Rating: 2/5 -- The film never gets too far beyond disposable youth fare, best consumed like mouthfuls of sugary cereal. Full Review

...[The film] preserves the show's sparky humour, weaving enough throwaway lines into the action to capture adults as well as children...

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Recess: School's Out
The Third Street Elementary School kids are teaming up to save summer vacation for kids all over the world in Disney's RECESS: SCHOOL'S OUT -- the hit theatrical movie that The Washington Post calls "Great Fun!" The school year is finally ending, and T.J. Detweiler is looking forward to summer. But boredom quickly sets in when his friends leave for camp -- until T.J. uncovers an evil plot to do away with summer vacation! A crazy former principal, Dr. Benedict, is planning to use a laser beam to alter the weather and create permanent winter. Faced with the dire threat of year-round school, T.J. rounds up the RECESS gang and bands together with some unexpected allies -- Miss Finster and Principal Prickly -- in a nonstop adventure to save everyone's summer break. As the kids discover the heroes inside themselves, a platoon of wacky characters, far-out music, and sci-fi surprises turn this madcap mission into a major victory for fun!
