Critic Reviews for General Education
What screenwriters [Tom] Morris, Elliot Feld and Jaz Kalkat fail to build is dramatic tension: affable, extremely self-involved Levi easily skates around all obstacles.
If given the choice between going to class and seeing the high-school comedy General Education, go with school.
Defiantly humorless, the comedy is little more than a grab-bag of familiar high school-film cliches populated with bland characters played by barely-there actors. It was clearly a labor of love for no one.
The film is like a new colt tripping over itself, going off every which way ...
Audience Reviews for General Education
It clearly has a definitive style, as far as the acting is concerned. More of a "30 Rock" hyper-reality than earnest acting/reacting. And the film is also well-shot and professionally made. I tried to like it, but about halfway through, I gave up and fast-forwarded to the end.
★★ (out of four) Here comes another teen comedy that wants the audience to cheer for the obnoxious central character and hope he gets away with things simply because he IS the main character. The script is quite predicatable and the situations have all been done and done to death. Levi Collins (Chris Sheffield) thinks he can wisecrack his way through graduation and into a college of his choice on an athletic scholarship. But he has just flunked one of his class and the teacher won't let him graduate unless he takes summer school. Afraid to tell his parents, he convinces the school to let him walk in the ceremony and then he pretends to have a summer job while he is really in class. Of course things come to a head in the end and he must prove himself to everyone. It's been done before...sometimes worse...sometimes better.

Another gem I just saw, what a great movie too watch. I love when films like this come along, and this new hot sexy girl Ms. Walsh, stole the show for me, I know shes been around, she's just never caught my eye until now. A lot of talent in this one, it just worked so well, it was like Summer School meets Rushmore, not exactly, but I just like slapping shit like that together because it sounds nice and easy. Just a fun movie too watch, who doesn't like movies like this crazy people thats who.
