Looking for Ms. Locklear



During the summer of 2006, Rhett and Link decided to search for their beloved teacher. They chose not to use the Internet or the telephone, but instead to rely on face-to-face contact with people. Looking for Ms. Locklear is a documentary chronicling this search, which led them far from home and into the company of a host of characters. The movie prominently features the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, as their search led them to the center of Lumbee culture, Pembroke, NC. Backstory: Rhett and Link met on the first day of first grade in Buies Creek Elementary School, after their teacher Ms. Locklear made them stay inside during recess for writing profanity on their desks. They became best friends after they were forced to be quiet and color pictures of Unicorns. In high school, Rhett was on the basketball team, while Link competed in multiple science competitions. Later, they were roommates at North Carolina State University where they studied engineering. They are now Internet personality broadcasting music videos, skits and other comedic endeavors on www.rhettandlink.com
