    Angus Bethune (Charlie Talbert) is a 14-year-old boy living in Ohio who, despite his talents as a football player and in science class, holds deep insecurities about himself. His high school peers, led by the handsome Rick Sanford (James Van Der Beek) and his complacent cohorts, regularly harass Angus for not being "normal," since Angus is pathetically overweight and is, in their view, "named after a cow." Because of this, Angus applies for a magnet school where he hopes to be free of the constant humiliation. Such infamy has shied Angus away from revealing his feelings to his secret crush, the blonde cheerleader Melissa Lefevre (Ariana Richards), for fear that she will reject him, and because she is currently dating Rick. Rick, however, is not lost on Angus' wish: As the ultimate prank, he rigs an election so that Angus and Melissa will dance together in the upcoming Winter Ball as King and Queen, respectively.

    Frightened upon learning this, Angus gets help from his best (and only) friend Troy Wedberg (Chris Owen), his mother Meg (Kathy Bates), and his narcoleptic Grampa (George C. Scott). His grandfather tells him about a dance move called the Irish Swoon that he claims is a guaranteed lady-pleaser, but Angus fears that his largeness makes him an inept dancer and would embarrass both him and Melissa. To fix this, Grampa takes Angus to Madame Rulenska (Rita Moreno), where despite Angus' best efforts he comes out worse than before (and injuring the hapless Madame in the process).

    One day after football practice, Angus opens his locker and sees that his favorite pair of boxers are missing. Angus and Troy learn later with their own eyes that their fellow quarterback Rick hoisted his boxers up the flagpole for the school to see, which then fly squarely onto passerby Melissa's face. Angus storms home in anger, but Rick and company quickly kidnap Troy, asking him for anything that would embarrass Angus at the Winter Ball. Troy refuses their request and tries to escape, only to break his arm as he trips to the floor while Rick gives Troy an ultimatum.

    Meanwhile, Angus helps Grampa prepare for his marriage to the young thirty-something named April. As Angus waits with Grampa in his room on the day of the wedding and confides with him his love for Melissa, he tries to wake him, but he quickly discovers that he is dead. Distraught, Angus opts to stay home for a few days (time in which, for fear that Rick will hurt him even more, Troy procures a videotape to Rick).

    Later that week, while cleaning up from the wedding, Angus receives a box from April and opens it, revealing the plum suit that Angus had earlier rejected. Resolved to grant Grampa's wish, he rejects an interview from the science school he applied to, wears his plum suit and marches to the school gymnasium, where the dance is held. Angus meets Melissa, and the two converse for the first time. As they are introduced to the students, Rick plays Troy's videotape on the monitors, which shows Angus dancing with an inflatable doll. The students laugh while Melissa runs out of the gym, and Angus follows. Outside the gym, Angus apologizes, yet surprisingly Melissa shows her disgust with Rick and reveals that she is bulimic and that Rick is very controlling and it is even hinted that he can be abusive. Finding common ground, the two return to the gym and dance, even as Melissa helps him out with some of the steps. After the two receive a mild reception from the students, Rick scolds Melissa, while Angus comes to her defense. It is here that Angus finally confronts Rick and petitions him to realize that there are in fact many people that don't fit Rick's idea of "normal," are unwantingly ostracized for it, and are fed up with the humiliation. Rick refuses Angus' plea by replying "Whatever I am, it's something you're never gonna be." to which Angus replies "Thank God!" basically saying that he would rather be an awkward fat kid if being "Normal" meant being a malevolent, stuck up creep like him. The students congratulate Angus for taking a stand against Rick.

    a million. definite, I do like it yet i'm no longer below any circumstances obsessed and have not have been given any staying power with the freakish, obsessed, groupie fangirls. i like it with the aid of fact, nicely, it is not like the standard sugary candy severe college musical tweeniebopper pap that I often study/watch (am attempting to decrease down on that nonetheless!) 2. No, have not study it. i'd prefer to nonetheless, I even have heard it truly is extremely solid. 3. I even have in basic terms study the 1st 2 books. So i don't have a popular.
