Matilda (1996) as Miss Phelps
Matilda is an extraordinary girl, a child of wondrous intelligence. Unfortunately, her neglectful and deeply stupid parents, Harry and Zinnia Wormwood, are too wrapped up in their own lives to care, or even to notice, that their daughter is a budding genius, in love with books and with learning. When the Wormwoods finally grant Matilda's wish to attend school, they bundle her off to Crunchem Hall, a bleak brick prison where students cower before the whip, hand and fist of principal Agatha Trunchbull. Amid Crunchem's darkness, Matilda finds a single light in warm-hearted Miss Honey, the first-grade teacher who recognizes the girl's remarkable skills--including a very special talent that allows the spirited girl to turn the tables on the wicked grown-ups in her world.

Donnelly's advisors decide that Mike needs a "handler" to keep an eye on him during the final days of the campaign. Enter Steve Dodds, a lowly aide on the campaign team, who is to keep Mike under wraps. Al's opponent, the incumbent Governor Evelyn Tracy, takes full advantage of Mike's gaffes to bolster her own campaign--even if it means setting Mike up on purpose.

While in the woods, the guys encounter any number of challenges--both natural and unnatural.
