Teenager Alison Watson is helping to promote a campaign to fight adult illiteracy in her town. Mr. Ruigh is teaching classes, and all the students are women. Alison's father Bill Watson works at a factory which will soon modernize, and workers will need to read and use computers on the job. Bill doesn't want his daughter pitching the literacy program to his workers, because he fears they will be targets of layoffs if supervisors realize they are illiterate.

Quality flick
23 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie really had something going for it, of course that was up until opening credits came up.

Being a huge joey travolta fan, i was expecting something quality like his previous roles in three ninjas or the sequel.

I was really expecting to see another Oscar performance by Joey but he really let me and the rest of his fans down on this one.

Where were the special effects, and the charismatic acting. And what is this 60 minute crap. Who does he think he is, throwing us this short story when we all know he's capable of masterpieces!

As of now i'm extremely disappointed with Joey. If I was his big brother I'd start kicking his ass like he did to that other guy in Broken Arrow!

Just remember Joey this one sucked, but you know. What do you do when you fall off the horse...........you get back on!

GOOD LUCK JOEY!!!! one love big up from all your friends up in the NYC
