My kids so badly wanted to see MIDDLE SCHOOL: THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE when it was in theater but between school and other activities, we never got to the theater. But now they are happy to know they can watch it at home. It arrives on Digital HD December 20 and Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand January 3. So in just a few days you can buy the digital download!

We love to stream movies. We don’t have to worry about finding the disk and an extra remote. Plus it’s released a little bit earlier than the actual Blu-Ray. For this movie, it will be released 2 weeks early on Digital HD. You can find it at any of your favorite places to buy movies like iTunes and Amazon.

The New York Times best-selling series by James Patterson breaks all the rules when Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life arrives on Digital HD December 20 and Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD, and On Demand January 3 from Lionsgate and CBS Films. This hilarious, family-friendly leap from the page to the big screen stars Griffin Gluck (Batman vs. Robin) alongside Lauren Graham (TV’s “Gilmore Girls”), Rob Riggle (The Hangover), Thomas Barbusca (TV’s “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp), Andy Daly (Semi-Pro), Adam Pally (Dirty Grandpa), Isabela Moner (TV’s “100 Things to Do Before High School”), Isabella Amara (The Boss) and Alexa Nisenson (TV’s “Constantine”.)

Rafe has an epic imagination…and a slight problem with authority. Both collide when he transfers to a rule-crazy middle school. Drowning in do’s and don’ts, Rafe and his best friend Leo hatch a plan to expose the principal by breaking every rule in the school’s Code of Conduct. As the principal strikes back, Rafe’s world, at home and at school, explodes into hilarious chaos (both real and imagined) in this laugh-filled family comedy based on James Patterson’s best-selling book series.


The Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life home entertainment release special features include four behind-the-scenes featurettes, a hilarious gag reel plus four deleted scenes, including one hilarious animated sequence. Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.


Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life is directed by Steve Carr with screenplay by Chris Bowman & Hubbel Palmer and Kara Holden. Executive produced by James Patterson and Steve Bowen. Produced by Leopoldo Gout and Bill Robinson.
