Quotes

Luke Weil: Did you ever have an encounter that rubs you the wrong way? It's whoever pisses you off. And I'm up at boarding school. And this kid's from like some shit town in Connecticut. You know, I don't know. I can just say, fuck you, I'm from New York. I can buy your family, piss off. And this is petty, and this is weak. And this is very underhanded, but it's so easy, you know.

stereotyping clash(from a Middle Class Perspective)
19 July 2004 | by (Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This movie won't spoil the well of idealism from which you drink. It is interesting to see the things these kids are conditioned to perceive as stress. They handle most situations in a surprisingly humble manner. Especially the Trump and Johnson children. Regardless of social class, the children with the most parental bonding are consequently the most mature and responsible...i.e., Trump, Johnson. The best example of this is the fact that they respect and admire their parents, as opposed to resenting them and their efforts to bless them financially. Bottom line, parenting/mentoring makes well rounded, responsible children into adults. Not money or social status. Highly recommend.
