I have to watch this again soon...
One of the funniest scenes ever. (You may have to view the movie if you don't agree with me...)
Rushmore -- Offbeat comedy about a hyperactive 15-year-old (Jason Schwartzman) whose crush on a widowed schoolteacher (Olivia Williams) leads him to extremes in trying to stop his closest friend, a married millionaire (Bill Murray), from romancing her. Directed by Wes Anderson, the bittersweet tale of teenage angst is helped by performances which aptly blend humor with pathos as the youth learns about rejection and forgiveness. Brief violence, an implied affair, a few crass sexual references and a flash of nude pin-ups, a scene of underage drinking, occasional rough language and minimal profanity. (A-III) (R) ( 1998 )
