This movie is entertaining enough and has some really great cinematography, especially in the Trenton scenes, which are photographed beautifully. But the story and the characters are a lot like every other pseudo-indie movie you've ever seen, where everything is just a little quirky and offbeat, but nothing is seriously challenging or artistically dangerous.

A realistic look at High-school students. Hal Hefner (Reece Thompson) has a stutter and was invited by the star of the Plainsboro High School debate team Ginny (Anna Kendrick). Performances especially Kendrick, were solid. Soundtrack was interesting but its strength is the screenplay. One of the best lines: Ben - " Life is nothing but repetition, the same thing over and over....The fights you fight today are the fights you fight until you die." and Hal Hefner - "You know, someday you'll find love and then everything will be different." Rocket Science is sometimes dark, lacks humor, but it's point about adolescent angst, individuality, sex and mystery of love.

I didn't expect this movie to be any good. I actually rented it thinking it was Bottle Rocket, and it turned out to be really really good. If you did debate tournaments in high school you will find this especially hilarious. If you didn't, who knows. I did so I can say that.

Rocket Science

Rocket Science is about an underclassman who joins debate club after a pretentious and easy-to-hate girl named Ginny claims to see his potential, despite his speech impediment. Rocket Science is far better than I expected.

There is some typical quirky claptrap horse shit I would laugh at if I thought mildly ridiculous things weren't commonplace, but I am at least thankful this isnít written by Diablo Cody. The writing feels genuine; genuine for Jersey, genuine for American kids in general. Several moments and characters are over-the-top, but why make a movie if youíre not going over the top? The least believable scenes are also the shortest. If the story is auto-fiction, and I have a feeling it might be in the cards, I would guess the unbelievable moments arenít far from the truth.

A Different Awkward Small Comedy

This is a greatly uneven film but somehow it all works because adolescence is unpredictable. Reece Thompson did a great job portraying a heartbroken kid in search for his identity who also happens to stutter when he speaks (and he wishes to debate!). Even though he was full of angst, he wasn't emo (or annoying); he managed to stay charming and I did root for him from beginning to end. I must also commend Nicholas D'Agosto for picking up the story's pace whenever he appears on screen. The story turned somewhat slow deep into the story and he made it come to life. If one enjoys awkward or dry humour, this is the movie to watch. The only minor complaint I have is that I wish there were more debate scenes because I sensed a fire whenever characters start talking really fast. It's a small film...
