Former Prada model and Road Trip co-star D.J. Qualls makes a bid for leading man status in this nerd-makeover comedy. Qualls stars as Dizzy, a dorky but delinquent high school student who's determined to get expelled from his hellish high school — but ends up landing in jail instead. There he meets the intimidating, street-smart Luther (Eddie Griffin), himself a former geek, who takes Dizzy under his wing to teach him the art of being cool. Soon Luther and his pals have broken Dizzy of his meek, maladroit ways, and Dizzy is ready to start a new life at a new high school under a new name: Gil Harris. When Gil arrives at East Highland High — his former inmate reputation known to all — he quickly ingratiates himself with the cool kids and lays to waste any jocks who stand in his way. He even manages to date the school's most coveted girl, Danielle (Eliza Dushku). But when a face from his past shows up, it seems that his facade as the big man on campus may be about to crumble. The New Guy also stars Zooey Deschanel and Lyle Lovett, and features cameos from rockers Henry Rollins, Gene Simmons, and Tommy Lee.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Distinguished by certain rodent-like features, Qualls is a bargain-basement, pre-adult version of David Spade -- and becomes just as tiresome.
Rotten: Bad beyond belief and ridiculous beyond description.
Rotten: So wrongheaded that this one couldn't even have looked good on paper.
Rotten: A particularly loathsome piece of cultural detritus.
The best movie ever.
This movie is so awesome. If you don't laugh the basically the whole time you have no sense of humor.
This movie is gross and inapppropriate. It's also absolutely hilarious. I highly recommend buying it. Let me hear you say Amen if your manhood's ever been right angled in front of the whole school! HAHAHA. Great stuff.
wish could buy
hilarious movie worth the watch let it whip baby
