What to expect in Popular Theory?

She doesn’t have any friends and even her sister thinks she’s a social leper. Determined to win the State Science Fair, she teams up with classmate Winston, a fellow outcast and chemistry guru, to create a popularity chemical which they add into sticks of chewing gum.”

The film stars Cheryl Hines, Sophia Reid-Ganzert, Chloe East, Lincoln Lambert, Marc Evan Jackson, Melissa Ponzio, Eugenie Bondurant, and Kat Conner Sterling.
