When socially awkward home-schooled kid spots one-legged beauty Anastasia at his town's local school, he's instantly hooked. Determined to find a way of getting closer to her, and fed up with his sheltered existence, Liam persuades the principle and his suffocating but loving mum, Claire (Judy Greer), into letting him trial high school life for himself. As her beloved son navigates a new and unfamiliar world of sex, drugs and social studies, and struggles to impress a girl who doesn't even know he exists, Claire realises there may still be one lesson left to teach - the art of teenage rebellion. Starring Judy Greer (Jurassic World, Ant-Man, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica, Hawaii Five-O), Russell Peters (Source Code, Chef, The Jungle Book) and Daniel Doheny (Alex Strangelove), Public Schooled is a riotous coming-of-age comedy, full of sentiment, character and heart.

Here in ‘Public Schooled’, in constructing their yarn about a home-schooled genius who persuades his super-close Mum to enroll him in public school so that he can chase the girl of his dreams, the producers of this film inadvertently stray into a bizarre and borderline creepy mother-son relationship scenario. That figures.
But it’s funny with sufficient charmingly light forward narrative momentum, that it never quite strays into oedipus schmoedipus; although it does definitely and uncomfortably skirt its edges. This is perhaps no bad thing as it gives substance to an otherwise lightweight and predictable comedy.
Which isn’t to say that it isn’t good. It is. The characters are really likable and even the school Principal hitting on Mum is a bit of a laugh. On the down side, it looks more made for telly than you’d expect from a cinema movie and has too many bland and irrelevant pop songs. Short’ish at 86 minutes. 4 stars.
