I'm actually watching the movie right now as I'm typing.. This movie is absoultely wonderful!! Although, how come I don't see Charlie Talbert in any other big movies? Anyways... Being a 13 year old fat kid going into high school myself, this movie encourages me to try for what I really want to be, and not become what everyone else is... just to be myself..... you know what I say?? "Screw 'em!" haha If anyone hasnt seen this movie GET IT or if you have Comcast Digital Cable, its on Starz! OnDemand until August 8th or somethin like that.

I love this movie! This movie shows that there is no such thing as "normal" when it comes to people. This movie also shows the stupidity of people, and that looks aren't everything. Everybody has issues. The cruelty in this movie shows just how some people get treated and it's not right. When at the end of the movie, when Angus makes his speech, I was rooting for him. When he kissed a certain someone, I was having the lovey dovey factor. When a certain someone is gone, I cryed until I had to leave the room.

Angus is about the fat kid that every class has (maybe you were that fat kid, who knows?). Although Angus, played by Charlie Talbert, is huge, he is very sensitive and sweet. He is a scientific genius but wishes every day that he were someone else. It examines how to survive being the outcast in high school. Troy (Chris Owen) is his big-eared, red-headed friend who is also an outcast. Angus realizes that he must be brave and stand up to his oppressors. This film is both funny and touching. You will enjoy it!

this teen movie if so you might call it that way for having all those talented young actors otherwise you wouldnt have come to that conclusion is about a kid going thru different stages in his life like trying to understand the changes that his body is going thru while having a crush on the so desirable and unreachable cheerleader who also happens to be the girlfriend of his quote on quote "make my life miserable at school everyday " bulley. Angus is hilarious, sad, and has a satisfying ending in that the outcome is what you had hoped for throughout the entire movie. And I guess the effect comes from you relating to angus's character. So in conclusion this movie rocks!

Besides the fact that this movie is genuinely funny, I would recommend it for anyone with a pre-teen child. It encourages and reinforces that being popular isn't everything, and in fact, in the end, it's nothing. Angus is is fat, and his best friend is a goof-ball. But, he stands up for what is right, defends those he cares for and has the strength to follow his own path. And in the end, the girl realizes that, although he's no handsome football star, he is kind and intelligent and funny. Angus is an inspiration for those who have been slighted and made fun of because of our looks, or lack thereof. It teaches good values, loyalty to friends and perserverance. Good things for a kid to learn - I wish more adults could learn the same.

Angus is one of the best movies I have ever seen...especially since the startout scene is Owatonna High School's official homecoming game...Parts of Angus was shot in Owatonna Minnesota which I am proud to say that when it was shot I was a Senior in High School and an extra in the movie as well...soooo, not only did I get paid for being an extra in this movie, but, I got to skip a day of school and meet some of the actors that were in the movie...I met Arianna Richards...I saw James VanDerBeek...I met the guy who played Angus...and I met the guy who played Angus' friend....Obviously Angus is about a high school and a fat kid who falls in love with the most popular girl (Which happens to be a Cheerleader) in school...and her boyfriend is the bully who picks on Angus cause he's a fat kid.. And Angus and Melissa is voted to be King and Queen of the dance..During the dance Rick Sandford makes Angus' friend record a really embarassing thing and plays it infront of the entire school to embarass him...The movie proves just how vicious kids are to each other when they are in school and cause they aren't part of the popular crowd....I totally reccomend this movie...

What great movie this was. It always surprises me when the powers that be in Hollywood decide not to put any marketing dollars into a movie so that it won't be a smashing box office hit like this one. This is a fantastic movie that I liken to Fast Time at Ridgemont High or The Breakfast Club. Amazing that it's not available on DVD. Further proof that it's not the general public that decides what movies are hits but rather the marketing/advertising wheel that is Hollywood.

This is a great movie about growing up and fitting in (or not fitting in), blending comedy, heart, drama, and the spirit of the mid-1990's. The movie is about Angus Bethune (Charlie Talbert - why don't I ever see more of him?), a fat kid who's good at science and fair at football. Angus has a crush on a chearleader named Melissa LeFevre (Ariana Richards), who, sadly, is dating Angus's sworn enemy, Rick Sanford (James Van Der Beek, before Dawson's Creek). Angus hangs out with his little goofy friend, Troy Wedburg (Chris Owen). It is fall, and when its time to vote for the king and queen for the upcoming Winter Ball Dance, Rick, being the [jerk] that he is, rigs the vote so Angus wins and has to dance with Melissa, just to watch Angus humiliate himself. But then Angus also has to work on a project for another school for science. Which one will he pick? You'll have to see it to find out. This is a great movie that should be seen by everyone.
Also, to whom it may concern, PLEASE RELEASE THIS MOVIE ON DVD!!! Thank you.
