Storyline

Lloyd is a sweet and funny 11 year old class clown who's always getting into trouble with his teachers. Mrs. Crub is the meanest teacher in school. When Lloyd tries to rescue one of his classmates from her cruelty, he is banished to a class for "less enthusiastic" students. There, Lloyd joins three other sub-par students: Troy, Carla, and Storm. Lloyd learns a lesson about love when pretty Tracey becomes the newest class member. For Lloyd it's love at first sight. Unfortunately for sweet Lloyd, he is no match for the handsome Storm, the junior high "rebel without a cause." But with help from his mom, his little brother, and a mysterious magician, Lloyd learns that confidence and self-esteem can still get him the pretty girl in the end. Written by SOHO Films

The original title was better: he's an Ugly Kid.
28 November 2001 | by Fred MertzSee all my reviews

The movie made me laugh - alot - and often not for the intended purposes but its sheer ineptitude as translated to film.

The supporting cast makes the movie hysterical: Mr. Weid just about killed my wife and I every time he showed up. Taylor Negron is always funny but in this role, he stole the movie. Tony Longo as the constantly-yelling coach who promotes square dancing was another pleasant surprise. Overall, the dialogue for the teachers was nothing short of comedic genius.

The kids, though, had some terrible dialogue. My wife actually yelled at the television, exclaiming "what kid talks like that?!" and how could anyone argue? When the kids acted like kids, we died laughing ("Freeze, Pickle! This is a stick-up!" was the best line in the movie). When they had to fumble with corny dialogue, we noticed how bad the editing was and all the sundry mistakes made during the film.

The Calvillo family was over-employed on the set, I think. There are some scenes that required more explanation, more development to explain *how* the Ugly Kid (and boy is he ugly) learns to pseudo-salsa and lip-synch Spanish; dance a passable Tony Manero; and organize a group of kids who supposedly hate his guts? And why did the kids all put their (spent) candy all over the school?

Burning questions unanswered, best not asked in the first place. A reasonably good movie with some really funny scenes; the writer has some talent for this.
