Charlie BartlettWhen Charlie Bartlett listens, everyone talks! MGM Home Entertainment presents one young man's smart, funny and touching battle with the hypocrisies of high school and the modern world when Charlie Bartlett debuts on DVD June 24.

Anton Yelchin (Alpha Dog, House of D) "delivers one of those performances that pop eyes" (The Hollywood Reporter) as Charlie Bartlett, a young man who has been kicked out of every private school he has attended and quickly finds out that public school is no cakewalk either. At first shunned and bullied by the school's outcasts and popular kids alike, Charlie quickly wins the respect of the troubled students through his charm and overall likability. He begins to establish himself as the resident "psychiatrist," solving problems, offering advice and prescribing the occasional necessary medication to help deal with the formative years. Eventually Charlie begins to start taking his own advice to heart and what follows is a hysterical dark comedy about angst-filled teenage years.

With outstanding supporting performances by Robert Downey Jr. (Zodiac, Iron Man) and Hope Davis (The Nines, The Weather Man), the Charlie Bartlett DVD includes director and cast commentary, deleted scenes, featurettes, a "Voodoo" music video and more.

Synopsis:
The kids at Western Summit High have "issues," and newcomer Charlie Bartlett (Yelchin) is coming to their rescue. With a briefcase full of prescription pills and a head full of pop psychology, this rebel with a cause brings hilarious help to the student body and unending grief to their neurotic principal, Mr. Gardner (Downey Jr.). Suddenly, Charlie is the hottest man on campus and he's even caught the eye of Gardner's sultry daughter. An outrageous send-up of today's Prozac generation, Charlie Bartlett has your prescription for laugh-out-loud insanity!
