Status Update

Darryl Moore (Rob Riggle) and his wife Ann (Wendi McLendon-Covey) relocate to a neighbourhood in New England, forcing their teenage son Kyle (Ross Lynch) to change high schools. He struggles to make new friends and is targeted by bullies. The only person who seems to want to spend any time with Kyle is fellow misfit Lonnie Gregory (Harvey Guillen). When the cool kids maliciously smash his mobile phone, Kyle asks for help from a quirky repair shop man (Josh Ostrovsky). He suggests that Kyle should defeat the bullies by projecting positivity into the universe on a new app he has designed. The lonely, miserable teenager does just that and Kyle is stunned to discover that the wild fantasies he posts on the app as status updates - like his ability to sing and dance like a chart-topping superstar - become reality. In no time at all, Kyle becomes the coolest kid at school and the object of competing affections for Dani McKenzie (Olivia Holt) and Charlotte Alden (Courtney Eaton). However, his soaring popularity is based on a series of outlandish lies and eventually Kyle will have to own up to the people he cares about in a feel-good fantasy directed by Scott Speer.
