John & Becky’s Movie Review of Charlie Bartlett

Charlie BartlettBecky and I went to see the comedyCharlie Bartlett at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado last week. The Yahoo website at Charlie Bartlett describes the movie as follows:

“Charlie Bartlett has been kicked out of every private school he ever attended. And now that he’s moved on to public school, he’s simply getting pummeled. But when Charlie discovers that the kids who surround him–the outcast and the popular alike–are secretly in desperate need, his entrepreneurial spirit takes over. Hanging up his shingle in the Boys’ restroom, Charlie becomes an underground, not to mention under-aged, shrink who only listens to the private confessions of his schoolmates, and makes the imprudent decision to hand out the pills he’s proffered from his own psychiatric sessions.”

The Review
Charlie Bartlett was a very different film that we both enjoyed. I thought it was a riot. The kid in this flick was great, it’s a bit far fetched, but funny and fun. Robert Downey Jr. was great as the mixed up school Principal and confused father. The story was really goofy about a spoiled rich kid who has some Daddy issues, Charlie, who continues to get kicked out of private school for his illegal entrepreneur activities until he lands in the public school system and finds a new field of expertise.

Freebie Ad Life of Brian movie download Charlie realizes that his family is a bit different since he has a psychiatrist on staff for his personal issues. He also realizes that the kids he is going to school with also have issues and his idea is to listen to their problems and help solve them. There is quite a bit of prescription drug use in this film, but there are consequences for his actions and that makes for a good film.

We both thought it was an interesting flick. Becky rated it as a Rental and I thought it was Worth The Trip.

John – *** Worth The Trip
Becky – ** Rental
