A 2005 comedy film directed and co-written by Josh Stolberg.
The film tells the story about a group of diverse students at Brooker High who had enough of bully for a principal, Donna Weller, when she announce thats shell run for State School Superintendent. They must gather enough attention to prove to the citizens of Wellers methods against the student body and what could mean for the rest of the state.
Not to be confused with a Kim Wilde song of the same name.
Tropes used in this film:
- All School Violations Are Equal: Weller treats any form of rebellious nature as this.
- Alpha Bitch: Donna Weller
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Charlotte explains at rally fashion would be next target in Weller's campaign to stump out their freedoms.
- Big Man on Campus: Holden Donovan... hey, it takes balls to rally your peers against a bully for a principal.
- Bullying a Dragon: The student body opts for this against Weller
- High School: The primary setting
- Let's Get Dangerous!: Their voices are meant to be heard, no kidding.
- Loophole Abuse: Weller obviously knows the First Amendment cause doesnt mention about schools using censorship, since congress are the ones who are subjected. The students also finds one loophole, there isnt a law that states it's illegal to call the people about the issue and tell them about their problems, including the news media.
- Kid Has a Point: The students hate their principal for a reason
- No Student Gets Left Behind: Theres strength in numbers for a reason.
- Rousing Speech: Lawrence gives this one to the group while at the hospital.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Holden Donovan and Will Ducker both opt for this.
- Serious Business: These students take their fight and mean it, even if it means vandalism.
- Very Loosely Based on a True Story: The Word of God, aka Josh Stolberg, explains he was reading about three cases where students were suspended for their actions.
