For a movie that I was for some reason expecting to be a bit edgy and hip, it was pretty cliche and conventional. Still an okay movie

When Charlie is befriended by two seniors he begins to understand that 'belonging' isn't just about fitting in.

I watched this movie. It is about a freshman student named Charlie who has trouble fitting in until he meets two seniors Patrick and Sam at a football game and they help him fit in. Unfortunately he falls in love with his new best friends and sister and another girl and it causes friction. I have to say Charlie learns a lot in this movie about heartbreak, friendships, and other standard teenage issues that teens go through everyday. Plus these actors also had excellent chemistry and did an excellent jobs with their roles.

<3 <3 Love this movie. It beats all movies in any race. Gotta love it. 'Are you baked?' 'Like a cake.' I loved Patrick's humour, Charlie's relatability, and Sam's lovable sense. A great movie in general. I'd love to own this movie to show to every single one of my friends. Listen to the movie and keep your friends close! Especially the good ones!

A good movie for anyone to watch. Plenty of humour.

I personally believe that this film glamorized, to an extent, at least for impressionable teenagers, who may not know better, drug -use, suicide, pre-marital Sex, etc. etc. etc. Yeahhhh, I don't know what the moral of the film WAS except that life is better with good friends around, so you better be Loyal and Make Some. :)))

Funny, yet sad coming of age story about those who don't fit in the common cliques. All is bearable with a good friend beside you....

An enjoyable teen movie - lots of drama - highs and lows.
