High School. Four of the most important years of your life. But it isn't always dances and keg parties and sucking face in your parents' mini-van. Sometimes it's ugly and hard and complicated. As complicated as a conspiracy to overthrow the presidentÖ
Thereís something rotten at St. Donovanís High and sophomore newspaper reporter Bobby Funke (Reece Daniel Thompson) is on it like pink rubber bands on your little sisterís braces. When senior hottie Francesca Fachini (Mischa Barton) solicits Funkeís help tracking down a set of stolen SATs, Funke uncovers a story dirtier than the lunch ladyís moustache. After he fingers the school president (figuratively) for the crime, Funke becomes one of the most popular kids at St. Donovan's High. No longer known simply as the freshman who was once tied to a giant snowman penis, Funke wins the respect of everyone from the Desert-Storm-hero-turned-educator Principal Kirkpatrick (Bruce Willis) to the kid that farts on him in Spanish class. When Francesca takes Funke to homecoming, even the In-School Suspension delinquents turn nice and offer guidance on how to keep his boner in check during slow dances.
But high schoolís not always what it seems. As Funkeís popularity grows so do his suspicions. Did the president really steal the SATs? Or is Funke just a pawn in a conspiracy as complicated as adolescence itself? Determined to find the truth, Funke digs deeper and unearths the sordid underbelly of St. Donovanís. Student council members, college bookies, public school brats, everyone seems to play a part. Armed only with a learnerís permit and the spirit of Woodward and Bernstein, Funke must crack the case before it cracks him.
