"I sit here and read these reviews one after one for this film. Some gave the most horrible rviews from people who went to school with one of the actors to the most amazing reviews who saw the movie's potential. I can't believe people saw this as horrible and cheesy writing. In my eyes and opinion, I saw this as great writing. The actors did an incredible job acting out their parts as as some has already said, young adults can relate to these kids characters. I myself have shown this movie to others and all can relate to it...all can see themselves in certain characters.

If you look at the emotions and concentrate of the mood of this film, you will like it for the most part. If you want any action in your films, this would not be the movie for you...a lot of talking going on to make you relate with each character.

I for one picked this movie up on the east coast at a local Big Lots store...didn't take long before this became my favorite film...I cried three times during my first view...I def. reccomend for anybody to pick this up with an open mind!!

"Social Misfits is a movie you can pretty much enjoy if you take the characters into account individually. I say this because, in general, the film's pretty stagnant. The writing was dull (even awful at times); some of the acting was questionable; the motives of the film are rather contradicting; the music was terrible and could have done better.

There are some good points, too. Some of the other acting, in particular by Damon, De La Fuente, Tann, and Huett, was wonderful. However, it is Charlie Talbert's short "moment" that truly saves this film. He plays Kyle the Klepto in this film and his performance, though short, is magical to watch. His starring role was in "Angus" (1995), of which he was terrific in, and he's just as terrific, charming, charismatic, and tender as he was in this film... perhaps better. This should be appreciated since Talbert is very rarely seen in any films.

The concept of having a smorgasbord of misfit kids shipped off by their parents and locked up in a room for two days is quite intriguing in itself. However, I'm not sure if the behavior the writer intended to show was really the appropriate one. There's no real closure; there's no real sense of ambiguity, either. It is implied out of little that these kids do in fact change. Even though their behavior is undeniably relevant for today, the writer fails to deliver it in a credible manner.

All-in-all, it's a decent film to rent. If you have any favorite star in this film, like Charlie for me, then go ahead and buy it. Otherwise, spare yourself."

It could have seemed like a great concoction. Stick a dozen maladjusted teenagers into a locked prison room. Allow each of them to have just one distinguishable character trait, have them hate one another mercilessly and then let them scream for 90 minutes about how they hate their parents and everything is their parent's fault and wah wah wah...

The setting is a empty building out in the desert known as Camp Resurrection and it's a place that parents "dump" their unwanted little brats for a weekend so they can be rehabilitated into nice little citizens. Yeah, right. These clichéd freaks each need about 2 years in intensive therapy, not a forced sit-in with people who already hate them.

In an effort to touch upon every available stereotype in the known universe, we are introduced to:

The nympho
The klepto
The pyro
The skinhead
The drug dealer
The gang-banger
The psychopath

And mixed in with this raving pack of young adults we of course have to have a mixed-up 9 year-old girl who thinks she can fly. (A box of popcorn to anyone who can predict where this particular plot thread is going...)
