Ryan Reynolds (Blade: Trinity, The Amityville Horror, National Lampoon's Van Wilder) lights up the screen as the charismatic Mr. D, a teacher whose lessons extend far beyond the classroom in this heart-warming tale of learning to appreciate every moment we're given.
At Fallbrook Middle School, a Warner has won the coveted Student-Elected Teacher of the Year award 43 years in a row. Unfortunately, it was "Stormin" Norman Warner each time, and now that he's passed away, the burden of maintaining the family legacy falls to Matt Warner (David Paymer - Mr Saturday Night, Quiz Show) who's always lived in his famous father's shadow.
Determined to keep the Warner tradition alive, Matt re-focuses all his efforts on winning that award, but once again, there's someone in his way - his father's replacement Mr. D'Angelo. Young, funny, and instantly popular with the kids - everything Matt is not - Mr. D quickly wins over the entire student body, and the faculty. Within no time at all, Mr D's unconventional teaching methods and ability to connect with the children makes him the easy front runner for Teacher of the Year.
Matt meanwhile, becomes so obsessed with discrediting Mr. D and winning the award that he starts forgetting what it means to be an educator. Desperate to find something wrong with the seemingly perfect teacher, Matt follows him around town.
Matt does eventually find out that Mr. D has a secret, but it's not what he expected... School of life is a touching story about the power of education, but more importantly, the power of the human spirit.
