This broader point about bullying and cliques is muddled by dated stereotyping attempting to be comedy. Add your rating See all 6 parent reviews.

Add your rating See all 2 kid reviews. She agrees and soon Ronald is the toast of the popular set. All the girls want to date him, all the boys want to be like him, and Cindy starts to warm up to him. From the outset, Ronald's popularity presents problems as well as privileges: He leaves his old friends behind, he starts to do badly in his classes, and as his personality changes, Cindy becomes disillusioned, and their budding friendship dissolves. It's only when his ploy is exposed that Ronald can start to think about the cost of playing any role, nerd or cool kid, and being anything other than what he really is.
High schoolers will have little tolerance for the simplified version of their social lives, and parents might object to younger children watching due to language and issues of sexuality.
There are a few charming moments, though, especially as Cindy and Ronald become friends. Overall, though, this film has not aged well. Humor that may have been considered funny decades ago like fat-shaming comes across as mean-spirited now. There are no consequences for bullying or underage drinking.
Parents who may have fond memories of this movie might be surprised to remember it isn't as good as they remembered.

Families can talk about how people deal with loneliness, popularity, and the demands of both. How do people "sell" themselves? The value of being true to yourself is a main theme of the movie. What does being true to yourself require? While ostensibly about the absurdity of cliques, this movie finds comedy in fat-shaming, in using terms that disparage the mentally challenged, in bullying, in sexist comments. How does this date the movie? How does this undercut the movie's theme?
