  Recommend watching, despite slightly unrealistic last scene

| | See all KSlater's reviews (4)

A beautifully realised film about coming of age and coming to terms with who you are. Even supporting characters were well written and played, adding realism and depth to the film. The only downside for me was the slightly unbelievable and unrealistic scene right at the end (I can't go into detail so as not to spoil it for those who haven't seen it)- but this shouldn't put people off watching it. Definitely left a good feeling behind and I found myself really feeling for these characters throughout and wanting things to work out for them.

  My favourite film

This film is my all time favourite. I first saw it in the cinema (twice) when it came out, but I haven't seen it for a few years as I only have it on video. So pleased to see it here on dvd. It manages to be hilariously funny whilst dealing with difficult issues and takes you on a real emotional rollercoaster. Love, love, love this film!

I've watched this film so many times now, the 2 boy leads are brilliant, Linda Henry is fantastic as the hard-as-nails but sensitive mum, but to me the real star is Tameka Empson. She is superb as the loopy Mama Cass-a-holic neighbour Leah. You've got to watch this film just to see her, despite the contrived ending.
