Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life movie quotes bring the laughs to this film about students who revolt against the strict guidelines set by their principal. Adapted into a screenplay by Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer and Kara Holden based on the book of the same name by James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts, the family comedy was directed by Steve Carr. Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life opened in theaters on October 7, 2016.
In Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, Rafe (Griffin Gluck) starts at a new middle school and soon finds that the worst part isn't his bully, Miller (Jacob Hopkins), but actually the strict rules in the school code of conduct, which are fiercely enforced by Principal Dwight (Andy Daly) and his sidekick Ida Stricker (Retta).
So when Rafe's notebook, which holds his drawings and is perhaps the most cherished item he owns, is confiscated and destroyed, Rafe leads a revolution. He gathers his best friend, Leo (Thomas Barbusca), and his crush Jeanne (Isavela Moner), along with other students and makes a plan to break every single rule in the book. What follows is messy, if not hilarious, and wild.
Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life movie quotes also feature lines from costars Lauren Graham and Rob Riggle. The film joins theaters along with other fall 2016 movies such as The Birth of the Nation, The Girl on the Train, American Honey, and Masterminds.
Lunch lady: No outside food!
Principal Dwight: No talking!
Ida Stricker: No laughing!
Principal Dwight: No going to the bathroom!
Principal Dwight: No bike riding on campus. I'm confiscating this! Get off!
Various staff members recite a number of school rules from the code of conduct. What really should be the rule is, no fun!
The Code of Conduct, Read It
Principal Dwight: Excuse me, young man, what's your name?
Rafe: Rafe Khatchadorian, I'm new.
Principal Dwight: Everything you have on is breaking rule #22.
Rafe: What's rule #22?
Principal Dwight: The code of conduct, read it. Look what's happening to your shirt. Nobody needs to see where your chest hairs are going to be.
It doesn't take long for Principal Dwight to meet new student Rafe, as evidenced in these Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life movie quotes. Unfortunately, their first interaction isn't exactly a positive one.
This Year's Going to Be Fun
Rafe: My name is Rafe Khatchadorian and welcome to my first day of middle school. Every middle school is filled with the same types of kids. There are the kids you want to hang out with and the kids you want to avoid. But in my new school, the biggest bully isn't even a kid. So, yeah, this year's going to be fun.
Rafe explains a bit about him and his new middle school in this Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life movie quote, and in turn explains a bit about the film. He dislikes his new school, mainly due to an awful principal.
Rules Aren't For Everyone
Jeanne: Rules aren't for everyone.
Ida Stricker: What did you just say?
Gus: Whoever did this is committed to the art.
Everyone is surprised when they arrive at school to see it covered in sticky notes. Whether the students are committed to art or staging a protest against the rules is still up for debate.
