Brief Synopsis – A teenager, inspired by her mother’s stories of her youth decides to create a protest flyer n her school.
My Take on it – Very inspiring film that works despite the fact that it uses very commonly used themes and ideas here.
The story plays out in a fun way and we ca feel the frustration of the characters in the situations that they are in.
The characters are developed slightly and despite still feeling like stereotypes, they still manage to show the kind of effect that they can have on their school and those around them at the same time.
The various antics that the characters pull over the course of the movie work because they are done in a way that helps make the viewer cheer for them to eventually succeed in showing taht high school doesn’t need to feel like a prison camp.
The film’s young cast is great and they help keep the inspirational message of the film in constant momentum as things progress which allows the audience to get more involved in all that happens here.
This is a film directed by Amy Poehler an she once again shows that she has what it takes to be a great director even if she isn’t quite there yet.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Patrick Schwartzenegger admitted that he found it difficult to be so mean to the rest of the cast, and that Amy Poehler helped push him as a director when she thought he was being too nice. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
