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.
