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.

I highly recommend this movie
3 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too saw this about a year ago in Los Angeles.

My son had seen it at his school and was very excited about it – he and his friends thought it was great. Apparently they were showing it in schools as a learning tool.

When I saw it was showing in theaters, I went out of curiosity. I enjoyed it very much!

I agree with all Theresa Shell's comments here . . . it should be shown in all middle and high schools as well as PTA meetings throughout the country. … A gentle yet entertaining way of expanding our thought processes toward tolerance and understanding.

I understand that this movie was made shortly after a young high school student in Southern California had, because he was gay, been killed by a fellow student.

High school years are such a hard time for so many kids trying to struggle with all kinds of social stresses; being gay just one example, it can be just feeling unattractive or being very shy, or over weight, or under weight, or family struggles or feeling shut out of a group they admire, or breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend, or being made fun of for any reason, or embarrassment over some thing that other people are not even aware of. It goes on and on. We all need to learn to accept others for who they are and realize, we all are struggling with who we are.
