A strange sort of film. A smart, left-of-centre high school story like Detention, which, although not without it's own faults, was actually entertaining throughout.

A smart, left-of-centre high school story like Detention, which, although not without it's own faults, was actually entertaining throughout. Instead, here we get earnestness, moralising and a quite underwhelming story with a surprisingly generous handful of cruel twists. Allison Janney is wonderful in quite a meaty role, and Rebel Wilson and Angela Kinsey add much needed spark and humour. I find it odd however that Chris Colfer would write himself a mostly unlikable role; pompous, arrogant, and dismissive of what he could learn from others. Is he supposed to be the hero? By the end, all I could muster was, "really?". Expand

You can't help but like Chris Colfer as Carson Phillips. Great supporting cast. Kind of a dark theme, but it works. Very enjoyable. Saw it with my teenage daughter and she was nuts about the movie, she can't wait to get the DVD.

I loved this movie. Great acting, great screenplay. This is Chris' first screenplay, and the wittiness and flow of the movie really surprised me. Everything was well thought out and entertaining. He is a pro already. I can't wait to see whatI loved this movie. Great acting, great screenplay. This is Chris' first screenplay, and the wittiness and flow of the movie really surprised me. Everything was well thought out and entertaining. He is a pro already. I can't wait to see what he has in store for the years to come! Also, having Rebel Wilson in any movie makes it worth watching!
