Silent J’s review:
It starts off like your average coming of age film, but it progresses into something much more. The story is told in such a sincere and true way that a lot of it ends up being more true than most coming of age films. You can easily look at these characters and relate to them; they remind you of your own journey's in high school. I mean, whether we want to admit it or not, we've all been a Terri at least once in our lives. Not because he's a heavy set guy or he's a social outcast, but because we've all been through that awkward point in our lives as we discover things about ourselves during our teen years. That's thanks to a great cast. Jacob Wysocki makes a terrific Terri. John C. Reily is fantastic as always and has such real and amazing chemistry with Wysocki. Well acted with a well told story, Terri is a surprising tale that's a little different than most coming of age films and is great.
