"13th Grade"--Graduated Top in its Class
13 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"13th Grade" is a full-length independent film costing only $8000 to produce that has the look of a film that might have cost a thousand or maybe even ten thousand times as much. JJ Garvine wrote and directed a funny and engaging story that brings back memories for all former high school students, and horrifies all those currently waiting for that final day of school...graduation! Garvine, a resident of Delaware, chose local schools and sites around Newark, Delaware to film, which not only saved on production costs, but provided a rich background for his story. The talented cast includes Dustin Diamond from "Saved by the Bell" in a surprising role, and Gervase Peterson from "Survivor," who shows that he can act and not just be a reality show has-been.

Run, do not walk, to check out "13th Grade" at your local theatre that shows independent films, or check out the DVD as soon as possible. Everyone involved in this production should get an "A" for effort.
