Based on James Patterson's best-selling series, Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life opened in movie theaters nationwide yesterday, October 7. The film is rated PG and has a run-time of 92 minutes.
Rafe has an epic imagination...and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to an oppressive, rule-crazy middle school. Drowning in do's and don'ts, Rafe and his scheming best friend Leo hatch a plan to break every rule in the school's Code of Conduct. It's Ferris Bueller meets Home Alone as their battle with Principal Dwight explodes into chaos both real and imagined. But Dwight displays his own fiendish creativity, striking back at the rulebreakers. Meanwhile, Rafe struggles to hide his misbehavior from Jeanne, the straight-A, overachieving girl of his dreams, and at home, his mother's boyfriend -- a moochy, jack-of-no-trades named Bear -- threatens to become his stepfather.
We saw this movie last weekend and absolutely loved it. It is hard to find a teen-based movie that is appropriate for our daughter to see that is actually geared at her age group without the language and innuendos. This movie was hilarious but with serious, heart-tugging moments. My husband and I laughed right alongside of Rose during the movie. She even got choked up at the end with me when the plot twist came to light. I would definitely recommend taking your kids to this - it is perfect for ages 10 and up in my opinion.
