ZZZZZZZZ! Huh? Oh sorry....

Mona Lisa Smile was a very dull movie. It was also a stareotype according to Wellsley Alumni who were in school that year, they say that wasn`t at all what was going on! Julia Roberts isn`t all that entertaining at all. Julia Stiles was very good. She was a very strong charactor. Overall, I have to say I would not see this movie again.

Good acting, bad message.

This movie was...typical in the sense that young, educated females are tossing out the old ways (Better ways)! and becoming independent and self-centered. Yes, the acting was exemplary but the message was very, "real women don't need men." I think that parents should pause and think, "Is this movie telling my child good values?" In my opinion it does not. The media today is telling young girls that having relations before marriage is alright, which this movie clearly represents. The world needs more movie that are wholesome, yet fun. We need to get back to the days where girls had grace, poise, and propriety

It's not as bad as it seems

This is coming from a 14 year-old who is a little bit closer to this age group... Kids learn about "the Birds and the Bees" when they are about 10 or so...right? (I learned it in 5th grade). The worst "sexual inappropriateness" is covered in that awkward speech that you give your child... There isn't even that much of it. Not to mention the powerful message included into this movie... I'll admit that the 1950's sexism theme might be lost on your child, but I still think that this is a fantastic movie worth sharing to you whole family. I think that it is time for parents to realize that their kid knows little bit more than they let on...
