The New Guy

Posted on

The New Guy tells the story of a high school loser (played by DJ Qualls) who goes to prison and reinvents himself, with the help of a smooth-talking con (Eddie Griffin), and the hilarity that follows him after he enrolls in a new school. What really needs reinventing is this dismal movie website: a bare-bones effort that offers a silly ”Punt the Geek” game and asks visitors to register for additional ”New Guy” info. We’ll pass—this site barely does.
