Charlie Bartlett is a film much in the mode of John Hughes's classic teen comedies from the 80s - Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Breakfast Club especially. Posh newcomer Charlie wins over his initially unfriendly classmates by becoming a sort of unofficial psychiatrist, setting up his office in the restroom and dispensing advice to fellow students. However, things start to get complicated when he begins handing out medication that a real psychiatrist has prescribed for him, and which earns him the attention of sassy Susan Gardner, the daughter of the school's principal.
Essential drama as a socially disparate group of high school teens spend their saturday detention growing toward each other.
