About the Movie

RUSHMORE is the story of a gifted, rebellious teenager named Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), a 10th grader at elite Rushmore Academy. Editor of the school newspaper, captain or president of innumerable clubs and societies, Max is also one of the worst students in the school, and the threat of expulsion hangs permanently over his head. Max's world is rocked when he falls for elegant 1st grade teacher Miss Cross (Olivia Williams) and he plans to erect an aquarium in her honor -- then finds himself competing for her affections with his friend, steel tycoon Mr. Blume (Bill Murray), the wealthy father of two of his classmates.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The director treats eccentricity with compassionate respect: no winking, no nudges to even like the boy. The filmmaking, meanwhile, is beautifully disciplined. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 8, 2010

Fresh: You also have to admire the creepy arrogance of Schwartzman's performance. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A wickedly funny high school comedy for most of its running time, Rushmore is a bracingly fresh and original outing. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Schwartzman is cautious but stubbornly optimistic, while Murray is possessed by the mania of near-despair... They make the best and most disconcerting odd couple that American movies have produced in a long while. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Mar 17, 2014

This movie is great! I remember when it came out I watched this over and over again. Jason Schwartzman is hilariously dry and Bill Murray is even better. The entire movie is great from beginning to end and the soundtrack is great too. Must see!

I want to buy not rent!!!!

I've been waiting patiently for this film to be featured on iTunes only to be disappointed by the fact that you can ONLY rent it?! Epic fail!


I did not get this movie. Not even slightly humorous or entertaining. It was painful to sit through.
