I was pretty excited for this second Degrassi movie. Mostly because it focused on the first generation of characters and the new characters had less story. But in the end...the new generation was much more interested.
Basically, it's summer for the Degrassi kids and they're all going their separate ways. Spinner and Jane are supposed to be together but Spinner finds out Jane cheated on him months ago so they break up. Emma is back and long story short, she blows up the dot accidentally, costs Spinner his job and they end up getting married à la Las Vegas. This storyline was extremely disappointing and, literally, made no sense. First of all, Jane and Spinner were one of Degrassi's best couples just because of their great chemistry and well developed relationship. Breaking them up out of the blue and matching Emma with Spiinner is insane because Emma and Spinner had talked like what...8 times before this movie? Oh sure that makes total sense. It only makes it worse that they didn't annul the wedding.
Now for the new generation. It's Holly J and Declan's summer of love and Fiona is more than a bit left out and...jealous? We find out that Fiona has a bit of an unhealthy obsession with her twin brother and takes out her revenge of on Holly J...and let's just say the results are very shocking and the most interesting to happen since the season 8 finale. Good job to Charlotte Arnold and Landon Liboiron who shine in the little movie.
So it has it's good and it's bad...Very well done apart from, of course, the Emma and Spinner storyline. I hope they continue that story if Miriam and Shane decide to come back to the show one day.
