Vanessa gets a dose of reality when Philip, her one true love, ends their relationship, again. The quirky teen enrolls in his school to win him back, but ends up making matters worse. Downgraded to social outcast, Vanessa struggles to reclaim Phillip's affection. Luckily, when Vanessa is declared a captain for the school's Snowstorm Survivor competition, she assembles a team of likeminded misfits to prove they deserve to compete and hopefully win her love's heart again. -- (C) Official Site

If 'Napoleon Dynamite' had had a bigger heart it may have turned out like this sweet and smart comedy about high school misfits.
The filmmaker knows how to gently skew reality just enough to offset the excess cuteness.
It's more appealing than anything Hollywood has recently offered the 8- to 13-year-old female demographic.
There's almost nowhere for such a plot to go that audiences haven't seen countless times before.
A spoonful of sugar, to say nothing of bright pastel colors and friendly bunny rabbits, helps the medicine go down in the sometimes ungainly but often winning prep school comedy Dear Lemon Lima.
A gifted cast of young actors and a darkly comic outlook make the charming "Dear Lemon Lima" anything but sour.
The debuting Suzi Yoonessi ably remains the right side of twee in turning her adolescent journal into a delightful misfit comedy.
Dear Lemon Lima is a quirky beauty of a film with its cotton-candy colors, Miranda July-esque sensibility, and its embracing of alienation as a source of creativity.
