Geek Charming

Dylan Schoenfield is the pink princess of the upscale Los Angeles Woodlands Academy. She has the coolest boyfriend, the most popular friends, and a brand-new it bag that everyone covets. But when she accidentally tosses her Serge Sanchez bag into a fountain, this princess comes face-to-face with her own personal frog, self-professed film geek Josh Rosen.

In return for rescuing Dylan's bag, Josh convinces Dylan to let him film her for his documentary on high school popularity. Reluctantly, Dylan lets F-list Josh into her A-list world, and is shocked to realize that sometimes nerds can be pretty cool.

But when Dylan's so-called prince charming of a boyfriend dumps her flat, her life and her social status comes to a crashing halt. Can Dylan win the Woodlands Academy Fall Formal Blossom Queen crown? Can Josh win the Woodlands Academy 10th Annual Film Festival? Can Dylan, with Josh's help, pull the pieces together to create her own happily-ever-after?

Geek Charming is an original Disney channel movie based off the book written by Robin Palmer.

Here, in the beginning, we watch Dylan (the main girl) day dream about winning Blossom Queen while she's standing in front of the sign up table. Blossom Queen is the number one thing that's on her mind....though, it's not all that's up there. You'll see that as the movie goes on.

Now, while she's walking in the cafeteria talking to her "supposedly" best friends about the Blossom Queen contest she happens to end up chest full of recycled pasta thanks to Josh, the main boy......and the scene was kind of funny. Okay, so now is the time we switch point of views, which makes that scene funny, anyways.....this is when we first meet Josh and his friends, whom by the way are film geeks not nerds (thank you very much). They are funny and have quirks that can scare people. Like, one likes to try (and when I mean try, that's pretty much it) to invent things but seems to go horribly, horribly wrong and then, the only girl in the group, has a major crush on him, Josh, which you see too in the beginning. I love that scene by the way.

So, there's the characters, now lets talk when they're both in the screen. I think this one scene is probably the most funniest one in the whole movie. It's in the mall and Josh just gets off work just in time to watch Dylan, herself, accidently throw her purse into the water fountain. Which he saves, by the way. But how he saves it, is totally ridiculous, though funny, I just couldn't stop laughing.

This little stunt creates a chain reaction, first off with him asking Dylan to star in his movie (it's not hers no matter how many times she says it). And along the way they start to get to know each other but before the happy times all Josh sees her is a Diva......

"D I V A, that spells diva" 

Which I can't blame him. But just like what his moms says, "Sometimes the way people act, they're really just trying to cover up something more."

Or something like that.

I love, love, love Josh's mom. Very funny. Like, she can cook, but most of the time not. To the point were they know the Pizza guys name (the one that takes the orders over the phone)......hilarious. Also the part in the kitchen, (one of my favorite scenes, very cute) the two, Dylan & Josh, started a war and all she does is get out of the way and films it. Very cute and I couldn't stop smiling.

I loved the two main characters, they complete each other, and way better than Dylans current boyfriend ever did....though of course Dylan doesn't see that.

Over all, it's a cute film that has great messeges to share (like most Disney channel movies) and perfect for all ages. It shows that not all guys have to be strong, musclely, and popular to be hot. Personally I think I like the geeks better, for some reason they seem sweeter, definitely in films and books. 

This film will have your heart flutter with romance, be sad when they're sad, and smile when not all happily ever afters are for the populars.
