By Brit Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 Sept. 2012
Format: DVD
I remember buying this film on video when it first came out in 2001 (that makes me feel slightly old now). I was as huge fan of the brilliant 'Recess' cartoon series and was excited that there was a film out. I didn't like it at the time and only watched it once. Years later, I decided to give it another go and can really appreciate now what a pretty solid film this was. When you compare it to the two DVD specials ('Taking The 5th Grade' and 'All Grown Down'), 'Schools Out' is a masterpiece.

I won't spoil anything by revealing some of the plot, but I will say the usual Recess messages (the importance of friendship and how teamwork can save the day) are present throughout the movie. It's is an exciting storyline and all of the characters are just as they appear in the show, with the same voice artists. I particularly liked the needed background information revealed about Principle Prickly, as we are given an insight into how he was as a young man, and how he got into the teaching profession in the first place. Also, we actually have some music, good stuff as well, a mix of original material and standards like 'Dancing in the Street', and retro '60s-psychedelic Summer hits such as 'One'. The closest we ever got to music in the show, came via Mickey's crooning, and Miss Finster singing a song called something like 'Hula Hula Baby'.

'School's Out' should appeal to both teenagers and adults alike, and is well worth watching if your a fan of the show. The DVD itself contains has cool bonus features, including 'Ten Secrets of Recess', where the show's creators Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere reveal a few things that even an avid fan like myself didn't know.

Loved Recess for years, since i was a little child, and when TV shows are made into a film it can be awesome, or really bad, but Recess have done a perfect job here.

Really it's just like one massive 1 hour & 20 mins episode which is always the best way to-do these things i feel.

As for the film itself.. It's The Last Day of School & the guys are pulling a prank, we have a old head teacher trying to ban Summer Vacation, ninjers, Ms. Finster fighting for the school, plus a fantastic Soundtrack, all in all one great movie that i will be watching again I'm sure!

Recess is something of a misnomer. Despite it's ability to blend quickfire humour and morality it's success has fluctuated with the regularity of the recess bell itself. Yet the spirit of the show which follows the summer vacation's of TJ Detwieler and co. is once more enhanced by this, it's most recent DVD outing.

Whilst the kid's are at summer camp, TJ (or Teej) stumbles across a plot that will change recess forever. Now he must get the gang back together to thwart the plan.

The animation is certainly better than any Pokemon venture, but don't expect Pixar. The strength of Recess has always been in the dynamics between the kids and adults and this remains a potent mix here.

School may be out, but Recess is always in.

The review I first saw on this claimed that the TV show of Recess "jumped the shark" with this movie. In my opinion, although I prefer the ten-minute episodes, this movie isn't as bad as that. It's funny, creative, and entertaining. My main problem is that it is much less realistic than the TV show, with a simplistic villain, and a plot I'd expect from a "Spy Kids" movie.
I won't go into the plot. The main idea is that a jealous ex-principal wants to bring up test scores by making it impossible for kids to have fun outside, so they spend all their time inside studying - and they try to take summer vacation away to do so.
The characters are still the same people, with the main gang still having their tendency to get into trouble (specifically TJ), and while many of the antagonists from the show work with the other characters, they still have the same personality traits and quirks (ie: The Ashleys).
My main complaint with the movie is no fault of the movie itself, but rather my own opinion. I liked the TV shows because it gave endless possibilities to see the characters of the kids. The movie had to focus on action, and as such, it didn't spend much time on character, as the main audience would value action. My favourite character has always been Spinelli, and I just missed her for some reason, even though she was there as much as anyone else. Maybe I'm just blinded as a TJXSpinelli shipper.
OK. But overall, this is a decent (but underrated) movie. I wouldn't buy it at huge expense, but if it's going cheap, definitely worth it.

The movie is a feature length version of the popular cartoon t.v. series. The storyline is... The kids have broken up for the summer holidays and T.J has planned the coolest summer ever. The only problem is the rest of the gang have gone to camp. T.J is left on his own and sees scientists doing experiments on the scool and trying to blow up the moon!
The film is more of a kids based story but if adults like the normal episodes they are sure to love the movie. It certainly kept me entertained and it's one of those films you can watch again and again.
