A LGBT movie for the "Glee" crowd (minus the musical numbers), "Geography Club" retains just enough of novelist Brent Hartinger's no-nonsense style to give it cred.
An affable if familiar high-school comedy populated by bright pupils, badly behaved teachers and amateur theatricals.
Cameron Deane Stewart, Justin Deeley, Andrew Caldwell, Allie Gonino, Meaghan Martin, Ally Maki and Nikki Blonsky are starring in indie teen comedy "Geography Club."
Fresh off "Hairspray," Nikki Blonsky delivers an utterly charming performance in this satisfying fact-based story, about an overweight teenager nominated for homecoming queen as a cruel prank.
