The story follows two best friends Mark and Russell on a crazy adventure through town after Ashley, the most popular girl in school, asks Mark for a ride to an exclusive pool party. Mark's excitement comes to a quick halt when he remembers one minor detail - he still hasn't passed his driver's test after numerous failed attempts. With pressure mounting, Mark and Russell track down Glenn, a DMV instructor known for his easy testing, but on the day Mark attempts the test, Glenn learns that his wife is leaving him and is too distraught to complete the driving test. Left with no other way to get his driver's license, Mark and his trusty sidekick, Russell, embark on a cross-town adventure with Glenn to help him win his wife back. Written by Anonymous

there are worst things in the world
21 January 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Nerdy Mark fails the driving test for the fifth time and is forced to take the bus with his dorky best friend Russell. He is overjoyed when beautiful Ashley asks him to drive her to a party. Now he has to pass the driving test quickly and easy DMV instructor Glenn seems to be the ticket. It's the start of a series of outrageous adventures as they try to fix Glenn's marriage and get to the party.

I love the The Goldbergs so let's check this Disney kids movie for Sean Giambrone's sake. Firstly, I notice a glaring similarity between Mark and Russell leaving their height difference aside. For a good comedy duo, they need to be much more different. Including Glenn, everybody seems to be wacky, weak, and loud. It's a lot of the same thing from these characters. A change in speed is often effective like a baseball pitcher. That's why the tougher Angela character is a breath of fresh air. It's also cute that she likes Russell. I'm not familiar with DisneyXD but I get a feeling that it's all wacky, loud kids doing a lot of overacting. Honestly, it's very tiring. I do like the actors and the characters are more cute than annoying. There are worst things in the world.
