We recently had the chance to pop along to see the movie Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.
The premise of this movie is an imaginative quiet teenager Rafe Katchadorian who is tired of his middle school’s obsession with the rules at the expense of any and all creativity. Desperate to shake things up, Rafe and his best friends have come up with a plan: break every single rule in the school and let the students run wild.
There is move to this movie than what meets the eye at first glance which I liked but I don’t want to ruin it for you.
Hubby and I went along with our 9 and 6-year-old daughters and they both enjoyed it. Apart from one comment about boobs being drawn in a notebook I didn’t think there was any real inappropriate content for kids.
I was worried that it might give my girls some ideas that breaking the rules was ok and funny however both hubby and I felt like the movie didn’t play out in a way that would suggest to them that being naughty was funny and ok.
The pranks were also quite extreme and elaborate so not really even possible for a child to pull off in reality.
This is definitely a movie for mid to upper primary school aged children and older.
It is based on a children’s book by the bestselling author James Patterson.
