A great drama about sexual harassment.
11 August 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I was just sitting in front of the TV when this movie started. I didn't expect much, but I watched it anyway since I didn't have anything better to do.

The premise is not too exciting: A cheer leader is sexually harassed by the captain of the Football team, but the school prefers to silence her than to hurt the team's chance to win the big trophy and all that poop... Then she and her family begin the fight for justice!

No murders, no rapes... Mild drama... But then the movie comes up with enough plot twists and developments to make things more interesting. The acting is great and the script is above average. There are some really cool one-liners delivered very well. It won't make you really laugh, it'll make you smile with joy...

Soon enough I found myself being hurt with the cheer leader and smiling like an idiot in her happier moments... This movie is fun, and it made me feel real good. Some
