Goofs

Lucas was given back his graded essay, where the teacher refused to change his grade left Lucas cold and dry with the given B+. However, once the teacher begins to investigate - he retreats to his home office using the evidence for probable cause against Lucas that which was literally shown given to the student a scene prior without retrieval of it before leaving the classroom: therefore; mistake being the "dismissed" error of providing teacher with the misplaced direction of the essay to "investigate."

Huge potential, slight let down.
23 January 2018 | by ElliBAMSee all my reviews

I find it infuriating when a character makes weak and unrealistic decisions in order for there to be a plot. This to me is a sign of bad writing. Also the casting of the teacher - I feel - was bad. As excited as I was to see Dylan Sprouse in a new film, I was disappointed that the other lead character in this film (the teacher) seemed to drag it down. The acting is great from Dylan and I hope to see him in more movies soon. Hopefully ones that give him more opportunity to show his talents. I just can't get past the weakness of the teacher and dumbness of some of the supporting characters. It was a tad cheesy, but not one of the worst films I've seen at all.
