Movie Night – Middle School
July 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life is a 2016 American live-action/animated family comedy film directed by Steve Carr and written by Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer and Kara Holden, based on the 2011 novel of the same name by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts.
Transfer student Rafael “Rafe” Khatchadorian lives in a middle-class home with his mother Jules, his rebellious younger sister Georgia, and Jules’s lazy, child-hating boyfriend (later fiancé) Carl, who goes by the nickname Bear. Rafe has an overactive imagination and is very passionate about his artistic talent. Rafe cannot wait to start his first day at Hills Village Middle School, but it does not go as he hopes when he finds out that Principal Ken Dwight and Vice-Principal Ida Stricker, are very cruel and much worse than the bullies. After Dwight destroys Rafe’s sketchbook, Rafe and his imaginary friend Leo (his late younger brother who died from cancer) come up with an idea to start a massive “insurrection” to go up against Principal Dwight and Stricker, breaking every rule in the rule book. They unleash several pranks on Principal Dwight, Stricker, and the school staff. He refers to this plan as “Operation Rules Aren’t For Everyone,” or R.A.F.E.
