Just like any kid, ten-year old Jack wants to go to school and play with others his own age. But Jack is no ordinary kid. A rare medical condition has caused Jack to age at four times the normal rate, making him a child in a man's body! On Jack's first day at school, he fits neither into the desk nor in with his classmates... who at first consider him more of a freak than a friend. It's not until Jack's awkward encounter with girls and his calamitous treehouse sleepover that 5th grade becomes the adventure of his life.

    Is he deaf?

  • Guy in bar

    No, that's not gonna be good enough: "Sorry".

  • Jack

    Well, I said I'm sorry. I'm sorry! Yeez, what is it with you? What? Are you totally hyper or something? Too much sugar?

  • Jack

    Rubber, glue, sticks to you! Got him!

  • Guy in bar

    I'm a loser, but you're a son of a bitch!

  • Jack

    I can't believe you said that! You cussed! Oh, you said the b-word! Oh, you're gonna get in so much trouble! You really are!

  • Jack

    I just want to be a regular star.

  • Mr. Woodruff

    Jack, you'll never be regular. You're spectacular.



He's a healthy ten year old who's growing four times faster than normal. Now he's ready for the biggest adventure of his life...
5th grade.
