Fun movie for mature teens and older

I watched this with my 13 year old daughter last night. She is an avid reader of young adult novels in which violent things happen, people die, evil exists, unselfish love exists, heroes fight for what they believe in despite high odds and usually prevail despite others around them perishing, teens kiss and/or make out, etc. She is able to take these things in stride and to discern what parts of the novels serve to entertain or to teach. She loved this movie and understood it was just for fun, recognized the "movie magic" in reference to certain parts of this film that were fun but laughably unrealistic. I'm sure it would have been rated PG-13 (maybe minus some language, but we watched it on AMC and they dubbed out the swearing, which was great) if it had been released today.

Awesome movie!

Love this movie! Saw it after there was a joke about it in PSYCH. Awesome movie definite must see. Bad role models: the bomber (DUH). But the main character is a good role model because he does everything he can to try to save the people on the bus; and his friend(poor guy) tries his best 'till his end.
