great for classroom use!
12 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I disagree with the negative comment about the acting in the movie. It is very typical for a "G" rating and for a theme which is decent for classroom use! My students have all enjoyed this video! It's great for several reasons: showing the hardship of illegals who work and pay taxes, showing how Hispanics respect their parents, discussing how important the 15th birthday is to typical American students who've never heard of such. I can't believe that someone made a negative comment about this film! It's great! The acting is fine. It wasn't trying to win the Oscar for best acting. I think it does so much more for the plight of these people than many Oscar winners, anyway! I guess that person missed the point of the movie since he was "doozing". Too bad. I think the movie is awesome since it tries to let "typical Americans" see the other side of life. So many foreigners want to come here and many have been here for a long time. So, amnesty is a real issue and thus the film is very appropriate for this day and age.
