Chris Karas (Matt Angel) leads a double life. A shy, academically talented high schooler, he's secretly one of the Pranksters, a group of brilliant student practical jokers. But conflict arises when his ambition conflicts with the goals of the group. His fellow Pranksters don't approve of his academic goals, while his old-world Greek father doesn't understand his desire to attend college. Meanwhile, he's also engaged in a budding romance.

The one thing that impressed me the most about this John Hughes like comedy was it's cast. The film's talented young cast features, Maiara Walsh (Desperate Housewifes, Corey in the House), Devon Werkheiser (Ned Declassified), and Robert Adamson (Lincoln Heights), plus exceptional newcomers, Matt Angel, and Veronica Sixtos And Madison Riley. The adults actors, Kurt Fuller, Ken Davitian, and Michaela Watkins are all fantastic and very funny as well. The pranks are very campy in style but there is also a few good messages given out as well like lessons about peer pressure and being true to yourself. Director, Tony Vidal has made a comedy that Teens are sure to gobble up but the film will also be enjoyed by adults who remember their days back in school and pulling some of the same pranks back then as while as seeing the messages the film sends out.
