It's a riotous comedy that follows former child actor, David Gold, as he makes one bad decision after another. Recently unemployed and with nothing left to lose, he fakes his resume and gets a job as a high school guidance counselor. Quickly winning over the students with his bad behavior, David forms a friendship with Jabrielle, a teenage outcast and they hit the road as an unlikely pair of outlaws on the run.

Finally a guidance counselor that does it right! No really, I found this film mildly funny. It was certainly far from perfect but not vomit inducing. What they were incorrect on with the teenagers was not none had cell phones! There were no "phone zombies".

We absolutely loved it! Goofy, irreverent, guileless Canadian humour about a guy really trying to get his act together.
P.S. to Parentfx: it's fiction. It's comedy. It's terrific low-budget film-making!

I must admit this is one poor portrayal of how guidance counselors would act in the educational system. This movie is about a drunk person, almost homeless faking his way into getting a job, in a school with no credentials.
Once he gets hired, he starts by giving vodka to students and trading alcohol for weed. Unbelievable, how he was able to get a job with no ID or security checks! This movie has bad acting and a very poor movie plot. Definitely...a low budget movie.

An entertaining & off-beat comedy about a former child actor turned (faux) high school guidance counselor. One of the most unique Canadian movies I have seen in a long time.
