Storyline Heading
An optimist, a truth-teller and a fearless schemer, when Charlie slyly positions himself as his new school's resident "psychiatrist," dishing out both honest advice and powerful prescriptions, he has no idea the ways in which he will transform his classmates, the school principal and the potential of his own life.

.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - Although the film centers around high school kids, this is a film pitched mostly to an adult audience, not to mention this is more of a dark comedy-drama than the advertising suggests. Language and drug content make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Despite a maddeningly inconsistent tone, Charlie Bartlett takes viewers back into the classrooms and hallways of high school as it follows the improbable climb of one student from outcast to icon, and observes the consequences of his popularity.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average Like many of John Hughes' high school movies, it presents a fantasy of tolerance and camaraderie about kids from different social circles -- nerds, jocks, hoods, cheerleaders, drama clubbers -- coming together to fight adult authoritarianism.

USA Today Full Review
Good Charlie Bartlett is a refreshingly entertaining character study that refuses to dumb down its youthful cast or bury their concerns in service of a catchy soundtrack.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 22 moviegoers:The lack of promotion resulted in very low attendance for this movie. Looking at the reviews, it appears most truly enjoyed "Charlie Bartlett." I know my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Even though this movie is targeted at teen and twentysomething's, we are far past those age groups and we enjoyed "Charlie Bartlett" very much. Recommended.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Charlie Bartlett (Anton Yelchin) has been kicked out of every private school he ever attended. And now that he's moved on to public school, he's simply getting pummeled. But when Charlie discovers that the kids who surround him - the outcast and the popular alike - are secretly in desperate need, his entrepreneurial spirit takes over.

Hanging up his shingle in the Boys' restroom, Charlie becomes an underground, not to mention under-aged, shrink who listens to the private confessions of his schoolmates, and makes the imprudent decision to hand out the pills he's proffered from his own psychiatric sessions. Meanwhile, at home, Charlie keeps charming his way out of an inevitable confrontation with his adoring but utterly overwhelmed mother Marilyn (Hope Davis.)

Then, Charlie Bartlett makes his big mistake: falling in love with the beautiful and bold daughter (Kat Dennings) of the school's increasingly disenchanted Principal (Robert Downey, Jr.), who is hot on his trail. As Charlie Bartlett's world and fledgling psychiatric practice unravel, he begins to discover there's a whole lot more to making a difference than handing out pills.
