Genre:

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 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. Meanwhile, at home, Charlie keeps charming his way out of an inevitable confrontation with his adoring but utterly overwhelmed mother, Marilyn. Then, Charlie Bartlett makes his big mistake: falling in love with the beautiful and bold daughter of the school's increasingly disenchanted Principal, who is hot on his trail. As Charlie Bartlett's world and fledgling psychiatric practice unravel, he begins to discover there's a whole lot more to making a difference than handing out pills.

    Really good comedy, with outstanding performances. Kat Dennings steals the show, which is no mean feat in a film with Robert Downey Jr. and Hope Davis.

    A wonderful movie. Amazing cast. Has been described as a modern day Ferris Bueler, but I think this is far better.

    Anton Yelchin is great in the movie, playing a part that Downey would have played when he was younger. The adults in the movie are almost as screwed up as the kids. Great soundtrack and the monologue charlie gives at the audition is brilliant. Kat Dennings, maybe its me but there is something about her. Cant wait to see how Anton does as Kyle Reese in Terminator 4.

    It's funny throughout but a bit cringeworthy too. Several afterschool special moments.
