Coming of age in Plainsboro, New Jersey. High school student Hal Hefner stutters. On the evening his parents stop arguing and separate, 43 miles away at the state tournament, his school's legendary debater, Ben Wekselbaum, goes blank mid-sentence, Ben's teammate Ginny Ryerson doesn't get a first-place trophy, and the world changes. That fall, to Hal's amazement, Ginny recruits him for the debate team, mentors him, and will be his partner. He still has his stutter, but he works hard and he falls in love with Ginny. On the day of the first debate of the season, the world changes again. From then until the day of the state tournament, Hal has a lot to sort out. Is love rocket science?

simply put, i just really loved it. i know it wasn't perfect but it's definitely worth seeing.


An interesting quirky film with some great characters -- some all too real high school moments -- and some very funny scenes. Well written, well-acted, well-directed. This is not the standard "kid overcomes his problems and wins great victories" film -- and in that sense is all the more worth watching. Saw it with my kids -- 16 and 20 -- and they both liked it a lot.


I saw this film at The Sundance Film Festival. It is so charming, i have no bad remarks for this film. I say Rocket Science is a "MUST GO!" Run to see this, not walk.


Didn't change my life, but it kept me engaged the whole time I was watching, and I never knew what would happen next. Very engaging group of characters, even those with very little screen time.


(i'm speechless) and going back with all my friends
