Please give it a chance
6 February 2006 | by hakyhiqzSee all my reviews

I mean this film is the most beautiful most wonderful downright enjoyable film i have ever seen it should be in the top 250 i would vote it in there. I looooove the way two people fall in love for each other he likes her not because she is rich, just because he was good friends with her and she made him laugh and he taught her things and how to have fun again and have her dream and how to appreciate poor people when she was babbling on about the party being at a church and why their were chaperones. She taught him you don't need to be rich to be accepted and taught her friends that she didn't care what group he was in and her father that mom married a boy from the barrio and you was poor why don't you give this guy a chance. The boy and father eventually become gr8 friends and he bought him back memories and was good to his family. You see it's a beautiful film i believe you should give this film a chance... Especially people who always tell me why i like crap films... Well you don't understand why i like it and i believe people will agree this film is fantastic. The wedding was fantastic especially when they get revenge on her and the music they played while she was chasing the car was fantastic and the scene when she walks home from Hollywood was fantastic. Most of this film is a lesson it teaches you a lot of things and gives you pleasure while you learn from it. I loved this film i recommend it to everyone. PLEASE GIVE IT A CHANCE
