Pay it Forward

Pay it Forward is a melodrama about 11-year-old Trevor, who spurred by his inspiring social studies teacher Mr. Eugene Simonet launches his own scheme for making the world a better place. His idea is this: He will do three people a favour. The only thing they have to do in return is to help three other people, and so a chain reaction is set in motion.
   The three people that Trevor tries to help are the drug addict Jerry, a classmate who is bullied by a group of older boys and thirdly his mother Arlene. She is a single mother who is on the bottle now and again. Trevor tries to get Arlene together with his teacher, who has a disfigured face, but both are afraid to trust the other and get hurt for the umpteenth time. Helping people may not be that easy, so will Trevor's project succeed?
   If it were not for the actors this film would be unbearable to watch. The story is full of clichés and towards the ending it all gets much too sentimental. Yes, I admit that I cried too.
