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 ...

The lead character's sister is more interesting than he is, and she spends much of her screen time as a mute mime.

As generic and forgettable as its title, this half-hearted attempt at a teen comedy feels like a term paper you might buy online: poorly written and cribbed from a million other sources.

When the biggest name in the movie is Janeane Garofalo, why waste her in an extraneous, laugh-free side role as the protagonist's neglected housewife mother?
