This movie was touted as being The Breakfast Club of the 90's. I don't think it is quite that but I can see why it is compared as such. I do have a few problems with the story as it has a few weak points in it. I think at a point in the movie the story could go in a bunch of different directions and I was kind of disappointed by the direction it choose to go in. I also think the years that have gone by since this film was made show a clear change in the times. The girls would have gotten more support from parents and the school. I am not saying that things like this don't happen but when it does I think society listens a little more now than they did in 1996. I have no problem with the time I spent watching this film but unless you find this DVD on a sales rack I wouldn't spend a whole lot of money on it.
