Time Out says

His grades are so poor he risks being thrown out of school, but Max Fischer (Schwartzman) isn't about to let a academic performance cramp his career at Rushmore Academy. He's editor of the student paper, president of the chess, astronomy, German and French clubs, captain of the fencing and debate teams, and the creative force of the Max Fischer Players. Then there's his unreciprocated passion for Miss Cross (Williams), the new first grade teacher. With the help of his industrialist friend Mr Blume (Murray), Max reckons he can win her heart by constructing an aquarium on the school baseball field. This is a peculiar, poignant comedy, with an outstanding character turn from Murray, but what are we to make of this character, Max, in his beret, braces and blazer? He's part Ferris Bueller, part Jay Gatsby. His class affectations are just that (dad is actually a barber), yet his romantic yearning edges towards psychosis. Bemusing.
