student: They got their minds made up about us, Mr. Thackeray.
Mark Thackeray: Then change them.
student: Yeah, right! Maybe that would work where you're from or where you went. You know, you run off to England and you teach in some school and you REALLY think you're something, don't you?
Mark Thackeray: I AM something - everyone is.
student: Well, in this country you're nothin'. It don't matter how many schools you teach in... you and me, we walk down the street and all people are gonna see is black skin.
Mark Thackeray: What do you want them to see?

Just as good as the first.
15 July 2001 | by ser-alSee all my reviews

I saw and loved the original movie To Sir With Love. Sidney Poiter is one of my favorite actors. I really enjoy classics. After watching the original movie for the umpteenth time I was beginning to wonder what ever happened to S.Poiter. Wondering if they ever made a second or would ever make one... then just days after think that, I saw an advertisment for To Sir With Love 2. You can imagine how overjoyed I was. I could hardly wait to see this movie to see if it could be as good as the first. I was very much pleased with it. If you enjoyed the first you will enjoy the 2nd. I am also happy to say that I have passed on, to my very young daughter, my love for the classic movie. As a matter of fact she is at this very moment watching the original To Sir With Love and not for the first time I might add. Sidney Poiter is a very handsome man and a very good actor and everything and I mean everything he has done has been wonderful. And I might add that he looked as young in the 2nd movie as he did in the first. I would love to know where he found the fountain of youth.... but I am sure that is a secret only God knows.
