Max Keeble's Big Move

The writers must have racked their brains for the formula: two parts other movies to one part childhood revenge fantasies. The director must have lost sleep over what flies where during the food-fight scene. The father of the title character in this 2001 junior high comedy also has a demanding job—and it's hard for Max to admire him. The seventh grader has no better role model in his school principal, who succumbs to an occupational hazard for all movie principals: he always forgets the PA is on as he works to protect his own interests rather than those of the students—bullies and band geeks, a dream girl who proves shallow, and a female best friend Max will realize he likes better. Tim Hill directed a screenplay by Jonathan Bernstein, Mark Blackwell, and James Greer; with Alex Linz and Larry Miller. 101 min.
