Has a good message, even if it is not technically that sound.

It was very late at night when I turned this movie on. I had decided to check it out because TV told me that Kate Hudson was in it. The first scene I saw was one of the first, the baseball game where Jesse is introduced. For a minute I was pondering changing the channel, but then I noticed a very special cameo. The man announcing the base ball game was none other than Ken Kesey. I watched the rest of the movie waiting to see if he would pop up again, but he did not. It turned out that the movie was not that bad, so it worked out alright. It has an excellent message about prejudice and coming of age. Where it falls short is in the writing mostly. The acting has a few short comings as well. The directing is solid, but presents the movie in a straight forward, no frills way. This wold be a good family movie, even though there is a bit of swearing.
