Pretty sure that this movie is only remembered because of J.A.R (Jason Andrew Relva) by Green Day

Definitely could've been better.

This is a good film. While it follows the family fun structure, it still holds its own today. It has a central character into science and dealing with weight issues. The commentary on difference is standard, but the commentary on weight is impressive, expanding beyond the main character and into issues that still pervade our culture today. It's also funny, charming, and has a great soundtrack, including Green Day's J.A.R.

A sweet, little gem of a teenage comedy.

Should've called this movie ME!!! I'm not as big as the kid, but my life in high school was just as pathetic. I will never understand why this movie got no love. It's one of my favorites and I WISH someone would put out a DVD or Blu-Ray already!

Talbert is quite good and Owen is the comedy relief as his buddy. Richards is gorgeous in this and is the girl all geeks like me wanted in High School. I believe this was Scott's last film too and he's very good as the Grandpa.
Van Der Beek, yes Dawson's Creek himself, is such a great bully too. You'll probably want to pop him in the face a half dozen times.

There is a few very sad scenes in there too, and the soundtrack is FANTASTIC!!!!

I thought this was "Tommy Boy" for kids before I saw it. It's not, but it has a lot of heart.

This one is about a overweight high schooler who has loved a girl since they were little. And he gets bullied by the quarterback of the high school football team which also sets a prank up where angus has to dance with her at the high school dance. The movie wasn't too bad it has a decent story and was acted out well. It was a enjoyable movie but I think it is one of those where you only feel like watching it once or you're bored and gave nothing else to do.

Movie with Heart, compasion and estrange humor.
When Angus is outcast because of his weight he's constantly the butt of jokes. His bestfriend is like a turtle hiding under his shell when hell breaks loose. Angus is a dreamer and inspires us all to stand up for what you are, People can truly be cruel Angus welcomes us to his life. This movie really is about skin deep personalitys.

Ordinary story of teenage angst, although this one is not as over-the-top as some other family oriented movies.

Classic mid-1990s high school feel, complete with a great mid-90s soundtrack and a great cast of actors both young and old. I think I'd probably give it a 3.5 but the nostalgia factor kicks it up a notch. :)

Very good movie from the mid 90s about a high school misfit named Angus. It is funny, but also has some good dramatic elements to it. The music in it is great.

Hugely underrated film and one of my favorites growing up, especially since I was in my early teens like Angus when this film debuted. I could see why this film did not do as well at the box office but I am glad to see Angus became a cult classic more than 15 years later. I am surprised Charlie Talbert did not get more roles after this film because he was excellent as the title character. Perhaps he was so good he became typecast after one film. James Van Ber Beek, well before Dawson's Creek, was excellent as the antagonist Rick but it was the relationship between Angus and Troy that was the strength of the film. Ariana Richards was very cute but definitely seemed more approachable than Patrick Read Johnson would have you believe in this film. Must see for all teens who feel bullied, a film that still has value today.
