Canada, English, 90 mins

  • Director: Pat Mills
  • Writer: Pat Mills
  • Producer: Brendan Brady; Mark Gingras

CGiii Comment

It’s been 3 long years since Pat Mills gave us the rather wonderful Guidance.

Joy-upon-joy, he’s back, back with his sharpened axe and back in high-school...with the adorable Irene...and, Geena Davis!

There’s nothing more enjoyable than spending 90 minutes rooting for the underdog(s) – Irene embraces the names-will-never-hurt-me maxim...to a point!

Young and old, this is a crowd-pleasing, toe-curling, camp-infused, heart-warming little film...with a mighty sting in its tale...bullies beware!

The(ir) Blurb...

When Irene - the fattest girl in high school - gets suspended, she must endure two weeks of community service at a retirement home. Following her passion for cheerleading, she secretly signs up the senior residents to audition for a dance-themed reality show to prove that you don't need to be physically 'perfect' to be perfectly AWESOME.
