Nobody understand Wallace Wallace. This reluctant school football hero has been suspended from the team for writing an unfavorable book report of OLD SHEP, MY PAL. But Wallace won't tell a lie--he hated every minute of the book! Why does the dog in every classic novel have to croak at the end?
After refusing to do a rewrite, his English teacher, who happens to be directing the school play OLD SHEP, MY PAL, forces him to go to rehearsals as punishment. Although Wallace doesn't change his mind, he does end up changing the play into a rock-and-roll rendition, complete with Rollerblades and a moped!

Synopsis
Eighth-grade football hero Wallace Wallace is sentenced to detention attending rehearsals of the school play where, in spite of himself, he becomes wrapped up in the production and begins to suggest changes that improve not only the play but his life as well.
