This is a fantastic film. I watched it a few years ago and really enjoyed it. For a while I couldn't find it, but it turns out that Netflix--that wonder of wonders--carries it. It has a great exploration into the original b-boys. The comments by the MCs are fabulous as well. I'm basically trying to fill up space here. What I really need is the rating--but the comment thing requires ten lines. The movie really IS fantastic but I just need to know--what's the rating on this film? I want to show it in my classroom, but need that info first. If anyone knows, I'd really appreciate your input. Maybe it is listed on the case? (probably wishful thinking, right?) Thanks!
