Tia and Tamera were excellent
20 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was a wonderful movie. Tia especially was excellent. My friend and I rented a movie, and she was like, "This looks really boring." After she saw it, soon afterwards, we voted what movie she liked best. She spoke two words, "Seventeen" and "Again." This movie (in my book) is 5 stars. Now, I'm the kind of person who allows people to have their own opinion, but really, this movie WAS excellent. I cannot imagine why this is not that popualar. It should be, and I suggest you go see it immeadately. :) Luv to all.
