The New York Times best-selling series by James Patterson breaks all the rules when Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life arrives on Digital HD December 20 and Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD, and On Demand January 3 from Lionsgate and CBS Films. This hilarious, family-friendly leap from the page to the big screen stars Griffin Gluck (Batman vs. Robin) alongside Lauren Graham (TV’s “Gilmore Girls”), Rob Riggle (The Hangover), Thomas Barbusca (TV’s “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”), Andy Daly (Semi-Pro), Adam Pally (Dirty Grandpa), Isabela Moner (TV’s “100 Things to Do Before High School”), Isabella Amara (The Boss) and Alexa Nisenson (TV’s “Constantine”.)
Rafe has an epic imagination…and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to a rule-crazy middle school. Drowning in do’s and don’ts, Rafe and his best friend Leo hatch a plan to expose the principal by breaking every rule in the school’s Code of Conduct. As the principal strikes back, Rafe’s world, at home and at school, explodes into hilarious chaos (both real and imagined) in this laugh-filled family comedy based on James Patterson’s best-selling book series.
The Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life home entertainment release special features include four behind-the-scenes featurettes, a hilarious gag reel plus four deleted scenes, including one hilarious animated sequence.
Expect a bunch of insults and almost-swear words like “what the…,” “what rhymes with suck,” and “frickin’,” as well as “pissed off,” “buttwipe,” “doofus,” “stupid,” “crap,” and more. There’s also some light romance (including kissing and reference to a “hot” stepmom). But the movie also encourages honesty and communication between families and siblings and the importance of teachers who focus on students rather than test scores.
Do you remember your days of middle school, I sure do and I would not change it for the world , when things were so simple and I didnt have to be a adult. Great movie
