Angus is fat, dorky and smart, a kid with an uncool pal and a crush on a cheerleader. Angus is funny, rowdy and triumphant, a totally cool movie with a dead-on eye and ear for the hilarious, heartbreaking rite of passage called high school. A great cast (including Academy Award® winners* George C. Scott and Kathy Bates as Angus's oddball family) sparks this story about what happens when Angus is named King of the Winter Ball as a prank - and how he turns humiliation into victory. Angus, Roger Ebert wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times, "delivers a rousing 'up yours' to all the snotty high school golden boys [and] a climax that I, for one, found wholly the equal of anything in Rocky."

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For a movie that extols the virtues of being different, Angus is a frustratingly ordinary story of a high-school underdog: a chow hound in puppy love.
Screw 'em Angus!
What a great movie! I have love this movie since I was in high school. If you haven't seen it, it's well worth the 4.99 buy!
