Movie Details

MAD TV veterans Michael McDonald and Stephanie Weir headline this romantic comedy centering on the romance between a small-town principal and a bipolar teacher. Mitch Henderson (McDonald) is the principal of Roundlake Elementary. By all accounts Mitch is living the American dream - he's married with a son and living in middle-class bliss - but lately he's been stuck in a rut and can't seem to find a way out. Meanwhile, third grade teacher Candy Peterson has just been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and she's struggling to get her life on track. The only peace she finds is in her classroom late at night, peering through her telescope at the shimmering stars above. When Mitch begins spending his nights at the school as well, their paths begin to converge and their problems don't seem nearly as severe as they do by the cold light of day. In time, Mitch and Candy begin to develop a relationship that seems almost perfect. Sometimes romance has a way of blossoming under the most unlikely of circumstances. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
