Moon Pie



A romantic comedy starring Mad TV’s Michael McDonald and Stephanie Weir as an elementary school principal and third grade teacher who, despite their troubles, find romance in the unlikeliest of places. Principal Henderson Sucks–it says so on the bathroom wall–and he believes it until his life is turned upside down by a bi-polar 3rd grade teacher and his 7 year old son’s ruthless pursuit of the prettiest girl in the school.

Dove Review

This is a strange comedy that is hard to follow at times. This story is about a principal that has a boring life, disrespectful wife, and students that have no respect for him. Then there is the teacher that is bipolar and on medication that thinks she is a loser. I guess if you like Mad TV you might like this type of movie, but with its content of language, sexual portrayals and attitudes this DVD cannot receive our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal as a family friendly film.
