#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – High School. Four of the most important years of your life. But it isn’t always dances and keg parties and sucking face in your parents’ mini-van. Sometimes it’s ugly and hard and complicated. As complicated as a conspiracy to overthrow the president. There’s something rotten at St. Donovan’s High and sophomore newspaper reporter Bobby Funke is on it like pink rubber bands on your little sister’s braces. When senior hottie Francesca Facchini solicits Funke’s help tracking down a set of stolen SATs, Funke uncovers a story dirtier than the lunch lady’s mustache. After he fingers the school president (figuratively) for the crime, Funke becomes one of the most popular kids at St. Donovan’s High. No longer known simply as the freshman who was once tied to a giant snowman penis, Funke wins the respect of everyone from the Desert-Storm-hero-turned-educator Principal Kirkpatrick to the kid that farts on him in Spanish class. When Francesca takes Funke to homecoming, even the in-school suspension delinquents turn nice and offer guidance on how to keep his boner in check during slow dances. But high school’s not always what it seems. As Funke’s popularity grows so do his suspicions. Did the president really steal the SATs? Or is Funke just a pawn in a conspiracy as complicated as adolescence itself? Determined to find the truth, Funke digs deeper and unearths the sordid underbelly of St. Donovan’s. Student council members, college bookies, public school brats, everyone seems to play a part. Armed only with a learner’s permit and the spirit of Woodward and Bernstein, Funke must crack the case before it cracks him.
Plot: After the theft of copies of SAT exams from a principal’s office, teenage reporter Bobby Funke sets out to unmask the thief. Bobby prints an article fingering Class President Paul Moore as the thief, shredding the youth’s reputation. But as Bobby gets to know Paul’s girlfriend, Francesca, he comes to realize he was wrong about Paul, so he sets out to unmask the true culprit.

The name’s Bobby Funke…I write for the paper
“The name’s Bobby Funke…I write for the paper” as soon as this dialogue came up in the opening few minutes, I thought hmm…maybe this film would be interesting. As it turned out, after about 90 minutes from that time, I think it was an interesting film but not entirely. As ambiguous as this sounds, the film almost entirely was carried off by the good performance from its lead Reece Thompson. He was just about perfect for the role of Funke.
The pace of the film is very nice and the storyN/A unveils nicely. Though predictable at times, the screenplay never gave up all its cards before the climax. The music was well suited and the side characters did their job well except for a few.
Now the biggest culprit is Mischa Barton. For some reason she was never convincing enough and always appeared very phony. Least to say she didn’t immerse herself into the character. Though we all know she is not famous for her acting skills, she didn’t put her 100% behind the role. For all her fans there is some good news…she shows off her boobs in this film.
Now, this film is no Oscar winner or a GEM or one of the best ever and I’m positive the film-maker never intended it to be BUT its quite enjoyable if you can look beyond Mischa Barton and to a small extent the predictability of the plot. I must add, it has quite a few funny moments. The dialogue is good at some instants and horrible at others.
A slamdunked cult classic with smarts to spare…
It’s the coming-of-age of a gum-chewing gumshoe, from geek to sleek, in the ‘meanhalls’ of the school that never sleeps. And as such, it’s one hilarious genre-spoof that actually works on all levels, the kind that when you’re not laughing out right you’re grinning from ear to ear. I’d even say it drives a stake thru Twi’blight, especially in regards to the hyper-true-love-of-the-super-mature-movie-teens.
I loved the ‘school as prison’ backdrop- Shawshank meets Hamlet 2 sort of thing, but neither over-the-top nor under-fed. The bad guys are neither psychotic nor one-dimensional while the good guys (and gal), well, they’re not angels and this, again, is pitch-perfect and so refreshing compared to the usual Hollywood polarization.. and kudos on the editing, the dialogue, the pace – everything really.
One questionable casting choice however is Mischa Barton. I can’t seem to come up with a better alternative and she is OK but nothing more -as opposed to the rest of the cast. She seems to have some kind of acting-facial-paralysis, very noticeable in her last scene, and for her sake, I hope she learns to transcend this botox-haze she shares with Kirsten Dunst among others. But this is truly a minor (possible) blemish in an otherwise awesome little movie where the whodunnit is somewhat gratuitous but then, you wouldn’t want it any other way.
