Carson Phillips is an unhappy teenager with big dreams. His dream is to get out of the town he was born in, where he lives with his bossy mother, and to attend Northwestern University. He is also the head of writer's club and the school's newspaper, where no other students want to join. In order to have an outstanding college application, Carson begins to blackmail each of the popular student to write for the local newspaper. Carson's plans seems to be working until he is struck by lightning.
Best part of story, including ending: I find the movie dissatisfying because the story is not fully develop and suffers from major plot holes.

Best scene in story: The scene where Carson's mother receives the news about her son's lightning accident.

Opinion about the main character: I dislike the character because he is full of himself. There is no redemption for Carson Phillips.
