    This atypical coming of age story focuses on alienation in high school. The lazy mood of the film leads its characters into one of the more mundane yet realistic climaxes ive ever seen in a film.

    Terri is slow, lazy, and sad. I'm referring not only to the character, but the movie as well. Terri recieved two stars because...I love the piano score and I love Creed Bratton.

    Not your typical teenage coming of age movie this films main strength is for me is to have characters that I have never seen or are so focused on in a movie before. The film is definitely more of a character study than an actual story as it follows teenager Terri Thompson an overweight social misfit who goes to school in Pyjamas and is basically a recluse slightly bullied but not overly so by his peers and we follow him…

    The debate whether to give Terri 4 stars or 3.5 was a tough one. While it may be an accurate showcase of social anxiety, and the pursuit to fit in, the film never reaches any heights on an emotional level. Throughout the film, it gets increasingly harder to feel sympathetic towards the characters (much like Greenberg). Subsequently, because…

    ★★★★ = Very good

    Overweight and poor fifteen-year-old Terri wears pyjamas to school because they are the only comfortable clothes he owns. He has no friends and is mocked by his classmates. He lives on a sole diet of baked beans on toast. Assistant principal Fitzgerald is trying to help him and the other misfits in his school.

    A hit at the Sundance 2011 Film Festival, Azazel Jacob’s wonderful film follows this gentle small-town boy as he lives through some…

    I really liked this movie because it felt real. I connected with this on a human level. I could relate so much to the characters portrayed. At times it was laugh out loud funny, and at times it was deeply dark. Kids can be so cruel .... hell adults can be so cruel. Life can be cruel.

    It's been many years since I was in high school, but some days…

    A movie about teenagers and high school which wasn't completely insufferable to sit through as an adult. A few unrealistic awkward scenes (or maybe I am just out of touch) but nothing too bad. Surprise visit from Tim Heidecker as the gym teacher.

    Terri really reminded me of when I was in my teens and how awkward I felt being around people. It's not just the character I identified with but the movie itself, I felt that it had a lot to say, no matter how you look at it we are all damaged by the things we've done or what's done to us. All we can really do is try to help those who are the same way. I wish I had…

    Άμα δεν το'χε σκηνοθετήσει ο Jacobs δε νομίζω να επέλεγα ποτέ να δω ένα φιλμ για έναν υπέρβαρο,sociall akward έφηβο που πάει στο σχολείο φορώντας πιτζάμες και crocs.
