Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade—easy watch, a mind-soother—comes from the 1997 television series. It brings back memories for anyone who enjoyed the television series. Great work for Director Howy Parkins.


Fifth Graders deal with a cranky elementary school teacher.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Howy Parkins for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Bart Jennett for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Vince LaSalle (voice of Rickey D’Shon Collins), Mikey Blumberg/Tubby (voice of Jason Davis), T.J. Detweiler (voice of Myles Jeffrey), Gretchen Grundler (voice of Ashley Johnson), Gus Griswald (voice of Courtland Mead), Spinelli (voice of Pamela Adlon), Miss Grotke (voice of Allyce Beasley), Principal Prickly (voice of Dabney Coleman), and Miss Finster/Mrs. Detweiler (voice of April Winchell).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s an easy watch that does not require a great deal of mental investment.
