Her friend, also teacher in the school, got the temporary job for her. After a terrible reception from the students, she tries unconventional methods of teaching (using karate, Bob Dylan lyrics etc) to gain the trust of the students.Written by

Michelle Pfeiffer was pregnant during production. Although shot out of sequence like most films, it becomes apparent when methods are used to hide the actress' stomach. Methods such as long skirts and bulky sweaters along with scenes where Pfeiffer is shown carrying large objects were used. See more »

Last year I saw this film at our English class which was written by LouAnne Johnson and directed by John Smith.
In the film, Michelle Pfeiffer starred LouAnne Joihnson, a teacher who starts working in a high school where students don't listen to their teachers and only do the things that they like. So LouAnne has to break the rules and by doing so, she changes their lives. For all this students start to love her.
Dangerous Mind is an excellent and common film which doesn't need special effects to catch our attention, because only with the characters, the simple clothes they wear and the wonderful story, as well as a nice sound track, we can get hooked.
I recommend people to see this film because it has things that can happen in our lives and the drama the film has is very convincing.
