It’s not very often that I saw “Awww” when I watch a movie, but Disney’s Geek Charming, released on February 7th, definitely got a few “awwws” out of this viewer. Disney, who has been on quite a roll with its tween-focused movies in the past few years, has struck gold yet again with a high school movie that most of us can relate to in some way.
Dylan Schoenfield (played by Sarah Hyland of Modern Family) is the popular girl who everybody loves to hate. She treats her friends badly and the rest of the school, which buzzes around her, are barely noticed. She’s a spoiled shop-o-holic who appears to have it all, but early into the movie viewers become aware that Dylan’s life is not as perfect as it appears. After her mother passes away, Dylan’s busy and wealthy father does his best to replace “time” with “things”, turning dear daughter into a bit of a spoiled brat. We realize when she returns from a shopping spree, that Dylan is desperately lonely and misses having her mother and a family in her life.
Dylan has a singular focus, to win her campaign for high school Blossom Queen against her long-time rival “popular”. It appears to the viewers and her fellow students that her desire to win is about putting the final stamp of “most popular” on her high school career, but her co-star Josh (played by Matt Prokop) helps all of us discover there is more to Dylan than what meets the eye.
Josh is, for all intents and purposes, one the film “geeks” in the school who is not allowed to cross paths with the “popular”s due to clique lines which we all know are drawn in high schools world-wide. He’s out to win a film competition, and after falling flat with his original ideas he decides that making an expose about popularity has real potential. One day their two’s paths cross when Dylan accidentally drops her expensive handbag into the mall fountain and Josh becomes the hero of the day by going into the water and saving the bag.
A deal is struck between the two of them which both see as advantageous. Josh will be allowed to film a documentary on Dylan to allow him to potentially win the film festival and Dylan believes a film centered around her will help her campaign for Blossom Queen. Of course, filming a documentary requires spending a great deal of time together and as “Geek Charming” chips away at his Dylan’s facade he discovers a delightful young woman who misses her mother very much.
I could tell you the rest, but then you would miss out on movie which is a must-have for your collection as you will want to watch it again and again. You will not be disappointed with this excellent film.
