Author: Charity Grace Campbell (Charitywork@yahoo.com) from Goldsboro, North Carolina

You have to be in the right mood to watch and enjoy this movie. It's actually quite good though. The movie is based on a true story of a few awesome girls who want to have a voice. The movie is funny and charming with fabulous acting. If you're in the right mood for an awesome uplifting story that rings GIRL POWER then see this groovy flick. 8/10
