshing.
GOTTA say i really loved how current this film was (soundtrack is all popular pop songs and well suited to this movie type - Drake was mentioned and the kid "Shon" or "Sean" or whatever CRACKED me up)
Plus, the animated parts were interesting and just childlike enough that the films more serious sub- themes didn't become tedious.The acting was decent and the characters (apart from 'bear') weren't so archetypal that it was hard to digest.
(this movie made me cry ((a LOT)) and thus, 10/10)
