good for kids 11 and up

I like that the main character cares about his family and that he doesn't take drugs. The only thing that I am concerned about is that there is drugs.

Ritchie

Lou Diamond Phillips does a wonderful job portraying young Ritchie Valens. He does not do the singing for his part. The story is well thought out, and they movie crew was close with the Valenzuela family. Good message.

The worst in it is the main character dies in a plane crash (not shown, but heard on radio), siblings have fistfights, and people have parties and get drunk.

This movie is very good but very very sad at the end. I Watched this movie over the summer not really knowing what it was about with my mom and my siblings. I was not warned about the ending. However before the end there was some foreshadowing now that I think about it.But anyways the songs in this movie are really good.There is drinking and drug use in this movie as well as sex but nothing a 14 year old cant handle.
