Love this movie the second time around as much as the first. Great quirky "coming of age" movie and funny example of the social niches of high school. My tweener loved it as well.

The acting was great.

Even though I am not in its target audience, this was a fun movie with a message and I found it enjoyable. It was what I wanted - something light-hearted but not complete fluff, with a decent script and good acting and a few scenes of one of my favourite actors (Robert Downey Jr). Anton Yelchin was very charming as Charlie Bartlett - I would say he was as likeable a lovable rogue as Ferris Beuller was for my generation.

Shows truths about our culture that we like to ignore.

This movie is decently funny, and consists of some really cute and clever scenes. It also has an very unique and original concept. I would recommend this movie to someone looking for something lighthearted and cute, although I wouldn't go into this with to high of expectations. It is well acted and well scripted, but its not for everyone.

Charlie Bartlett: I guess I should tell you about the first time I had my period. My daddy was driving me back from summer camp, and I turned to him and said, "Daddy, I think I'm sloughing!" And he said, "That's nice hunny." And I realized, that he had like, *no idea*, what sloughing meant! So I explained to him, that it meant blood was gushing from my you know where! And he nearly wrecked the car, trying to hand me a wad of fast food napkins, which is not something you'd want to particularly stick up your hooch!
