Rocket Science

DVD review from Nick at Nite

Rocket Science

This is not a movie about rockets or science. It is a movie about a kid with a stutter who joins his school’s debate team to hook up with a girl. I laughed some, was mildly disturbed some, and sat in bewilderment at other times. This movie does not have an afterschool special feel to it. It has a good message, but not the ending you would expect. Our star does not become the star debater. He does not win the girl. I am not sure what he learns, I think it has something to do with trying. Loved the soundtrack. Think Juno meets Garden State. I give it an “A.” Check it out.
