Very good film.
26 January 2010 | by ndrew1985See all my reviews

You gotta be sh**ting me. Anyone that says these situations aren't believable is full of crap. This has a very interesting and different plot from most movies that are in the same genre. This gives insight from child's perspective and for me had a lot more thought provoking material than most movies.

Watching this movie brought back some childhood memories. i really enjoyed the music and dialog. If you haven't seen this movie. don't take these dip shits advice that this movie is horrible,horrendous,etc.

This is actually one of my favorite movies. To anyone that grew up poor or in a bad neighborhood would be able to appreciate this. I thought this was far better than Boyz N the hood but Hey thats just my opinion
