Rather Unrealistic, but the Message Is Pretty Good.

Debby Ryan is a fair actress (needs to work on her facial expressions, but that's besides the point) who helped to instill a very good message in this movie. It is easy to fall into the background because of your home life, bullies, and/or shyness. Overcoming the world and being yourself is what it's all about. Overall: The plot is typical with the mean girl with her ditzy and yet devilishly loyal best friend vying for the title of Prom Queen. There's Gavin (the protagonist's guitar playing crush) who is into the mean girl, but yet is also is into the shy girl/Radio Rebel. SPOILER ALERT: The only reason this movie is unrealistic is because Terra (Ryan's character) would have been discovered as Radio Rebel long before the end of the movie. Also some of the antics are too slapstick and the boys trying to find out who Radio Rebel is are just silly. Overall, I did like some points in the movie, but most of it was like: No way, that could never happen in a real school.

Fun flick for 10+

My daughter loved this film, except the kisses. She liked the rebelling against the principal (like she'd love to do with some adults in her life). Although she wouldn't try to break any rules, it gave her a way to let loose and imagine what if she had a bigger say in what happened in her life. It sparked some great discussions about cliques as well. The kissing and boyfriend issues in the film make me rate this for older kids.
