Imagine being a teenager and not having more hair than someone in their forties or fifties! Harold Renolds (played by Spencer Breslin from “The Santa Clause 2”, “The Cat in the Hat”, and “Disney’s The Kid”) is one mature looking thirteen-year-old. In fact he doesn’t just look much older than he actually is, but he has the attitude to go with it. He’s happy in his hometown, though, and everyone there accepts him for who he is since they’ve known him for years. All of a sudden his mother, Moreen Renolds (played by Ally Sheedy from movies like “The Breakfast Club”, “Short Circuit”, and “Made to Order”), gets a new job in a different town, and his world is turned upside down. Harold’s sister Shelly (played by Stella Maeve who has had appearances on TV shows such as “Bones”, “House”, and “Grey’s Anatomy”) has no trouble adjusting to the new surroundings, but, needless to say, with that shiny bald head and middle-aged attitude Harold doesn’t exactly fit in. From the moment he removes his baseball cap for the first time in front of the entire class until the time he gets creamed by dodge balls in the gym, he feels as if he’ll never get along with anyone in his new school. Not everyone hates the kid, though. He makes a few friends that already get harassed by bullies, and also gets along well with the school janitor, Cromer Styles (played by veteran actor Cuba Gooding Jr. from films like “Boyz in the Hood”, “A Few Good Men”, and “Fighting Temptations”). Cromer gives Harold a few tips and boosts his spirits a little. He gets the awkward teen’s confidence going, and in no time Harold’s running with high school kids that are older than him, getting looks from girls in the hallway, and becoming accepted just the way he was in his old town.
