Predictable teen movie is a simple flick

This movie is a pretty predictable teen-romance. There is a lot of bad language, a drive-by, and general gang-activity. Also, there is some teen drinking, smoking, and presenting of fake IDs, and the main character's best friend has a child out of accidental pregnancy. However, it also has the perspectives of under-privelaged teens living in the ghetto. Also, it touches on the difficulties of interracial romance and racism. It's nice to finally see a couple of different races on the big screen. This is not to say it is a good movie...It's actually pretty bad, complete with a rather terrible script.

A wonderful Blue Blood and Blue Gum movie for our wonderful teenagers who grew up with not only MTV, but also The Disney Channel, which has been infiltrated by some nice Jewish chaps that wouldn't let their daughters marry a black man unless his life was wallet was in jeopardy. Double standards.
