Goofs

Ali constantly refers to her Mustang as a "5.0" which is completely impossible for two reasons. One has been pointed out, the 5.0 wasn't available in the 99 to 04 Mustangs, the last time a 5.0 was available in a Mustang was 94-95. To further this mistake Ali's Mustang isn't even represented by the V8 of that generation, but rather the v6 option. See more »

Great acting...A haunting movie that stays with you
17 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie five days ago and I'm still affected by it. Afterwards all I could do was cry for the youth of America, because this isn't just some movie. It really, truly happened. The actors turn in outstanding performances as teenagers with nothing to do but turn to sex and drugs to fill the empty voids in their lives. Nick Stahl is particularly amazing as Bobby, the boarder-line psychotic who tormented his friends until they could take it no more.This is a sad, realistic look at how many teenagers really do act with their peers. Don't look for your typical teenager fare here because you won't find it. The language, sex, and drug use may bother some people, but thats because no one wants to believe that young adults can be this way. Well, I got out of high school two years ago and I can tell you that this is not far from reality. Thats probably why it has affected me so much...because I know that stuff portrayed in this movie really does happen. This is a great movie. Watch it. Then go tell your kids you love them.
