FULL SYNOPSIS

Eva Longoria Parker, Rob Corddry, and Jason Biggs star in first-time writer/director Mark Lafferty's satirical look at the American school system as seen from the perspective of a burnt-out elementary school vice principal on the verge of a nervous breakdown. When it comes to receiving a proper education, Geraldine Ferraro Elementary is the last place a parent would want to send their child; the teachers generally hover somewhere between drunk and psychotic (though frequently a bit of both), the children have all been left behind. Meanwhile, harried Vice Principal Tom Willoman (Biggs) has little choice but to stand aside and watch as both his life and career slowly circle the drain. Enter Rebecca Seabrook (Longoria Parker) -- the smoking-hot district inspector assigned the thankless task of shutting down Geraldine Ferraro Elementary once and for all. Taking note of the reckless corruption displayed by morally handicapped Principal Billings (Corddry), Rebecca schemes with Vice Principal Willoman to take back the classrooms and give the kids a fair shot at getting a proper education. But ever since he suffered an undisclosed tragedy, Vice Principal Willoman has been rendered a total milquetoast. Can Willoman summon the fortitude needed to help Rebecca whip Geraldine Ferraro Elementary back into shape, or has the damage inflicted during the embarrassing Billings administration already locked the school into an irreversible nosedive of epic buffoonery? Kyle Gass, Monica Potter, and Ed Helms co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
