I'd like to see Morgan Freeman take over THIS school.
| Original Score: 3/5
James Belushi is great in The Principal, whether he is giving a speech, throwing out a one-liner, or just raising an eyebrow.
An arresting drama starring likable Jim Belushi as an antihero principal trying to clean up a violent, drug-infested high school. Won't be a favorite of ACLU members.
Bypasses heart-warming stuff completely, going instead for macho yelling and simple two-word slogans. Class dismissed.
| Original Score: 63/100
Violent, but still darkly humorous, Christopher Cain's "The Principal" takes the old 'new teacher comes to rough high school and takes out the garbage' theme and adds Belushi's renowned sense of wit and likeability.
