Music, Movies & TV series are three of my interests. Reviews, facts about artists, fans and much other in my articles!

A boy expelled from his school because of his continuous jokes is the protagonist of this nice movie.

A Terrible Student

Expelled is an American movie released in 2014 and featuring Cameron Dallas, who plays the part of Felix, a prankster who doesn't like going to school and who spends all his time by organizing jokes against his schoolmates. One day, after having hacked a vending machine, the headmaster asks Felix to come to his office, in order to expel him (he had already been suspended many times in the past).

After having been expelled, Felix starts to feel happy because he will no longer have to attend boring school lessons. However, he will need to prepare himself to a big challenge: hiding the truth to his parents. So he starts to convince a girl to print a fake school report card, but she refuses and so he gets his true low marks sent to his post office box. When his parents ask him about his report card, he invents some excuses, in order to get time. Nextly, with the help of his best friend Danny, he tries to get into the school and hack computers in order to change his grades. They are both discovered by the headmaster, and Felix gets arrested by the police. He will not stay in jail for much time, because his best friend comes to bring him back, pretending to be his father.

Nextly, Danny is finally able to get a report card full of "A" for Felix: since the boy's parents started to be suspicious, he shows them his fake report card in time, making them completely thrilled. But unfortunately there is another problem for the guy: his mother booked a meeting with one of his teachers. Danny's plan to prevent the teacher coming at school fails, and so Felix's mother starts to discover something is wrong and punishes his son, awaiting to speak with the headmaster (she suspects the report card is fake).

Most parents would disown you if you have an F on your report card. But seven F's? That's a death sentence

A boy who does not study and whose only interest is doing pranks to his schoolmates, who becomes an excellent student: the movie shows the complete Felix's evolution.

A Ludopatic School Headmaster

The only way to escape for Felix comes back when, by spying the headmaster, Danny discovers he plays Blackjack with school's money, and he gets a screen recording on his hard drive. After some risky situations in which the man destroys the hard drive, Danny achieves to bring with him the second copy of the recording, stored on a laptop. So Felix is able to blackmail the school's headmaster: being re-admitted at school and getting his fake report card validated, in order for the headmaster to not be reported to police because of his Blackjack matches. When Felix's mother comes to the headmaster's office, she gets assured her son is a brilliant student: she remains astonished, as she was completely sure the report card was fake.

The movie ends with Felix, who starts going to school again, but with a different attitude to his work: now he gets good marks by studying, without doing any other pranks.

Difficult, yes. Impossible... probably yes but that's never stopped us before.

A Boy Wins Against a School Headmaster

This movie is very nice and you will definitely laugh at every moment. Felix seems to be a brilliant guy, very expert at making jokes and escaping from the problems. But he is also destined to grow up and become a new brilliant student at school. From the other side, you can see the headmaster of a school, who pretends to teach a student how to behave correctly and who punishes him, despite he is the first person to be engaged in an illegal activity, like stealing school's money in order to play by chance online (even so much serious and unjustifiable than a boy who only does pranks at school and who does not study). A happy comedy you will like to view, even more than one time.

Many people did crazy things and pranks when they were teens. Instead a school headmaster who plays Blackjack with public money is unjustifiable
