User Reviews

I love my friend Kennedy
13 April 2020 | by applesauce-58589See all my reviews

I loved this movie so much. It was as realistic and true to how it happened as possible and those bashing it need to know the family before they have a say in how it happened. royjsampilo: I'm sorry that their true story isn't Hollywood Plastic enough for you. Bookwormsrus: Basically, you're saying that you would have liked the movie more if the casting was false to make them black, right? That's what it sounds like. iamoliviacole: The family helped with the casting. The movie is how it happened. When you can say that you went to school in Plain City Utah at Fremont High School than you can say that the movie was unrealistic and "BAD" as you put it.

Stop bashing on a true story about someone you don't know. Not everything has to be Hollywood Plastic.
