Wonderful, beautiful romantic comedy
22 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with this movie from the first time I saw it back in the 90's.

It was hilarious!

Chris Wild is undeniably sexy as teenager Kevin, struggling between his white and black friends in a highly Racist town and high school, only wanting to play his drums! And I just loved Beverly Hills who played cute, sexy Melissa, a teenage woman ahead of her years in wisdom, beauty, and love.

The comical antics of the Knights and Emeralds, and the flowing scenes are nonstop, watching the rival marching band masters struggling painfully to keep tensions at bay as an upcoming competition threatens the death of them all. Turn on the cackling, sexy marching majorette Emeralds, and you've really got a handful.

This film is a must-see.
