Full of It (2007)
Movie InfoA teenager with a penchant for tall tales becomes tangled in his own complex web of deceit upon transferring to a new school in this cautionary comedy of little white lies starring Craig Kilborn, Carmen Electra, Teri Polo, and Ryan Pinkston. Sam Leonard (Pinkston) is the new kid at Bridgeport High. A few inches shorter and a little less athletic than his new classmates, Sam is sent knocking on the door of high-school guidance counselor after a particularly embarrassing locker room mishap. Upon determining that the only way to win over his skeptical new classmates is to convince them just how cool he truly is, the scheming student quickly begins to concoct a series of outlandish lies about his background. In Sam's new world, his father is a rock star and his mother a successful avant-garde artist. When Sam wakes up the following morning to discover that his vivid exaggerations have seemingly manifested themselves in reality, his priorities begin to shift as he discovers that there's much more to life than just being popular. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Full of It
Despite a novel premise and an appealing, energetic cast, Full Of It seldom finds magic in its supernatural whimsy.
At first glance more stylish than its peers, Full of It rapidly slips into the cliches of the genre.
There is a glimmer of comedy, but it's quickly swamped in overextended gags and broad caricatures.
It's still better than a lot of teen comedies with much bigger budgets.
There have been worse ideas for teen comedies, but few have been as badly executed as this one.
...a particularly frustrating missed opportunity that should've (and could've) been so much better.
There was a moment when I hoped it might actually be a send-up of the Can't Buy Me Loves, She's All Thats, Never Been Kisseds, Mean Girls, Heathers, Freaky Fridays, and every-John-Hughes-movie-ever-made of the world. But no.
[A] prepubescent piece of piffle in comparison to a hearty belch--it's obnoxious, loud, smelly then soon will disappear into the thin air.
While Pinkston does a serviceable job and makes an all-too believable nerd, he's neither charming nor funny enough to give the material the extra spark it so desperately needs to engage us.
Full of It isn't just a title. Add an S and an H, and you have my most honest review.
I didn't know who Ryan Pinkston was before I watched Full of It, and now I pray to the cinema gods I will never have to wince through another one of his insufferable movies again.
This throwaway teen fantasy has its moments but it appears as if the dog ate the script.
Somehow Full of It got made and got distributed, despite its nearly fanatical lack of wit or originality.
