Trivia

America Ferrera was originally cast as Mona Gray, but dropped out and Jessica Alba replaced her. See more »

Goofs

When Alba was in class and put a child in a corner by the door she wrote two large numbers on the black board and wanted the children to tell her what sign (greater or less than) to put between them. When the child made a sound to get her attention you could see the less than sign already written on the board, but it was missing after the child from the corner gave the correct answer and the teacher wrote it on the board.

419th Review: The vibe is right, but content is oh so weak
20 May 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

I so wanted to love this; how many films are there about math teachers connecting with their students. It's such a great idea. However, in the execution, the indie vibe goes from off-kilter to off-track and the film is weirdly pompous in its false modesty and humbleness.

Quite frankly after some initial interest it's biggest problem is boredom - neither the script, nor the events, nor the characterization hold the attention - and so what we end up is a lot of loose ends and ideas.

Jessica Alban does a fine job at the slightly emo OCD vibe but we never really connect with the cuteness, and all in all, it was a little too off-kilter for this viewer.

If you like indie films you may enjoy this - we just couldn't connect with it - and found it all trying too hard to be different, instead of using the film to show math as a tool for wider issues.
