This is not the one
25 August 2005 | by mike-marchantSee all my reviews

While Helen Hunt uses Angle dust in this movie it is not the one where she jumps from the window. She jumps from the window after snorting Angel Dust in another after school special titled Desperate Lives. That being said this film still rules. While it is definitely not one of the finest or funniest of the After School Specials it still gets the job done.

Whether you are a cynic looking for a good laugh from a made for TV version of refer madness or if you just want to relive those halcyon afternoons of racing home from school to see what ABC would come up with next I would recommend this one as definite must see.
