Have you ever laughed at the serious parts of a movie?
29 August 2007 | by BettlejuiceSee all my reviews

Sweet 15 It tells the story of a girl about to turn 15 years old (which is as important as 16 is for American girls) and having to face the realities of life. Problems turn up with her father who is having problems at work and she meets a new boy from the wrong side of the tracks. I'm sorry to say that it really cant be summed up any better than that. The problems in the movie come from it just being too silly to take seriously. The movie treats itself like an epic instead of a forgotten movie seen only in high school classrooms. That is where I first saw the movie and my classmates loved every second of watching it, but for all the wrong reasons. Sweet 15 sets itself up to be knocked down and high school students just wont waist an opportunity like that.
