Great movie! (Sort of)

You know a movie is good if you can watch it more than once and find it as good as the first time. #Roxy is a kind of movie that when you watch it once, your done. It was also very predictable

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The film, with its very engaging young hero, some clever dialogue, and lighthearted, relevant messages, should appeal to teens in spite of its often silly story and high school caricatures. Throughout, the players and filmmakers seem to be having fun, enjoying the update of and references to the timeless classic from which it's derived. There's strong rooting interest for Cyrus and Roxy, but viewers won't lose sympathy for the clueless but chivalrous Christian either. The usually menacing Danny Trejo has a genial role as an unconventional high school principal. #Roxy never takes itself too seriously, so it's doubly surprising when the movie turns dark with a particularly vicious fight scene to help resolve the plot. Still, the movie is a good-natured entry in the rapidly-expanding genre of teen romantic comedies.
