Rushmore ★★★★½

(The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

Wow ... Max can be a delusional little prick that spreads himself out way too thin, but damn do I admire his determination.

"Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it."

You know you have a solid story when the 3rd act slump for the main character actually feels warranted, instead of being just another bullshit forced conflict that most movies feel they need to have. I am starting to have nightmares that my kids are going to end up being like Herman Blume's two asshole sons.

This is my fourth time seeing this, and I just figured out Dirk Calloway was played by the same kid who was in 'Dennis the Menace'.

"Dear Max, I am sorry to say that I have secretly found out that Mr. Blume is having an affair with Miss Cross. My first suspicions came when I saw them Frenching in front of our house. And then I knew for sure when they went skinny dipping in Mr. Blume's swimming pool, giving each other handjobs while you were taking a nap on the front porch."
