An excellent YA movie
Remember when family movies or children's movies or teen movies were all over the place and no one bashed them for being such? An American Werewolf in London. The Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes. Teen Wolf. Lord Love a Duck. The Breakfast Club. Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Heathers. Revenge of the Nerds. Sixteen Candles...
But slowly, year by year, movies became something that only the smart, cool, fully grown but before middle-age people were allowed to enjoy and all else was trash, not good enough, stupid, too silly, not serious enough, not accurate enough.
This isn't the greatest YA story, but it is definitely a good young story. So be young and wave buh-bye-bye to the people who think only their preferences are allowed.
