dated but good; what you don't see in the news
Since we occasionally (sometimes it seems frequently) hear about blacks and Hispanics living in poverty but almost never hear about whites living in poverty, it's sometimes easy and tempting to think that whites never live in poverty. Nothing could be further from the truth. Andie and her father, both white, live in poverty in what seems like a bad neighborhood, or at least a borderline bad neighborhood. Andie also learns to make do with what she has, and is very creative in the process. Blane also helps her come out of herself, and both have a good time at the prom. While teens may find this movie lame, they'll understand and appreciate the concept.
