Surprisingly accurate!
14 December 2004 | by Ash923leeSee all my reviews

I watched this movie with my dad. He did a bunch of stuff when he was younger, but kids weren't as amoral back then as they are now. The sad part for me was that nothing in the movie shocked me.I'd been there and done that in a few cases...but never to the extreme that those kids took it. I never hung out with people that acted like that, and i've never publicly exploited myself like many of those girls did. It was really sad for me to realize how accurate the movie was though. It makes the movie "Thirteen" look like a Disney movie. The movie makes me want to lock any future kids I end up having in a box, and not let them out until they are 30. It's definitely a movie parents should see. I've had way too many friends who's parents live this life of ignorance. They turn their backs and deny that their children could be doing anything wrong. It's true that you live and you learn, but the scary thing is is that not all of the kids grow up and wake up.
