Max Keeble's Big Move

Synopsis: Max Keeble is a nice, quiet teenager, whose idea of 'superhero-requiring' danger is braving Evil Ice Cream Man who blames him for a health complaint from ma Lily. She spent six years on just the right interior and now hears from dad Don Keeble, a wimp whose 'career' in commercial publicity still only got him wearing sly costumes, a promotion requires the family to move to Chicago. Initially Max just hates giving up his high-school friends, a fatso and a music-maniac, but when their former friend Troy McGinty picks on them with his new image as bully realizes leaving means he can't be punished after Friday, and plans an orgy of revenge. Max's targets include the arrogant new principal, Elliot T. Jindraike, who spends the school budget on a new sports stadium to flatter the inspector, Superintendant Bobby 'Crazy Legs' Knebworth, and even plants to tear down the animal shelter. When it's all in motion, dad suddenly announces he has taken Max's first advice and turned down the promotion!

and their rickets

and their lice.

Their snot-nosed,



squealing voices.

And yet, each one a rung

on the ladder of my success.

A ladder that ends

in a vast neon sign...

that stretches across

the night sky.


Principal Jindraike?

These came from

your real-estate agent.

The sign, Mrs. Rangoon.

What does it say?

"Superintendent Jindraike."

The sign on my office door.

That's what it should say.

Sounds so much better than

"Superintendent Knebworth."

It's classier, too.

When Knebworth sees

what I've done in his honor...

the old dinosaur is sure

to make me his successor.

But, first things first,

Mrs. Rangoon.

Set up the video

broadcast machine device.

I want to address

the acne-strafed masses.

Curtis Junior High

has a long...

and fascinating history

of colorful bullies.

-You're lying.

-Am I?

In 1985, Tomato-face Callahan.

He'd walk right up and shove

a tomato in your face.

1991, Wedgie Jackson.

He invented

the world wide wedge.

Which brings us to this year.

Troy McGinty.

Word is, he's gonna pound...

on a different kid every day.

And he's devised

his own special way...

of letting the world know

who he's coming after.

Max Keeble?


All right.

Julius Klinghoffer.


-All right.

Lil' Romeo?

Yo, whuzzup?

I'm over here, wo dat.


Lil' Romeo's in the house.

I'm down with that.

Tina Michaels?

And now...

This is Principal Jindraike.

All students will report

to the assembly hall...

during third period

for a special presentation.

Attendance is mandatory.

All must attend.

Not attending is prohibited.

That is all. Thank you.

Yes! The reviews are in.

Ha! Jindraike, two thumbs up.

I laughed, I cried.

The man's a genius.

-Principal Jindraike!

-What now, Rangoon?
