As the principal strikes back, Rafe’s world, at home and at school, explodes into hilarious chaos (both real and imagined) in this laugh-filled family comedy based on James Patterson’s best-selling book series.

My son is a huge fan of the James Patterson's bestselling book series - Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, Rafe Rules and more.   So of course he was super excited for this movie to come out.    There are a few changes from the book to the movie, but according to my mini book nerd the changes work for the film!
 
Rafe has a crazy imagination and a slight problem with authority.   He has been kicked out of numerous school and is at his last option a rule-crazy middle school. Rafe and his best friend Leo decided to defy authority and break all the rules at this crazy school.   Rafe does everything anonymously but when his friends and favorite teacher take the brunt of principals wrath,  he has to do what is best for everyone and take the blame.  Chaos explodes at school and at home in this laugh out loud comedy.   Kids will love it due to all the comedy, the cool animations that come to life as well as the story-line. I loved the movie too...I had no idea about the twist towards the end and I must admit that I did get teary eyed.   Even though Rafe broke the rules, as a parent I appreciated that he owned his mistakes and did the right thing in the end.  This is a great movie for family night and I can see our house watching it again and again!
