Product Description

Kid-power comedy based on actual events about school kids who foil the higher political aspirations of their puritanical principal. Principal Weller (Julie Bowen) runs a tight, religious-right ship at Booker High; she's known to have banned the passing out of condoms on national safe sex day, suspended two gay kids for a stolen kiss, and generally hounded any manner of freedom at her school. However, she has plans to move up the ladder to a higher position on the district school board and the kids find out. They plot to scupper her highbrow plans by exposing her for the heartless harridan she truly is. They find a sympathetic ear in one of their teachers, Mr. Drucker (Malik Yoba) - an advocate of free speech and human rights who is promptly fired for his alliance with them. He takes up arms, makes a documentary about the case and it looks like the bloom is finally coming off The Weller's rose .

5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY, SEXY, JUST BRILLIANT 9 Feb 2007
By Chupong
Format:DVD
Nicole Richie looks stunning in this teen comedy, it has everything you would like to see in a teen movie and it even poses some serious questions.

The story is about a group of class mates who act out revenge on thier headmaster.

A great cast and a simply great film, I cannot believe this was never at the cinema!

Highly reccomended

4.0 out of 5 stars Good movie but..... 22 Oct 2008

Format:DVD
I bought this movie cause I saw it had Nicole Richie in it but it turns out that her role was quite pointless, however its a really good movie and I would reccomend it to fans of teen comedy however not to fans of Nicole Richie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A most entertaining movie 19 Mar 2006
By John Hutchinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD on the strength of Gregory Smith being in it, and I have to say that Gregory does not disappoint.Neither does the rest of the film.The movie is most enjoyable, and in some places, rather reminiscent of that glorious TV series from the early 1990's Parker Lewis Can't Lose, except with rather more serious content and intention.

Amd what can I say about Gregory Smith that has not been said before?This young man is a most wonderful and natural performer, and I certainly look forward to many years of seeing his work in the movies and on TV.

Excellent effort all round

4.0 out of 5 stars Stick With It 11 Mar 2006
By A. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I almost turned this off during the first five minutes, as the jokes were obvious and painfully unfunny, the budget was glaringly low, and the dialogue didn't ring true. I was thinking about winging an email to Roger Ebert, who liked it, asking him what was he thinking.

But for some reason I stuck with it, and I ended up liking it a LOT. True, a lot of the jokes throughout the rest of the movie were still bad, but I also laughed out loud more than a few times. Moreover, the movie's simply a lot of fun, with smart politics--objectionable only to Neanderthals--and a cast full of recognizable faces. Though I had to go to IMDB to figure out that the Oriental actress, Emy Coligado, who is obviously too old for this high school kid role, plays Piama on "Malcolm in the Middle."

Be sure to check out the outtakes on the DVD. On many DVDs these would consist of a lot of lame, unfunny mugging for the camera, but many of the outtakes on here are actually pretty good. Julie Bowen is particularly funny, singing that cameltoe song, and explaining why she "hates" Angelina Jolie: "She has a big chest, big lips, skinny legs, and she's philanthropic. I'm a selfish, flat-chested, big-assed bitch."

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing 15 April 2006
By J. Kessler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I bought this movie not really knowing what it was about. I watched it and I was amazed. It's based on a few true stories of kids in schools who were suspended and that really made it stand out. The acting was incredible and the story was just plain amazing. Seeing as I'm in high school, I could really see where the teens were getting their ideas from, but I'm not pulling those stunts! Really, this movie was awesome and I really recomend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephanie Sherrin Stars 31 Aug 2010
By BIO TREK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw part of this on TV and then never heard from it again, so I bought the DVD so I can see the complete movie. I was particularly intrigued by the cute red-haired star who came from nowhere and then disappeared into obscurity after this movie was made. Her name is Stephanie Sherrin. The movie is your less-than-average High School comedy movie and gets a 2-star rating. But I really liked watching that cute red-haired girl so I added two stars to give it a 4-star rating. I'm surprised that Caitlin Wachs didn't shine in this movie. Caitlin has one of the most beautiful faces I've ever seen. But in this movie she just looked like another pretty cheerleader. It seems in this case that it's the girl with the cuter personality that shined.

5.0 out of 5 stars You know all those "brainless high school comedies"? Here's what one would look like if it had brains." 18 Jan 2010
By Mark Twain 58675 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I can't say it better than Rodger Ebert: "Once in a blue moon a movie escapes the shackles of its genre and does what it really wants to do. "Kids in America" is a movie like that. It breaks out of Hollywood jail. You know all those "brainless high school comedies"? Here's what one would look like if it had brains."
