I feel sorry for the earlier reviewer who was forced to watch this movie in class. It's an important movie, and it is also very fun and quite full of energy and spirit, but anything can be a pain if you have to do it against your will. I would recommend trying this movie again when you are older and have the time. You will enjoy this movie once you start to appreciate the intricacies of adult life. That's a promise!
