Synopsis

Rotten Tomatoes 88% high rating!

David Gold, a pathologically immature former child actor, has never been able to get over high school. Today, he was just diagnosed with skin cancer and got fired from the last acting gig he could get.

Desperate for money, he fakes his resume, and gets a job as a high school guidance counsellor. The students of Grusin High love him - it might be because he drinks and smokes with them.

But this is just the beginning of his downward spiral. When he meets Jabrielle, a teenaged outcast who's just as screwed up as he is, he might learn that in the company of teenagers, sometimes you can go too far, especially when it comes to committing a ridiculous crime.

"It's a creative hat trick of wildly amusing proportions."-Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
