Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on January 3rd, 2016. The movie is based on the series of the same name by legendary novelist James Patterson. When asked by The Guardian why he has started writing children’s books… “When my son, Jack, was eight, he wasn’t excited about reading. Neither were many of his friends at school. I was thinking, well wait a minute here – if the son of an author doesn’t enjoy books, what’s going on with our kids in general? Is this a problem we have to tackle? And of course, we quickly realized that was a resounding YES.”. And so the Middle School book series, and many others, was born.
Starring: Griffin Gluck, Thomas Barbusca, Lauren Graham, Rob Riggle, Adam Pally
Synopsis: MIDDLE SCHOOL: The Worst Years of My Life chronicles the trials and triumphs of Rafe Khatchadorian, as he uses his wits to battle bullies, hormones and the tyrannical, test-obsessed Principal Dwight. Rafe has an epic imagination…and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to an oppressive, rule-crazy middle school. Drowning in do’s and don’ts, Rafe and his scheming best friend Leo hatch a plan to break every rule in the school’s Code of Conduct. It’s Ferris Bueller meets Home Alone as their battle with Principal Dwight explodes into chaos both real and imagined. But Dwight displays his own fiendish creativity, striking back at the rulebreakers. Meanwhile, Rafe struggles to hide his misbehavior from Jeanne, the straight-A, overachieving girl of his dreams, and at home, his mother’s boyfriend — a moochy, jack-of-no-trades named Bear — threatens to become his stepfather. Rafe’s revolution leaps from the page to the screen in this ambitious live-action/animated comedy based on the New York Times bestseller “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life” by legendary novelist James Patterson.
