Angus is a large, pathetic 14 year old whose thoughts are most often filled with the image of one Melissa Lefevre. Angus is shy and thinks that he has no chance of ever 'getting' her. Being especially uncool, he is incredibly surprised (along with the rest of the school) that he is chosen to dance with her at the Winter Ball. The only one not surprised is the cool-kid who set him up to fail, but Angus' best friend is going to help him win the heart of Melissa by developing a new look for him.Written by

Weezer was asked to write a song inspired by this film and Rivers Cuomo read the script and wrote two songs: "Wanda" in which he sings from a first persons point of view with lyrics such as: "my mom drives a big rig, and my daddy's gay" which referenced the the original script, and "You Gave Your Love to me Softly". Only the latter was used. See more »
In the opening football scene, when Angus makes a tackle, the football clearly falls to the ground. In the next shot, it is still seen soaring through the air. See more »
My mother named me after my father, Angus; a cow's name, which didn't help matters much, because I was a big kid. My mother was in labor with me for two days, but it was my father who died during child birth. He had a heart attack waiting for her to deliver, but this wasn't really my problem. In fact, I perceived my family situation as relatively normal, until I began to collect expert opinion around kindergarten.

The cable television version on TNT contains many deleted scenes not shown on the theatrical version including:
Extended dialogue between Angus and Troy in the locker room.
Scene with Angus helping his grandfather move some of his stuff to April's house.
Scene with Angus talking with his grandfather and April at April's house. The scene also shows the grandfather's dance move "the irish swoon" which is described to Angus earlier in the film.
Extended scene where Angus goes to the dancing lesson, including Angus and Troy commenting on the teachers good looks.
Scene with Angus and his mom eating Hagandaas ice cream in the kitchen where they talk about the upcoming dance.
Angus was a wonderful movie. it followed the most basic of plot lines, but what i loved about it was the acting, writing, and directing, because those were what made Angus extraordinarily good and unique. chris owen was a triumph, and let's not even talk about charlie talbert. Angus also has a quality to it that was very reminiscent of the story it was based on. the exchanges between Angus and Troy were literally the best i've ever seen. they are truly the original dynamic duo of disaster. with luck, other characters hoping to achieve that particular brand of fame will be measured against them for years to come. ps: read the short story if you haven't. pps: james van der beek gave a great (though small) performance, very uncharacteristic of "the kid's movie villain".
