While it has the potential to be snarky, dim, and thin, "Speech & Debate" is downright wonderful at times, eschewing the plastic teen routine to create dimensional characters facing interesting personal and educational challenges.

Once a darkly comic romp centered around outing a pedophile teacher, this adaptation has been shorn of its sharpest edges, leaving a largely unfocused, conventional teen dramedy in its place.

...Speech & Debate will probably not stand out among the best, although it is, at times, a fun ride anyway.

Ultimately Speech & Debate is stuck in a Catch-22: It's so hard to argue with the premise that it's tough to get excited about it.

The film's stage origins, and a cameo appearance by Lin-Manuel Miranda, may be of interest to theater buffs, but everyone else will be left wondering what all the fuss was about.

Although the story, which feels a tad past its expiration date, never digs too deeply into its central issues (hypocrisy, loneliness, censorship, finding one's voice), Dan Harris' peppy direction and nimble turns by the film's young leads prevail.

All in all, this is a plucky but rather disorganised attempt to explore pressing issues. For a teen-focused film, it's refreshingly lacking in cynicism, but its fate will depend on whether or not its audience shares this quality.

Over all, the movie ... has a focus problem that leaves its humorous moments obscured and its intentions hazy.

Harris structures Speech & Debate like a musical comedy that's building up to a cathartic final number, but scene after scene just falls flat.
