This is Julianne Moore's movie. She's in almost every scene and has the chops to pull it off. She plays a single, stereotypical high school teacher with no personal life…until one of her former students returns home with a play he's written.This is Julianne Moore's movie. She's in almost every scene and has the chops to pull it off. She plays a single, stereotypical high school teacher with no personal life…until one of her former students returns home with a play he's written. She takes it upon herself to bring it to the stage (with the help of drama teacher, the always funny Nathan Lane). There are other supporting roles that add to the humorous momentum (notably the school administrators). This movie is as light and predictable as a TV episode and some of that could be the director, Craig Zisk, a talented veteran of the medium. Although it's in no way memorable, this is a sweet little trifle with charming comic energy. Expand

Does former student count...!

A perfect role for Julianne Moore. All the other characters were nicely arranged around her's. It was a story based on the high school teacher and her ex-student, joining together for a school project. In the middle part, a wonderful development in the story turns the convincing second half. Some people are not a good listener, they try to finish the sentence before the speech givers. Such small instance, sometime may create a big trouble. Not right away, but it takes time of its own. At some point the truth will meet and all the hell will break out.

A movie with a good narration, but very familiar and predictable. Pleased performances, individually, but casts did not blend well together. Overall, a better movie than what I've heard about it, especially compared to so many overrated recent films. Easily just an above average, should have been better in the many parts, but the quality is there and entertains. In the end, it gives satisfactory for what it is. If you expect something more beautiful or powerful, this isn't the right film for you.

6.5/10

Cute, sweet, great acting. I love both Julianne Moore and Nathan Lane, so this was the perfect flick for me. I thought both of them were truly in their element for English Teacher

I think I really like Julianne Moore here. She's quite funny, moreover her role as an English teacher who loves literature so much and loves being alone as much as I do. Haha. Feels like this movie's talking about people like me with ourI think I really like Julianne Moore here. She's quite funny, moreover her role as an English teacher who loves literature so much and loves being alone as much as I do. Haha. Feels like this movie's talking about people like me with our lonely passion??? Of course without that affair with her former student. Eww!
This is just the best comedy of Julianne Moore, despite its average story. You know, I've never really liked her. But this movie, and Carrie, change my personal opinion about her. Can't wait to watch Still Alice. ^^
