"This Is The Life", is a song that features on the film's original soundtrack, and is performed by 'Wendy And Lisa' In the 1980's, both of these artists were from Prince's band 'The Revolution', and even acted alongside him, in his movie, "Purple Rain". If you listen carefully to the music for "This is The Life" and "Purple Rain", you will notice, that they both have exactly the same music in their intro. See more »

One thing I've learned through th years is that use your own opinion when it comes to movies. Just because someone says it a bad movie doesn't quite mean you wont like it. Dangerous Minds is an excellent movie. I've read reviews on this movie and saying that this was just another Hollywood movie. Their wrong! I watched this movie and I was really impressed by it. For me it was truly inspirational. Michelle Pfeiffer was excellent in this movie. There are some who says that Michelle isn't tough enough to play the character, but sorry to burst their bubble but it's called acting. You can be the weakest person on earth but if your truly a good actor then you can make anyone believe your a tough guy or girl. The music was awesome. The cast was great. The Plot and script was exceptional. I recommend this movie to anyone. You wont be disappointed. I sure wasn't.
