A movie I really enjoyed!!!
28 December 2005 | by MrHollywood001See all my reviews

I've seen many films over the years, and Kids in America did have some parts where I thought they were like, "Uh, that could've been deleted," But overall, it was really good. It really has that effect in it, where it can inspire all teens around the world. The writer of the film put parts in it that are really true. I've seen stuff like that happen almost everyday in my school that I go to. When watching this, I felt I was watching a camera just roll through the hallways. It's something I can really relate to, and I like movies with that kind of story. It something interesting, and that can pull my attention easily. It's really easy to relate to problems kids face, and this movie will make it even easier for kids to understand. I give this movie a 9 on a scale of 1-10. "A wonderful teen movie for everyone," would be the review I give it. I think this movie would be worth your money at the movie theater. Good movie, I really enjoyed it.
