Colum­bus’s clumsy, bor­ing high-school com­edy de­tails the events that im­me­di­ately suc­ceed an ar­che­typal nerd’s grad­u­a­tion. Per­suaded into ill-ad­vised hon­esty by his clos­eted best friend, De­nis (Rust) finds time in his vale­dic­tory ad­dress to an­nounce his love for cheer­leader Beth Cooper (Panet­tiere). Later that night, he fi­nally makes friends with Beth as they flee her fu­ri­ous boyfriend. It thinks it’s this gen­er­a­tion’s Fer­ris Beuller. It isn’t. 15A cert, gen release, 102 min
