"I'M GONNA SWEEP THOSE HOOKERS RIGHT OFFA' THE STREET..."
15 August 2000 | by myxedupSee all my reviews

Kathleen Quinlan as suburban do-gooder. She's on a mission to help run-away teens off of the streets, and into her over-crowded home. The taming of the wild street children proves quite a challenge.

Lots of teens-in-despair here. Lots of 80's fashions (hair, make-up, bracelets, Oh My)

Watchable only because the movie's musical theme is Pat Benatar's "Hell is for Children".
