This movie was awesome. I loved it because it has lots of emotion and it's all because a kid has a terrible school and needs a new one so his mom and a teacher help and I thought that was great. This movie is all about a kid who has a terrible school. So his mom and a teacher that works at the school think it's a bad school so they go against the school to try to make a better one. They have to go through a lot to help the mom's daughter as well as the other kids at the school. Some of the main characters in the movie are Jamie, Malia, Nona and Michael. My favorite character is Jamie because she cares so much about her daughter that she works her butt off to make a new school for her daughter and to shut down the other school named Adams. How she worked her butt off is by writing down tons of paperwork and instead of sleeping she had to go to every house to see if they could team up with her. Luckily she had a partner named Nona. I could not pick a favorite part because the movie was so good that the whole movie was my favorite part. If I had to pick a favorite I would probably say when Jamie had a big party to try to convince people to go against the school. There were cookies, a news team, shirts, FREE rulers, and to top it all off Jamie gave a speech on why they should shut down Adams and build a new school. I would recommend this movie for ages 7 and up because it's really made for an older audience. I still liked it a lot and I think that my brother might like it too and he's 7, so 7 and up is good. The moral of the movie is really good and can teach people a lot. Go out and see this movie when it comes out in theaters on September 28. Anthony Aranda, age 10, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
