I never expected to enjoy this movie, but trust it was really good. The movie's your classic teen trying to fit in story. Johnny, Hawaiian surfer moves to Vermont. He doesn't fit in with his preppy peers at his school, so he makes friends with kids from a rival school. His peers consider him a traitor, and soon they get him in trouble with his principal and his parents. Guided by his grandfather's wisdom, Johnny finds way to solve problems. What makes this movie so good, is the way Johnny struggles to fit in.
