Goofs

The popularity of Rebelde - and of Britney Spears "Baby One More Time" video - notwithstanding, it is very unlikely that students at any public school would be permitted to wear attire as revealing as Margo's and Nicole's. Also, it is even less likely that 20-somethings (like David and Company) would be allowed on and off school property without a reservation and/or a security check. See more »

Parents watch out who your little girl is hanging out with !
6 March 1999 | by Against_The_GrainSee all my reviews

What I have to say? I have the fresh image of the film because I saw it just a couple of minutes ago.Wow! Mark Wahlberg is the most JEALOUS boyfriend I ever seen. The part where he beat his girlfriend´s friend was a prelude of Aggression, Hypocrisy, Jealousy & more Aggression!!!! Critically spoken, I think the movie was a little ficticious....We know that David was really mentally perturbed but...how could he be so evil? He was really scary. Poor little girl...what a boyfriend she had uh?

Anyways the movie was good. At least I had fun watching it. I give it a 7.
