Trivia

Film critic Roger Ebert gave the movie a one-star rating, but admitted that he already walked out after 8 minutes. After receiving heavy criticism for rating a movie without having the courtesy to watch it completely, he went back to see the movie in its entirety, and promised to 'never, ever' do it again.

A Must See Movie!!!!
1 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You absolutely must see this movie. I saw it at the closing gala for Outfest and it is amazing. The story is funny, heartwarming, pertinent and deals with a subject that we and our children live with every day in our world. And, it deals with it with great honesty, love and heart. The film deals with adolescent self acceptance and tolerance and shows the importance of people working together to achieve common goals. I think it should be requisite viewing at every middle and high school as well as every PTA in the country. Stewart Wade has written a beautiful story that is brought to life by a stellar cast. Nothing short of fantastic.
