Description by OLDIES.com:

Angus is fat, dorky and smart, a kid with an uncool pal and a crush on a cheerleader. Angus is funny, rowdy and triumphant, a totally cool movie with a dead-on eye and ear for the hilarious, heartbreaking rite of passage called high school. A great cast (including Academy Award® winners* George C. Scott and Kathy Bates as Angus's oddball family) sparks this story about what happens when Angus is named King of the Winter Ball as a prank - and how he turns humiliation into victory. Angus, Roger Ebert wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times, "delivers a rousing ‘up yours' to all the snotty high school golden boys [and] a climax that I, for one, found wholly the equal of anything in Rocky."

Product Description:

This family comedy based on a short story by Chris Crutcher follows the exploits of a high school geek whose enemy gets him elected as King of the Winter Ball. Now he's got to decide between being embarrassed at the dance or finishing his coveted science project--with a little help from his friends.

Plot Synopsis:

High schooler Angus is an overweight outcast, with a serious lack of self-esteem. Furthermore, he's had a crush on the lovely Melissa for ages, but she's attached to handsome jock Rick, who hates Angus. But when Rick plays a cruel joke on Angus at the prom, it unintentionally embarrasses Melissa as well, so she leaves him. Can the corpulent Angus beat the odds and win Melissa's heart'
