Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Class Act

Duncan Pinderhughes is a great high school student who excels with his academics and what most will call a "model student". Always in his best good behavior, he is the type of kid that every teacher can dream having in his or her class. On the flip side of it, there is Blade Brown. A juvenile deliquent who finds himself always ending up in trouble and constantly receiving poor mars in his grades.

The one thing these two have in common is obstacles that need to be overcome before reaching to their goals. Good grades might come easy for Duncan but for the life of him, he just can't do well in PE class! If he fails the activity; which is by the way is pretty easy for most students, he will fail and will not be able to attend college. As for Blade, life will be even more tougher than he imagined because his parole officer tells him that he has a big decison to make, get good marks and graduate out of high school or fail and go to jail.

Things get out of place as Duncan and Blade indentity are switched by miscateogrize school records and pictures in the principal's office. After finding out about the mixup they pretend one is the other so they can each do well in their respective goals. Now Duncan is Blade, a so-called bad boy that is flunking miserably in his courses and hanging out with all the baddest troublemakers in the school, but he learns to do more well in gym. But Blade, the real bad boy is placed in the gifted classrooms. Each guy dress according to their new identity and learning how to act like the other. Beside the teens new look and behaviors, they both fall in love with girls opposite of their character, Ducan with the wild girl and Blade with a more intelligent one. Also Duncan's parents are beginning to worry about their son's strange behavior and his spending time with Blade.
