Quotes: Carson Phillips:
Life comes at you fast. It runs through your body and tries to escape and be expressed in any way possible. It's a lot like lightning.
Carson Philips wants to be a journalist and blackmails half the student body to join his literary magazine to better his chances of getting into his dream college.
This coming of age film was well written and showed one of the other
sides of Actor/Writer/Producer Chris Colfer. He originally wrote it
when he was about 18 and dipped into some very complicated matters such
as divorce. I would recommend this to anyone of any age. Some matters,
although they seem very childlike (like blackmailing others to get what
you want), touch on some serious aspects such as how schools are run.
Although it is unlikely for someone to get struck by lightning and die
spontaneously, it does bring awareness to many problems. Rebel Wilson
is incredible in this. Even in the end when half the theater was
balling their eyes out and i had the equivalent of a glass full of
water on my sweater from crying, she made everyone laugh literally out
loud. Her one liners were all her; she was doing improv for pretty much
the whole move. Recap: EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH THIS. its not sappy but
its sad, its hilarious, and it touches one important subjects.
