Certainly one of the most entertaining films I've seen in a long time..., 1 May 2008
Author: Zak Green from United States

This film is incredibly entertaining. I was it at a screening last night and was blown away, as was the entire audience. The film profiles 5 different New York City families each from varied socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds, and each attempting to navigate through the ultra-competitive world of getting their 3 year old into an elite Manhattan nursery school. The steps each well-meaning (but desperate) parent goes through lends itself to many many laughs but has many heartfelt and poignant moments as well. The film really takes the viewer through an intense emotional ride that is very rewarding and interesting. The subject matter is quite original, I know of no other movie that has tackled this topic in the past. It works very well as a date movie but just as well as a movie for families and friends to enjoy whether or not they have children. It has true universal appeal. I highly recommend it.
