The New York Times best-selling series by James Patterson breaks all the rules when Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life arrives on Digital HD December 20 and Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD, and On Demand January 3 from Lionsgate and CBS Films. This hilarious, family-friendly leap from the page to the big screen stars Griffin Gluck (Batman vs. Robin) alongside Lauren Graham (TV’s “Gilmore Girls”), Rob Riggle (The Hangover), Thomas Barbusca (TV’s “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”), Andy Daly (Semi-Pro), Adam Pally (Dirty Grandpa), Isabela Moner (TV’s “100 Things to Do Before High School”), Isabella Amara (The Boss) and Alexa Nisenson (TV’s “Constantine”.)
Rafe has an epic imagination…and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to a rule-crazy middleschool. Drowning in do’s and don’ts, Rafe and his best friend Leo hatch a plan to expose the principal by breaking every rule in the school’s Code of Conduct. As the principal strikes back, Rafe’s world, at home and at school, explodes into hilarious chaos (both real and imagined) in this laugh-filled family comedy based on James Patterson’s best-selling book series.

My little guy is 9 and loves all thins James Patterson! And as a mom I love sharing these stories with him. They make him laugh and helps him to use his imagination. When I realized that Middle School The Worst years of my Life was based on a JamesPatterson Series I just knew my son had to have it. This is a laugh out loud film that will have the whole family giggling. I like that the humor is just good fun for both adults and kids.
