Charlie Bartlett's Message: Be Yourself

Anton Yelchin stars as Charlie Bartlett. Does the teen comedy appeal to teens? (MGM)


Charlie Bartlett was a really great film. It was very interesting and funny to watch. I liked how it was about fitting in and trying to be popular. For some kids that's what high school is all about. Everybody wants to be the captain of the football team or the head cheerleader or geting the part in the big school play or just trying to fit in anywhere. But what I think -- and what the movie was trying to say -- was that you just have to be yourself and accept who you are.

I think the movie did a good job showing how teens really are today because I think it's true that some teens will do anything to try to fit in.
