Plot: A listless and alienated teenager decides to help his new friend win the class presidency in their small western high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again?  Yes.

OMG it's been way too long since I saw this.  I'm howling in the first few minutes.  The characters (and their actors) are all hilarious.  It's cute and funny as shit and it stays that way until the end.   It's the kind of oddball picture that you'll either love it or hate.  Fun soundtrack, too.  The Blu-ray looks fantastic, especially the color-popping opening credits.
