memories........

Whenever anyone asks me what was the best and the worst moments in your life.The answer always zeroes down to the same place.Yes,the best moments in my life were spent in my School.The worst moment in my life was when I had grown up so old that I could no longer go to school.

I also like the animation stuff .

It delivers an easily digestible and amusing portrait of youthful hi- jinks that should well please its target audience. "Operation R.A.F.E.," short for "Rules Aren't for Everyone." The campaign entails a series of elaborate pranks, including the walls of the school being plastered with thousands of Post-It Notes and the trophy case transformed into an aquarium, complete with eel and lobster. Meanwhile, Rafe finds himself desperately attracted to his brainy classmate Jeanne (Isabel Moner), who shows signs of returning his interest.

It reminded me of my school days ,my school Kalyan Nagar Vidyapith.I miss you all my friends...

As I've said a thousand times before, the lack of live-action comedies for the younger members of our society saddens me. In the '90s, when I grew up, you couldn't get away from them. It was awesome. But nowadays, pre-teens' only options for movies are of the superhero variety. Or some other big budget franchise. Unless they merely want to watch animated films with characters that aren't human. And I'm not knocking computer animation. It's just that during a time when empathy is getting further and further away, it's nice for kids to see "tangible" characters that they can actually relate to.

And there have been some good live-action options for kids semi-lately. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, for example, was perfect. But many others dumb themselves down for children. And when this happens, you lose the parents as well.

Middle School isn't like that. It's full of quality humor and an engaging storyline that will find both kids and adults laughing out loud--the latter might even be surprised with how much they like it.

The film follows Rafe (Griffin Gluck), a middle schooler who's been inexplicably kicked out of his previous two schools. His active imagination, along with problems with authority, get him into trouble. Especially at his new school, where the principal (Andrew Daly) acts as a warden, creating asinine rules. The kids aren't allowed to talk in the hallways, wear colorful clothes, or even draw pictures.

Rafe isn't having any of this nonsense and wages a war with his principal in a Home Alone-type of way. It's highly entertaining seeing what he comes up with and how his life progresses with those around him, including his best friend, Leo (Thomas Barbusca), his sister Georgia (Alexa Nisenson), and his cool insouciant teacher, Mr. Teller (Adam Pally).

And with the quality talents of Rob Riggle, who plays Rafe's borderline-abusive future stepfather, and Daly, Middle School has humor for young and old.

Yeah, the script has some issues with a couple of jarring tonal shifts, but it also refreshingly surprises us when we least expect it.

I have a hard time knocking a film that does its job. It never talks down to kids--in fact, it gets kids all too well. There isn't some over-exaggeration of how much they use their phones. Even the banter feels lifelike. It speaks to adolescents who are at that "middle" stage between childhood and responsibility-hood. It's a fun time that most of us took for granted. But Middle School pleasantly brings us back so we can live it over again with Rafe--in a stunningly committed first-person narrative.

This film isn't just going through the motions, folks. There's a lot of genuine intent throughout. Plot points and jokes that are obviously very well meditated upon. While sitting and watching this movie, I legitimately thought to myself, "This isn't just a moneymaker for them--they actually want it to be good." Even if it were among the other classic live-action kid films of yesteryear, I would still go out of my way to watch it. I wish I had this movie when I was growing up. But at least I have it now.

Very important subjects but almost a failure as a kids movie

My 8 years old daughter forced me to take her to this movie. I was expecting a kid's comedy but to my surprise it had very little comedy and the main themes are mostly for adults. The main subject is the public education system; schools whose only goal is to get good results on whatever government imposed test in order to raise the school level and obviously get better bonus for the result. It does not matter that kids do not learn; since the goal is TEACHING THE TEST, NOT TEACHING THE PUPILS.

On the other hand, the movie attacks the extreme conduct rules of some schools; basically oriented to push discipline over creativity and punishing students by taking out unimportant classes like Arts or PE in order to accommodate budgets for "other business".

I did not read the original book; but I assume it was even more poignant about these issues.

However, as important and clear the message is; the movie does not deliver on the kids comedy part; there are too many sad situations like a cancer victim brother, a mother more interested in her career and getting company than in communicate with her children, a prospect self-center stepfather to ignore.

On top of that; when the main character start his rebellion against the dictatorship of both Principals; the pranks do not madness or energy to generate more than very mild smile.

The inclusion of the animated drawings created by the protagonist; do not really add anything to the move and felt kind of disconnected with the main story; they do not even reflex something funny or interesting.

In brief; kids get bored after about 30 minutes; but some pranks might get their attention back for a while; but we as parents need to think about the criticism the movie puts on the School system and how we communicate with our siblings.
