Terri is a teenager who attends high school wearing pajamas, most of the time late on class, takes care for his uncle and struggles to which type of students in his school he belongs- the good-hearted kids or the bad ones. *** I honestly did not get the full meaning of the film. But I must say that the film shows truthfulness about a marginalized teenager. Though, I often questioned the character of Mr. Fitzgerald, Reily's acting was well enough for me. I love some shots of the film, and yeah, Terri was really cute! HAHAHA

Terri was an Ok movie but I don't think it was anything great or special.It just seemed average & at times I kinda found it to be boring.I especially hated the ending because It just leaves you hanging.I notice alot of these type of artsy films do that & I HATE it! I think the best thing about Terri wasn't John C. Reilly like I heard but Bridger Zadina as Chad.He will truly creep you out

Terri ist klug, freundlich und instinktiv auch schon weise, dadurch tut es umso mehr weh, wenn er gedemütigt wird. Seine Entscheidung, Pyjama in der Schule zu tragen, dürfte im späteren Leben sogar eine hippe Idee sein! Terri hat Charakter. Wir erleben mit ihm zwei oder drei Wochen seines Lebens, in denen er einige wichtige Hürden nimmt. Seine Eltern kommen im Film nicht vor. Terri lebt zusammen mit seinem Onkel James (Creed Bratton), inmitten von dessen …

Terri, a real feel-good movie!

I came across this movie by accident. The plot seemed a little ordinary, just another 'been there done that' movie about a troubled mind. In the end it were John C. Reilly and the Sundance nomination that convinced me to watch it. At first glance the plot doesn't seem exciting or renewing. In many ways it isn't and it are other aspects that make this a great movie.

Terri (Jacob Wysocki) is the troubled mind in this movie. On the outside he has everything to be bullied. He's overweight, socially awkward and all in all just a loner. But the first great thing in this movie is the fact that it's not about bullying. There's not one moment where Terri is being bullied. He gets laughed at sometimes, but no more than any other high school kid. The movie focuses more on the actual (few) …
