Charlie Bartlett

"If you want to be free ..."

A film that refers to Harold and Maude more than once through its signature Cat Stevens' lyric "If you want to sing out, sing out/And if you want to be free, be free" is going to win my heart no matter how unspectacular its screenplay or derivative its plot. The similarities to Rushmore and Ferris Buhler with a bit of Risky Business don't hurt although it is not witty enough to be remembered as those three are.
