Trivia

Goofs

It is unlikely that John Ehret High School or the cities that it serves (Harvey, Marrero, and Westwego) were flooded during Hurricane Katrina. Ehert is on the West Bank on the Mississippi River (to the south of New Orleans) in Jefferson Parish. Most of the flooding from Katrina occurred in New Orleans proper (Orleans Parish), in St. Bernard Parish to the city's southeast, and in the East Bank sections of Jefferson Parish to the city's west. Most of the West Bank was unaffected by flooding. See more »

Like a exciting thrill ride
16 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hurricane Season was like a exciting thrill ride just waiting to get on. I feel this way because it showed me how all the struggles that New Orleans citizens went through but still made the best of it. This movie had also showed me how your team is your family,and how teamwork is important no matter what. I also noticed some characters like Lil' Wanye,Bow Wow,and China Anne McClain. I think they played their parts well. I couldn't picture anyone better for the parts.

This movie also fits for kids my age and up, and parents as well. That's why I think this movie was interesting.

But my favorite character was Brian Randof played by Robbie Jones. I liked him because he reminds me of me because before no one wanted me on their team or gave me the ball. The reason why was I never passed the ball until I opened my eyes and saw that when I needed help I had four other players just like what happened to Brian.

Another actor I liked was Shad Moss, but you also know him as Bow Wow. I liked him because he showed people that size doesn't matter. Like you could be big and be the worst or you can be small and be the best on the court.

That's what the movie showed me.
