The general idea for the movie is not bad, although fairly typical and clichefilled... And boasting of stereotypes.<br/><br/>About students rebelling against the system.<br/><br/>I usually enjoy these sorts of movies but I didn&#39;t like this too much.<br/><br/>A big issue was the main character, he&#39;s supposed to be the typical lovable &#39;loser&#39; but he comes across as a big of a arrogant douchebag as the people he is rebelling against half the time.<br/><br/>In the beginning we see him making fun a out of a disabled girl when his friend claims that he has the hots for her, saying that she is like the female version of the elephant man etc.<br/><br/>I mean, this is the guy that we are supposed to root for and think is the champion of the underdogs? Occasionally it gets some things right, but not very often.<br/><br/>I really like Zoe Kravitz usually but she couldn&#39;t save this movie, but I suppose she didn&#39;t have much to work with.

It&#39;s the first week of Senior year and already, Gonzo Gilman has been kicked off the school paper and his friends are being bullied. Gonzo is a smart kid and he knows better than anyone that the pen is mightier than the sword. With the help of his loser buddies, Gonzo comes up with a plan to create the anti-newspaper of his High School, a publication that focuses on the negatives of the school and it&#39;s students. Most of these High School themed movies are about the popular kids drama or the unknown student who becomes a legend, but how often do you see the losers rise up against the popular kids, in a non-violent way? This story was written by Bryan Goluboff, who also wrote the screen play for one of my favorite movies, The Basketball Diaries. Much like that film, this one is as clever as it is funny. Ezra Miller stars as Gonzo, and gives the best performance I&#39;ve seen him give. Yes, he was great in Perks of Being a Wallflower, but he has a whole different energy here, and I think it might have something to do with Miller&#39;s personal life. Miller is openly gay and has often talked about how difficult it&#39;s been for him. The character he&#39;s playing here, Gonzo Gilman, is a cult hero for every kid that&#39;s ever been bullied and didn&#39;t know what to do about it, and in a way I think this role was Miller&#39;s way of fighting back against what happened to him. He&#39;s opposed by Jesse McCartney, the most popular kid in school. I think McCartney is a tremendous talent and he&#39;s a good looking kid. For that reason, he&#39;s always portrayed as this sweet, lovable guy, and it was really great to see him in a different type of role. Sometimes the best way to rejuvenate your career is by trying something new and it works here. Beware The Gonzo is a refreshingly unique, independent film, with a great young cast, and an amazing writer, who is very particular about what he does. Everything comes together to create something terrific that we really haven&#39;t seen before. I can honestly say I loved every minute of this film and for that it&#39;s receives the label of must see movie!
