    If you saw "21 Jump Street" back in the '80s, or any of a number of shows featuring cute and cuddly cops, you pretty much know where this flick is heading.

    If you have nothing more stimulating to do on a Friday night, Underclassman could provide the entertainment--not enlightenment--you seek.
  3. Some fairly standard shenanigans ensue, and when the clichéd high school culture clash stuff stops, there's clichéd cop movie stuff going on.
  4. Marcos Siega's direction is well-paced, but writers David T. Wagner and Brent Goldberg haven't brought anything sufficiently fresh or original to a formula plot to allow Underclassman to rise above the level of a mildly diverting video rental.

    Yes, it's really silly, and no, you won't remember a thing about it the second it's over, but adults looking for fast moving, non-violent fun that kids might actually enjoy could do a lot worse.

    Outstanding. I agree with Roy. Perhaps the greatest single flim to grace the silver screen since "The Godfather". The acting is tear-jerking, Outstanding. I agree with Roy. Perhaps the greatest single flim to grace the silver screen since "The Godfather". The acting is tear-jerking, along with an ending for the ages and a twist you'll never believe. Nicholas Cannon portrays his character so well, you soon forget that you're watching cinema and slowly believe you are drifting towards a utopia. If you do not see this movie before you die, you did not live a life worth living. Full Review »

    Underclassman is a rare treat indeed. Where previous reviews have cited each character as a cliche, I would hold them rather delicately in Underclassman is a rare treat indeed. Where previous reviews have cited each character as a cliche, I would hold them rather delicately in cupped hands and observe the tender development of each player as they blossom on screen in what has to be said is one of the finest movies to grace our screens since the thirtees.
