Middle School is not the easiest thing on the planet. When your figures of authority make rules that make very little sense, sometimes it takes an act of creative disobedience to have your voice heard. The upcoming film Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life is based on the James Patterson novel of the same name, and follows a young man named Rafe, and his attempts to bring creativity back into the lives of his fellow students. The film stars Griffin Gluck, Lauren Graham, Rob Riggle, Thomas Barbusca, Andy Daly and Adam Pally.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Rafe has an epic imagination…and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to an oppressive, rule-crazy middle school. Drowning in do’s and don’ts, Rafe and his scheming best friend Leo hatch a plan to break every rule in the school’s Code of Conduct. It’s Ferris Bueller meets Home Alone as their battle with Principal Dwight explodes into chaos both real and imagined. But Dwight displays his own fiendish creativity, striking back at the rulebreakers. Meanwhile, Rafe struggles to hide his misbehavior from Jeanne, the straight-A, overachieving girl of his dreams, and at home, his mother’s boyfriend — a moochy, jack-of-no-trades named Bear — threatens to become his stepfather.
Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life comes to theaters October 2016.
