Miranda Cosgrove Academy Award when? Where?

I haven't seen this since 2003 but it holds up surprisingly well. This is the role that Jack Black deserves to be remembered for, he's so great in it and just electric during the musical scenes. The kids are all cute, the humor is effective, and the supporting cast is funny.

It's a charming comedy.

P.S. It's amazing, through 2020 eyes, how much of this can come off as creepy.
