Jodi (Ava Michelle) has always been the tallest girl in school - and she's always been uncomfortable with it. After slouching her way through life for 16 years and being made fun of by classmates, Jodi meets Stig (Luke Eisner), a seemingly perfect Swedish foreign exchange student who's even taller than she is. Jodi's new crush turns her world upside down and throws her into a surprising love triangle, but with the help of her two best friends (Griffin Gluck, Anjelika Washington) as well as her beauty queen sister Harper (Sabrina Carpenter), Jodi comes to realize that she's far more than her insecurities about her appearance have led her to believe.

Did You Know?


The book Jodi is reading in her room is The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Coincidentally, this movie came out around the same time The Goldfinch movie came out. See more »


The displayed formula (diagram) on the chalkboard for menthol is incorrect. Although Stig is right when he writes down a molecular formula of C10H20O for menthol, the diagram shows one too many carbon (C) atoms and 3 too few hydrogen (H) atoms, giving a molecular formula of C11H17O. This means both that the teacher wrote down the wrong structure and that Stig read it incorrectly, too. See more »


Jack Dunkleman: [competitively] So, let's say that you and Stig date, okay? You, uh, fall in love, stick together through college, down the line you get married, have a baby. And the combined strength of your tall gene and his tall gene creates a zygote in your belly the size of an above-average sized watermelon. Okay? So that would mean that that puppy's coming out Cesarean; through the side door. Do you really wanna go through the rest your life with a big old scar on that beautiful torso of yours. 'Cause, ...

I liked it and then I didn't and then I liked it and then I didn't
13 September 2019 | by Short_and_to_the_pointSee all my reviews

I mean, it wasn't bad... but I feel like they didn't quite catch Jodi's personality. It was mostly people telling us how amazing she is, but all we see is her being down or whinging about something. I would have liked to see the more caring and "fun" side. It was stated that she was "fun" a few times, but where was that?? It was very choppy in a few bits. Like there were scenes missing that could have added to the experience. There was one part, though, that made me a bit mad, and that was the caesarean part. I haven't had one myself, but that was incredibly offensive to millions of women. It's as though they were made to feel ugly for bringing life into this world and something that usually comes from an emergency. Not cool guys. The rest of the movie was average. In saying that, it was a nice, easy watch when you want to just turn off the brain and watch a Netflix teen romcom.
