An excellent movie with moving, nuanced performances by the lead actors. I found myself engaged and actually caring about what happens to the main characters. The film deftly handled the troubling issue of child abuse and the subsequent emotional scars left behind. Anyone who has ever felt that they didn't quite fit in will find some character to identify with.

This movie is for everyone. Almost every teen in this world could relate to this movie, it's inspiring and helps everyone (even adults) in a problem or issue they faces. The acting is awesome and this movie deserves rewards.

We were all awkward freshmen and cool seniors once upon a time. This movie nails the high school experience and will bring back some wonderfully painful memories. There's plenty of music, partying, first-time sex, and abuse in this movie. Go see it because you'll get to relive some of those experience while watching a terrifically crafted film.

I knew little about the movie and was definitely not the 'target audience' for the movie as I'm in my mid 40's but something compelled me to go see it anyway.... and am I GLAD I DID! What an amazing film. I can say nothing negative about it, it has absolutely everything going for it. The characters were so likeable, the storyline was very endearing and the acting/actors were INCREDIBLE. It is one of those movies that I will never forget. It is definitely on the top of the list of my favorites movies and I will be seeing it again as soon as it's available to purchase. I would say this is the definition of a 'MUST SEE' movie!!!

This movie was a huge suprise i expected a cute movie but woah this was really emotional and sad at parts! I'll start off by saying the cast is awesome and the acting is top notch. now that i got that out the way another thing that this movie has iis that it is a smart high school comedy most high school comedys are just over the top and crazy but this movie was so grounded and emotional and i liked that. I also liked how they gave you hints of charlieschildhood throughout the movie and at the end boom connects and ties up all the loose ends and this movie actually is really accurate and modern because a lot of things that are in this movie still actually happen today in schools unlike some movies were bullys do things that are "old school" . Paul rudd was so different in this movie he's usually the funny guy but he was so serious and i limed his role because it shows that he's not juat the funny man!. I would give this a 8.5/10
