Storyline

"Goodbye, Miss 4th of July" is the inspiring true-life drama of 17-year-old Niki Janus. After fleeing persecution in Greece, Niki and her family immigrate to West Virginia and begin living the American Dream. Among their friends is Big John Creed, a wise and helpful handyman.

Full of courage and passion, Niki challenges the powerful Klan and, at the same time, must overcome her own fears to help the townspeople survive a horrible flu epidemic.

piece of crap, but worth it
29 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

ok, admittedly, this movie bites, hard. it's sappy and predictable and well, really moralizing, but have you met mr janus? oh my god, if you are going to see this movie, honestly, call Christopher janus first. he was my history teacher sophmore year for modern european hist AP, and the movie is pointless without knowledge of him. he's insane, but in a laughable way. if you can, get him to watch it with you, we saw it at the end of the year, and his comments were priceless. ok, quick tangent, but it's janus' favorite joke- a crocodile walks into a bar and orders a scotch. he looks at it and sheds tear before gulping it down. the bar tender turns to him and says, "why the long face?" (hahahahahah, oh, but wait, it gets better). now a bear come into the bar. he looks even more glum then the crocodile. he sits down at the bar and orders a scotch and gulps it down in one drink as well. the bar tender turn to him and says "whats wrong?" the bear just looks at him sadly and and sighs. the bar tender looks at him and says "why the long pause?" bwahahahaha, get it paws-pause? it's nothing without the hand movements. anyway, see the movie, if you can sit through it, you'll be amused for days after.
