Cute and cheeky

This is a pleasant, low budget, entertaining film. The story is built around a high school production of a play written by a former student of the school. But there are complications galore. It's funny. It's clever. It's original. There are a lot of laughs but also some serious moments, a bit of rumpy-pumpy and a few profanities, tied to-gether with a humorous, British accented voice over commentary and occasional, bluntly worded on screen titles. It's a happy combination of good writing, interesting characters, original ideas and snappy production, all done on a low budget.

There's no business like school business...

Sleeper success that catches its audience unawares. Julianne Moore proves she's still at the top of her game playing 45-year-old spinster school teacher in Pennsylvania who encourages a former student with his writing, committing herself to seeing that his original play is approved by the school board for production by the drama department, but instead yielding herself to a sexual indiscretion in the process. Tangled-web dark comedy, framed like a modern day absurdist fairy tale, begins as a lightly-comic character study before fusing itself to a sharp satire of the high school dynamic. Fortunately, both sides work beautifully, with excellent supporting turns by Michael Angarano (a terrific young actor), Greg Kinnear as the boy's father and Nathan Lane as the passionate drama teacher. Extremely well-written by Dan and Stacy Chariton, who provide such an offbeat touch to both situation and dialogue that one never knows what's going to happen next. A marvelous surprise. *** from ****

I enjoyed this film...though I will admit parts of it made me uncomfortable, it is also a funny tale of how sometimes even with the best intentions, we end up making mistakes.

What struck me with this movie is that one can relate to each of the characters who in some way have made some kind of mistake but ultimately end up moving on and have some kind of positive change and resolution after the fact.

That being said, I feel like the film was a little uneven. The opening was entertaining, but I don't feel like the light-hearted beginning that was somewhat Bridget Jones-esque carried all the way through the film until the very end. It was darkly humorous in the middle and I feel like the British narration would have lightened up the movie significantly if it was featured throughout the entire movie and not just at the beginning and end.
