When the world of nerds and jocks collide in Alley Cats Strike, new, yet unlikely, friendships form. And that sense of camaraderie is just what Alex needed to gain the confidence to be the best he could be.
This film made being a nerd look cool and badass. Which is generally the trend now, but we can admit it took a decade or two for that to happen.
You've got to love Delia's feisty attitude. Look at her school that jock!

I may be terrible at bowling (I'm not kidding), and I may still need the bumpers, but this movie reminds me that I am still cool even with my "training wheels on." Or, at least, I'll just keep telling myself that.
Let's be real, the best part about bowling is the food on the menu at the alley. Pizza is better than getting two strikes in a row!
