This movie has issues.
to say that this movie deals with difficult issues is complete BS. the 5
minutes devoted in the plot to deal with sub-issues of teen pregnancy,
divorce, and father daughter relationships hardly qualifies. honestly, the
first several times i watched this movie, i turned it off an hour into it
because it was so boring. i had to come back to it and watch it from the
beginning several times before i could stop falling asleep. the only reason
i actually watched it the whole way through is because i wanted to make an
educated comment here. someone earlier said that it was a "sleeper". they
were right... but i don't think they meant it the way i
the movie never actually "deals" with racisim or even "bi-racial"
relationships... there is not enough substance in the acting or plot to
challenge the viewer for more than 2 minutes. (though i suppose that the
audience that the author was trying to affect would only have a 2 minute
attention span anyhow)
julia stiles disappointed me in this role. i know that it wasn't entirely
her fault, and she only had so much that she was given to work with... so
maybe her agent should be stripped naked, smeared in peanut butter, and
taped to a tree in the middle of montana woods? this would certainly prove
more interesting than the movie.
personally, all of my black friends are suburbanites... so i can't say much
about the culture that the director was trying to capture... but to be
honest, i was a little offended by the way that he applied a number of
sterotypes recognized by me (a white male) as "negro". he really didn't
paint the afro american culture in a very good light.
there are other movies that do a much better job deliberating over the
/ white issue. i think that Finding Forester is one that at least
the viewer long enough to make them think about people of a different
culture in a different way than is status quo.
this movie fails miserably to capture what i can only assume was the
i'd give it 0 out of 10 (i thought the dancing was horrible)
this movie is sure to make it to the bargain bin at the dollar store.
4 for $1.00!!! (right along side Annie, Killer Clowns from Outer Space, and
about a thousand or so copies of THE STAND (sorry stephen)).

LOve this movie.
Awful acting, lame plot
This movie is one of the worst I've seen. It has no redeeming value, as the
actors never click, and the plot is one cliche after another. Don't waste
your money on this one. I was sorry I took my daughters to see this. My
nine-year old was bored throughout, and my ten-year old was unfortunately
enthralled. And Julia Stiles couldn't even dance!.
