Felix, last name the same as the Ninja Turtle's best friend, played by a charming Cameron Dallas, is a legendary prankster who ends up doing three in a row for fun and the principal Mr. Truman (who is the same principal in every school movie) and getting himself expelled. He doesn't know how to thank Truman enough. He spent his whole school career ditching class anyway. But before he can do anything, he has to get a new report card and fake some parent teacher conferences. He can't do that without his brain whiz Danny and some extra help from inside the school. Otherwise, he'll end up in Montana like his brother Ben after he forged a report card too.
It has a few elements similar to Ferris Bueller's Day Off, including his first line to the audience being "Incredible." and he doesn't want to spend the rest of his life at a desk. That's a reason why he loves being Expelled without his parents knowing. Think about it. He can spend every day doing whatever he wants without any homework and not having to pay for anything, yet, because he's still a teenager. I usually think being naughty is entertaining. Usually, it can inspire, or at the very least, make you smile for being entertained. I also like the main idea of this movie because it is the type of plot line where one thing goes wrong, the parents find out, and it's all done, and this contraption of a film has an awful lot. There's a scene involving a school play fiasco and usually it can be humiliating for the audience to endure, but Cameron Dallas' charm makes us laugh along with the audience.
The movie uses a turn of events that I think most movies avoid for it being too good to be true and trying to put a moral into it without realizing a movie that started out as naughty as it is should probably stay naughty and have a naughty moral. Because of the new actors coming in, I had a very fresh view on the whole thing. Not all the actors were good, especially the adult actors, but perhaps that's the point, giving off characters you don't care about to send in room for the big boys. There is a scene that involves blackmail, and in a way, it's the right thing to do and it's thought provoking imagining cheating your way to the top. It may someday actually be the right thing to do, like how in this movie, the quote, "I want to do the right thing but I'm not sure what that is" makes sense.
What drives this movie is Cameron Dallas as Felix. Felix is every student's daydream, the one who isn't scared to cause trouble and makes the best of the consequences, making the whole picture a terrific piece of blackmail propaganda.
