Run of the mill high school fantasy flick
20 December 2020 | by wrxsti54See all my reviews

The movie revolves around newcomer California skater/surfer high school senior Kyle (Ross Lynch) at a hockey mad school in Connecticut who stumbles on a magic App from a bizarre mall phone repair guy that grants Kyle's every wish which of course is to be good at things that make him popular. The plot from there is utterly predictable.

This movie suffers from poor plot pace, stereotypical characters (bullied nerd, obnoxious jock, cute wooable girl, jealous gay performer) and an equally predictable story line. Ross Lynch wrote the book on blond surfer dude so his lead performance is easy. It does get tiresome seeing movies about high school played by twenty something actors. The movie was plastic enough already without that added layer of inauthenticity.
