Gap Power!!!
22 October 2000 | by thatmanfrankSee all my reviews

I saw this documentary in a high school film class as an example of a documentary. It is a positive light hearted look at women dealing with their gap teeth. For those of you who like to make fun of people's misfortune, you might like this. For all the others who want to check out or study a good documentary, this is for you. Yes it is an odd choice, but i don't think it is a waste of time, like some of the c**p i have seen lately.
