Debate-team teen comedy is clever, unpredictable.

True to Life Teen Dramedy isn't for everybody

Rocket Science isn't your typical teen comedy. It defies your expectations up until the credits and is funny, sad, and real. Every teen can connect with the main character who has a bad stutter and can't talk very well and when he does he usually makes a complete fool of himself. He is silenced and does not speak up for himself until Ginny Ryerson invites him to the debate team. He falls madly in love with her even obbsively is love with her. She on the other hand may be toying with him, or may have feelings. Rocket Science relates one year of the boy's life and it is a bizzare film. Even more so then an Anderson film or Baumbach. But it's experimental style and wit is enthralling and depending on the teen they may enjoy it or may not. This is not a feel good movie. It shows high school as it is, albeit somewhat exaggerated, and is great. Note: This film is R rated and there is much swearing and one scene of drinking. The only really inappropriate part is when two boys look at the Kamasutra and is an easily avoidable section
