Ellie Jenkins did NOT peak in high school. She wasn't a cheerleader or a band geek, a class president, or a lead in the high school play, and she wasn't voted most likely to...anything. She was just an outsider in a sea of insiders. An invisible girl with a desperate crush on a boy who hardly knew her name, blah, blah, blah... High school stuff.

Cut to ten years later, she's living her dream (sort of) as a TV writer in Los Angeles, on a hit show about the cool kids from high school, and all that pent up frustration is starting to affect her career. When an invitation arrives announcing her ten-year high school reunion, her showrunner makes her an offer: Go to reunion weekend and accomplish a complicated list of challenges or lose her big break forever. She takes the bait and returns to the prison of her adolescence, reuniting with lost friends and missed love to prove once and for all that Ellie is cool now.

Andy's well able to manipulate people. Nobody stands up to him. Elle sort of has in her script - by not giving him the sugar coating of high school that he wants.
honestly if you like high school you've peaked 99% of the time 😂 save for those who just generally weren't pushed around

Lmao why is this my life. But I’m not invisible and highschool is not until next year. But like. My crush probably doesn’t know who I am and I plan to make it big. So at my reunion I can show them that the girl who loves to read Warrior cat books isn’t who they think she was.

                              Let's be honest, that line is relateable...in a way.
Instead of ‘class dismissed’ I feel like it would sound better if it was ‘meeting adjourned’
