Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this romantic comedy suitable for family viewing, a Francophone high school student from Montreal goes to Auckland, New Zealand as an exchange student and encounters a whole new world. The film begins as rambunctious Timothy Taylor again falls victim to the cruel high school bully. This time, Derek stuffs the hapless lad in a locker in the girl's locker room. After finding Timothy in the girls' locker room, his school principal punishes Timothy by forcing him to allow the new exchange student to stay at his house. They believe the visitor's name is Michel Dubois. Timothy is not too thrilled until he sees that there was a typo on the list and the exchange student is actually named "Michelle" Dubois. To make it even better, Michelle is gorgeous. Unfortunately, she doesn't want to be in New Zealand. She is only there because her parents thought she and her boyfriend were getting too close. It takes time, but eventually, Timothy and Michelle become good friends.
