Synopsis: At the Buckeston Academy High School, the wealthy, arrogant, narcissistic, and bigoted Kyle Kingson is a student who does not respect his classmates. When Kyle is elected representative of the students, he plays a prank on the outcast Kendra, who has a reputation as a witch: he invites her to a party and humiliates her in front of their classmates. However, Kendra curses him with a spell that makes Kyle as ugly as his soul. Further, she tells him that if he does not find anyone who loves him within a year, he will be doomed to that appearance forever. When Kyle's father, Rob Kingson, sees him, he takes Kyle to specialists but the doctors do not know what to do, so Rob hides Kyle in an apartment with a maid and a blind tutor. When Kyle sees his mate Lindy on the streets, he saves her from a dangerous drug dealer and he brings her to his apartment to protect her. Now his only hope is that Lindy will fall in love with him.

And the next candidate

for Buckston High School

Green Committee President,

Kyle Kingson.

True or false...

you are an aggressively

unattractive person.

Hatchet face, face-ache,

face like burnt lego?

Or did you only

just miss the beauty boat.

Any which way,

best embrace the suck.

Beautiful people get it better.

That's just the way it is.

So-So... what does this got to do

with running for

Green Committee President?

Not much. Except...

you'll never elect me 'cause of

my commitment to the environment.

I don't have one.

I want this for my transcript.

But what you got to ask

yourselves is,

should you vote for me just

because I'm the rich, popular,

goodlooking guy

with the famous dad?

And the answer is, hell yeah.

Palm of your hand, man,

palm of your hand.

Stellar Angels in America essay.

I appreciate all the extra time

you spent with me, Mr. Bernstein.

You hate that teacher's guts.

Whatever it takes,

'til the college recs are in.

Speech killed.

Speaking of killing, you see that

ball-biting, voodoo-tatted slut.

But really, who gives?

Stick to my mantra

steer clear of the witch.

I'll put it out of your head later.

What the sh*t?

Maybe it's just me,

but shouldn't whoever runs

the Green Committee

actually care about things green?

Or be green, like the rest of

your facially disabled coven?

Throw it to someone deserving.

Lindy Taylor's

only going for Treasurer

because she knew she couldn't win

President against you.

No, no, no. I...

But I think we're all hoping that

in the privacy of the voting booth

your bandwagoneers will stop

fearing for their social lives

and make the right choice.

And might I just add,

looks are important to you.

They're important to everyone.

Except you, clearly.

Appreciate the smear campaign

and kudos to you and

your bitchcrafty friend

for staging a little coup,

but if you wanted Prez,

you shoulda had...

Actually, I don't want Prez,

I don't know Kendra and

I don't let others speak for me.

But maybe that's just me being

the defensive scholarship kid. So,

best of luck tomorrow.

And it's nice to finally meet you

after three years.

How are you?

Not bad.

Elections today.


No, not you.

I was talking to my son.

- Did us proud.

- Yeah, all right.

Experimented with heroin too.

Terrific. Uh, wait, hold on. Jill,

I got to go.

Hey, I'm sorry, Jill got canned.

Yeah, it's probably the way

the baby ten looked on camera.

And she's a big-boned girl

to begin with.

People like people who look good.

Anyone who says otherwise

is dumb or ugly.

- Who's Jill?

- I told you about her.

I don't think so.

And I know this because

the last time we had a conversation

that lasted more than five minutes

was sophomore year.

I hear you.

Why don't you leave me alone?

When I told you

I had brain cancer.

And? Oh, shoot. Hang on.

Rob Kingson.


Nothing. I say good night.

Why, 'cause you need to get home

to your sixteen children?

My three children live in Jamaica

with their father, which you know.

Do me a favor.

Save the sob stories

for your heart-to-hearts

with Mr. Clean.

You no vex me,

you stoosh ginnygog.

And next year's GC president

Kyle Kingson.

Josh Black, please report

to the principal's office.

Don't think it was a landslide,

if it makes you feel better.

And... and I'm sorry.

Is bullshit one word or two?

No, it's not...

And I want to make it up to you.

I get two Green Party VIP passes.

Scores you greenroom access,

that kinda thing. Want one?

- What's the catch?

- No catch.

- So I'd be like, going with you?

- Yeah.
