The idea here isn't to titillate with tawdry teen hormones, but to offer an outlet for all that mental distress young people take on while trying to find their place in the world.

A gentle, positive high-school drama about how little courage it actually takes to break through adolescent panicky silence and embrace everyone's differences.

While the lead performances are pretty amateurish, the film benefits from a terrific supporting cast. Current high school students will likely find the film relatable and enjoyable.

When it comes to constructive gay-themed material aimed at teens, perhaps half a loaf remains better than none.

The film feels like a throwback, but it's at least a useful introduction to the subject.

Handles serious issues with a light touch, and should resonate with adolescents.

While a perfect consciousness-raiser for those 16 and under, for those of you who've already started shaving regularly, this might be more of a wobbly entertainment.

"Well-meaning" is about the best one can say about The Geography Club.

As a manifesto for tolerance and a contribution to greater social and gender harmony, this is an exercise all to the good. As a film, however, it's something of a snooze.

Its heart is in the right place, even if it is a sappy one.

"Geography Club" almost makes up in good intentions what it lacks in technique and execution.
