Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Is it really happening or is it a horrible dream? That's what Lizzie (Hilary Duff) is asking herself when she tries to catch the attention of her dream boy, Ethan (Clayton Snyder) -- only to discover that Ethan would rather hang out with Lizzie's pesky kid brother, Matt (Jake Thomas). It all begins when Matt boards the wrong school bus, an event that sparks a bizarre chain of circumstances wherein the kid is mistaken as a child genius, a worldly bon vivant, and "the coolest kid in school"! Lizzie is so outraged that she actually calls the cops to "collect" her brother...with astonishing results.
