Charlie Bartlett is a nice movie, nothing spectacular but it fulfilled my expectations very well. It is a very well written comedy with the excellent amount of drama. It is funny but not because its full of jokes or gags, the humor of this film is a consequence of the cases in it. The plot about a wealthy teen (Yelchin) goes to a fresh public high school and ingratiates himself into its social fabric by using his charm to become the school's resident "psychiatrist" is good, its like a glimpse of how teenagers live nowadays. The cast composed entirely by young actors with the exception of Downey Jr. is nice and they acted well. Robert Downey was good, Anton Yelchin in the role of Charlie, his performance was great. He was a perfect complement for Downey Jr. The rest of the cast like Kat Dennings and Hope Davis were a nice help for the movie. In conclusion, this is an entertaining film that is worthy just to watch Downey Jr. and Yelchin acting together.
Charlie Bartlett is a comedy with a message. Some may tell that's an oxymoron. But Jon Poll, directing from a Gustin Nash script, takes on the task and turns in a hybrid of a movie that is so incredibly engaging you'll wonder why several filmmakers take on such a challenge. The audience was so loud and boisterous at the Globe Premiere screening at the Tribeca Movie Festival that it sent the laugh meter off the scale.Anton Yelchin is Charlie Bartlett, a child born with a silver spoon in his mouth and an enterprising, albeit mischievous, brain. His antics receive him kicked out of one personal school after another. But his intelligent and earnest sincerity is bound to hit the goal sooner or soon and it does when he is thrown to the public school wolves. The scheme he invents to endear himself to the student body is nothing short of genius, and his performance fits the bill.Yelchin has made a name for himself testing the smart, sensitive, and innocent tortured kid. Here he gets the possibility to stretch his acting chops in a fully various direction. He's confident and anything but vulnerable. The wide range of emotions and the talents he shows here are unsurpassed. He sings, he dances, he plays piano, he does physical comedy and has war scenes and romantic scenes and just about everything that should be thrown at him. And he looks to be so thoroughly enjoying it, which comes across on screen and proves to be so central to the film. After all, to play a movie one gotta identify somewhat with the protagonist, or at least like him, and Anton does that better than many actors twice his age.Hope Davis is a riot as his not-quite-all-there mother. It's simple to see the source of Charlie's quirkiness. The relationship between mother and son is playful and mischievous, the type of "mom as greatest friend" scenario which often effects in tragedy. Here it's played just for laughs, and it works. She is everymom - with a twist of lemon.Tyler Hilton is perfectly cast as the bully who we know from the begin is destined to soften up somewhere along the way. That's what film bullies do. But he brings an especially charming quality to the role which plays perfectly vs Charlie's leanings toward the dark side. It's a delicate balance but Yelchin and Hilton create it work.Robert Downey Jr. is ironically cast as the substance-addled principal who also happens to be the father of Charlie's love interest. One has to wonder whether Principal Gardner or Downey is speaking in some of the more poignant scenes about alcohol and drugs. It's chilling. Perhaps for that reason alone he is a standout here.Kat Dennings plays the woman who is out to victory Charlie's heart. The dynamic with Downey and Yelchin is a natural source of drama. This is the film's most heartfelt storyline, and Dennings is admirably up to the task.At times it all feels so real, and it's no wonder -- writer Gustin Nash now continued to write scenes and dialogue specifically for those actors after the movie got underway and it shows.Charlie Bartlett has the look and feel of a studio film, which could support it search an audience. The topics matter demands an R rating, if only for its content. But it's a movie children need to see. The message is squarely aimed at teens, even younger ones, and parents need to take heed. In the guise of a comedy, a nice one at that, Charlie Bartlett has something meaningful to tell about the excuses we test to justify our behavior and the chemical coping ways so many of us cling to. And it's d*mn funny.
If you're pining for a modern John Hughes kind teen comedy (such as Breakfast Club or Ferris Bueller's Day Off), then Charlie Bartlett would certainly fit the bill. It's like an anti-American Pie. The teens are not obsessed with sex, it has heart and even a several dramatic elements. It's not as funny as American Pie kind films but that's not the point. Charlie Bartlett is basically a good-hearted very smart rich child expelled from all his previous personal schools who wants to be famous and becomes a type of psychiatrist for his fellow classmates in a "normal" public high school.The actor portraying him did a remarkable job showing his eccentricities while keeping him likable and sweet despite his less than legal actions. I'm not quite sure how likely such a hero would be in true life but he's certainly interesting. I also enjoyed the another teens portrayed (most being two-dimensional instead of one-dimensional caricatures) and want there had been more washroom confessionals. Robert Downey Jr is once again unbelievable as a loving father and tormented principal who's not fully "evil" as in most films of this type. I liked the understated uncomplicated romantic aspect and it type of made me want for first love again although I've seen this done better in few another movies. Overall, it's a charming teen movie, not overtly real-life melodramatic, nor overtly over-the-top ridiculous, as we rarely see in this cynical 21st century. It's a nice rental and a decent buy if you like high school dramatic comedies.Rating: 7 out of 10
