Overview

A small-town history teacher with a decidedly different approach to public education raises the ire of a stuffy biology teacher who's looking to win the "Teacher of the Year" award in this made-for-television family-oriented comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and David Paymer. Mr. D Reynolds doesn't just teach history, he lives it; and his passion for the oft-dreaded subject is infectious. Though the kids and the faculty all love Mr. D, biology teacher Matt Warner Paymer views the newly arrived educator as little more than another roadblock in his path to take the "Teacher of the Year" prize. The son of wildly popular educator Stormin' Norman John Astin -- a man who had achieved the astonishing feat of winning the top teacher award for 43 years in a row -- Matt Warner is desperate to prove his worth as a teacher by following in his fathers formidable footsteps. When Warner learns a secret about Mr. D that could bring the newly arrived teacher down and place Warner directly in position to take the Teacher of the Year title, the entire town of Fallbrook learns an important lesson that can't be taught in a textbook.

    Alright...

    Ryan Reynolds is obviously essential to this movie's success. I discovered this movie while searching under his work, I gave it a chance because of him, and he just flat out 'made' the movie. It is boring at times, and some characters are very annoying since this is aimed toward younger crowds, but one thing it is not is predictable. The bio of the movie on here implies that Warner (Paymer) finds something out about Mr. D (Reynolds) that would make him less-popular in the school's eyes and whatnot. That is a bit misleading, but that's the part that I never saw coming. I recommend this simply to any fan of Ryan Reynolds. He isn't in this nearly as much as he should be, but when he is, he does not disappoint!
