    I admit that I was like Terri in high school and in middle school, except for the pajamas, the missing parents, and the obsession with dead animals. I had experienced some of the bullying that he got, which was why I sympathized so much with this character. Jacob Wysocki gives a great breakthrough performance as the title character Terri, who for the most part, seems to be a loner. He has no friends, no parents to speak of, and an…

    "There are two groups of kids that stand out in this school - the good hearted ones and the bad hearted ones - and those are the ones whose names I remember."
    "Good hearts my ass."

    Super sweet and simple, really the definition of a little gem of a movie. The second you see Terri all you can think is "poor kid" and for a moment I thought the movie was going to bring back bad memories in the worst…

    A warm hearted, if a little quirky, film with some charming performances from the kids. John C. Reilly's character is a bit too 'arch' though.

    Almost too subtle of a film to be highly regarded/regarded highly, Terri is a little film about an oversized and parentless -- he lives with his elderly uncle -- teenage misfit named Terri (Jacob Wysocki - Unfriended, Pitch Perfect) who is not comfortable in (1) "day clothes" as he likes his pajamas or (2) in school as he isn't a great student nor does he have (m)any friends.

    Taking care of his Uncle James (Creed Bratton [of the US version…

    [Notas viejas del 2011 en el tumblr...]

    He visto TERRI (Azazel Jacobs, 2011, PRO) que sigue inestrenada en España, siendo ya una de mis favoritas de este año ~ Permanece equidistante de otras crónicas miserabilistas como PALINDROMES (2006) de Todd Solondz o PRECIOUS (2009) de Lee Daniels, pues TERRI no tiene ni el perturbador tenebrismo moral de la primera ni los estruendosos excesos truculentos de la segunda, más bien se decanta por un retrato de la disfuncionalidad (horrible palabra) que…

    It starts off following the same old coming-of-age / mentor movie formula, but Terri eventually transcends those tropes, mostly because just about every moment is so sincere and filled with such humanity and truth. This is helped along by the eye-opening performance by Jacob Wysocki (Terri), yet another actor this year who won't get nearly the amount of attention he deserves.

    A long and surprisingly tense and emotional scene that serves as the climax really sums up the confusion…

    What a delight... "Terri" was a real small masterpiece with its misdirected unpredictability! Director Azazel Jacobs portraits adolescence flawlessly managing to capture the cruelty and the sweetness of it, delivering very realistic and entirely absorbing drama. The story of a young man, actually a misfit, who is orphaned to an uncle who is fading away, mercilessly teased by his peers and roundly ignored by his teacher, is warm and different. Terri is alienated and alone but finds an unusual friend…

    A select group of social outcasts are taken under the wing of their eccentric vice principal. The result is rather a delightful story of some very quirky individuals who exhibit some rather attractive, redeeming qualities.

    "Life's a mess. But we're all just doing the best that we can . . . So if I hurt you, all I can tell you is I'm sorry and I will try to do better. Maybe I will do better, or maybe I'll do…

    Jacob Wysocki gives an impressive performance as Terri, a lonely, indifferent, obese 15 year old who wears PJs to school, and who comes to the attention of his helping principal (Reilly, also terrific). The awkwardness of adolescence is painfullly captured at times. One has to wonder though if the assortment of characters surrounding Terri, and Terri himself, needed to be so weird.
