The film MIDDLE SCHOOL: THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE which will be released on Blu-ray and digital download January 3rd. Based off the New York Times bestselling novel series, Middle School follows Rafe as he attempts to keep his sanity by breaking every single school rule while dealing with the awkwardness of adolescence, bullying and family issues.
MIDDLE SCHOOL: The Worst Years of My Life chronicles the trials and triumphs of Rafe Khatchadorian, as he uses his wits to battle bullies, hormones and the tyrannical, test-obsessed Principal Dwight. Rafe has an epic imagination…and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to an oppressive, rule-crazy middle school.
Drowning in do’s and don’ts, Rafe and his scheming best friend Leo hatch a plan to break every rule in the school’s Code of Conduct. It’s Ferris Bueller meets Home Alone as their battle with Principal Dwight explodes into chaos both real and imagined. But Dwight displays his own fiendish creativity, striking back at the rulebreakers. Meanwhile, Rafe struggles to hide his misbehavior from Jeanne, the straight-A, overachieving girl of his dreams, and at home, his mother’s boyfriend — a moochy, jack-of-no-trades named Bear — threatens to become his stepfather. Rafe’s revolution leaps from the page to the screen in this ambitious live-action/animated comedy based on the New York Times bestseller “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life” by legendary novelist James Patterson.
Bullying, hormone changes, and crushes are all part of being a kid in middle school. 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.
