“People like you are the reason people like me need medication.” ~Tagline from the movie Charlie Bartlett
Andie and I watched this movie a couple days ago and really liked it. Smart, funny, dark humor. Jam packed with lovable characters.
The kids at Western Summit High have “issues,” and newcomer Charlie Bartlett is coming to their rescue. With a briefcase full of prescription pills and a head full of pop psychology, this rebel with a cause brings hilarious help to the student body and unending grief to their neurotic principal, Mr. Gardner (Robert Downey, Jr.). Suddenly, Charlie is the hottest man on campus and he’s even caught the eye of Gardner’s sultry daughter. An outrageous send-up of today’s Prozac generation, Charlie Bartlett has your prescription for laugh-out-loud insanity!
