2.0 out of 5 stars Patronise me some more, go on.. 10 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
If the Wonder years was made into a feature length movie, produced and distributed by an organisation trying to augment it's overtly masculine, testosterone driven and aesthetically pleasing image, but package it as a serious drama, this would be it. The narrator has the voice down to a T, even making me think I was back with the Arnolds at one point. I hate to be cynical, but over the last few years the WWE has tried its hardest to augment its image, and while they've always had an array of wrestlers from different backgrounds they've always had good looking, charismatic people as winners. This has led to WWE creating an image for itself that it is going further than before to shake off. While the stars themselves have always been in touch with their fans, on screen its always the same aesthetically pleasing, masculine, offensively misogynist drama.

This film, then, tries its best to correct this, and goes about it in the most saccharine way I've quite literally NEVER seen outside of a children's tv show. It's based upon one almighty premise - the world is not tolerant enough. And so the film-makers decide to get past many modern touchy issues (like casting the bullied person as a muslim, for example) and launch themselves into the 50's. And then to sidestep another major issue (the world of adult bullying which is much more complex) they go to school.

In the schoolyard we have Big G, a not very good looking ginger boy who they've laughably given prosthetic ears. Big G is bullied, but he is a tower of strength. You also have their teacher who, a rumour underlines, is a homosexual. So, here we have the crux of the film, both characters are not 'normal' by societies standards (at the time, see what they did?) but are... wait for it... good people!

5.0 out of 5 stars Frank and direct about school bullying 26 Aug 2012
Format:DVD
This is a tender film because it deals with kids in eighth grade, just before high school, at the tender age of 14. At that age you have a certain number of kids, boys but also girls, who are cruel like devils, just because they are meeting with some difficulty in their life they cannot deal with and their pride made them take it down upon others and bully them. Cruelty is the most common goody these kids are living with and sharing.

The film is done from the point of view of a rather short guy, shy and who is used to be told by his father he did not do what he was doing well enough and having to let his father finish it. He dreams of kissing the best-looking girl in the school. And his luck or rather un-luck, though it might have been his best luck ever, was to be paired by his literature teacher with the tallest, ugliest, red-headed smartest and most bullied guy in the class, in the school.

That's the basics of the kid's story. One kid who is the friend of the main bully, is such an idiot and a racist that he panics one day because he is touched by the girl with dental braces. He then attacks her to get the curse off when the red-headed giant monster, Big G for most students, Stanley for some, gets him off his prey. That little, short small-minded imbecile just spreads the rumour that the literature teacher is a homo, as they said in 1965. His father and his mother are dumb enough not to know a rumour is nothing but a rumour and their kid has the worst possible complex imaginable. The teacher refuses to deny it and prefers leaving the school at the end of the school year to satisfy the rumourmongers. That's the gay part of the film.
