Interesting stuff.
18 December 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Well, I think this movie was pretty good! Some bits were...okay, but most were good. It was an interesting story, and everyone has to watch the funny dance scene! It's sooo great! I am really amazed that it was written by a 13 year old. Wow. Gotta love everyone's clothing too. Hehe.
