A wonderful movie you should see

The movie is called Kids in America.
It’s about a group of high school students band together to peacefully stick it to their overbearing principal. But its more about that... its about civil disobedience and about activism, about kids standing up for the same rights so many fight every day to defend.

Id tell more of the plot but if I did that youd miss out, this movie spoke to me and was wonderfully done.
If you haven’t seen it yet, go rent it.

Just watched the movie, and it really did kick ass lol...My favourite was Chuck (the fat kid) ...That guy was hillarious.

The movie was funny, and had a good message in there too...It's pretty similar to "The Perfect Score"

I dunno, RT wasn't a huge fan.

I know you're going to say "Are you some zombie that only listens to the critics? Think outside the box!"

Except that movie critics tend to be intelligent people, and they tend to agree with me. So sometimes they save me 2 hours and $5.




On a sidenote, rent a movie called "Elephant". Its also about high school kids. Beware, it is mostly very slow, but if you don't know already, the end will shock you to your very core. (and its not a horror movie, thats not what i mean).

Critics don't know anything jp...I enjoyed it, although I do agree with what some people say, it was a copy of a couple of other movies, it just had a better message IMO.
