Cecil Stephens (Sark Asadourian) has a bit of a problem: He has a lisp, and saying his name with a lisp sounds just ... odd. Now that might not sound like much, but Cecil is 9, and as his parents (Jason London, Jenna von O) have just separated he's sent to a new school - where saying one's own name with a lisp is social suicide. Thank God then that the first person Cecil makes friends with is nerdy Abby (Christa Beth Campbell), who encourages him to make up a new (lisp-secure) name - Michael Jordan, no less -, and she even helps Cecil to hack into the school computer to actually change his name (pseudo-)officially. This makes Cecil a popular guy, and the top-basketballer, too. But problems are a-brewing at the school as the principal (Jay Dee Walters) has lost a shitload at gambling and now is using the school budget to pay back his debts, which means he's slashing down on extra-curricular activities - including the school newspaper, which is Abby's big thing. So she, Cecil and Abby's fellow nerd Martha (Mary Alfred Thoma) start selling fake names to their fellow students - and thus, she school paper stays afloat, slowly revealing things about the principal he might not approve of all that much. Plus he doesn't like dealings going on in his school where he isn't involved - and he's not one to shy back from playing rough if it serves his own interests ...

 

As entertainment for pre-teens and early teens go, this is actually a pretty fun flick, as it doesn't try to drive a message home via sledgehammer or tries to sugarcoat things but obviously finds enjoyment in telling a fun story that at times crosses the boundaries of good taste and moves along with as much humour as possible ... in other words, a film that should go well with its target audience, but is likely to also sit well with more grown up audiences.
