A teen comedy directed by Edward Decter, the co-writer of THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY. Nerdy high school senior Dizzy Harrison (D J Qualls) has finally got lucky - he has a second chance to be the guy with no past in THE NEW GUY, a comedic story about wiping the slate clean and reinventing yourself.
Transforming from dud to stud at a new school with the help of Luther (Eddie Griffin) geeky Dizzy becomes cool Gil Harris and sets out to destroy the popularity-obsessed social system, boost school morale and win the heart of Danielle (Eliza Dushku), the gorgeous girl next door. THE NEW GUY also stars Lyle Lovett and Zooey Deschanel.
