Very fun, violent, and sometimes funny movie. Great cast and great acting as well.

Great role models

Enjoyable movie for older teens/adults

I enjoyed the plot and feel of this movie, too bad they had to ruin it with too much violence, some language and a questionable gay relationship section. It was funny and moved very well, the story was cute.
