What do you get when you mix George Lopez, the dramatic true story of inner city kids inspired by their substitute teacher and an underwater robotics competition? “Spare Parts,” the new film from director Sean McNamara (“Soul Surfer”) that stars George Lopez (“Lopez Tonight,” “Rio”) Jamie Lee Curtis (“True Lies,” “New Girl”), Carlos PenaVega (“Little Birds,” “Big Time Rush”) and Marisa Tomei (“Crazy, Stupid Love,” “The Wrestler”).
Here’s the official synopsis: “When four wildly different high schoolers team up to enter a robotics competition against the nation’s top tech colleges, no one believes they have a chance—no one but Fredi (Lopez), their new substitute teacher. As Fredi challenges his students to be the best they can be, they show him the power of never giving up, in an unforgettable tale that shines with heart, humor, and hope.”
Those who enjoyed the trailer (watch it above) can find “Spare Parts” on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand via Time Warner Cable.
