Nobody would say this is a great movie. However, it isn't as bad as some have made it out to be. One reviewer said it has the feel of an 'after school special' [See: http://www.amazon.com/After-School-Specials-Rossie-Harris/dp/B0009WPLSK/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1247020636&sr=1-5 ], and I agree. The theme of interracial friendship is especially interesting because the director, Jamal Joseph, is a former black panther (essentially, a black separatist who seems to have turned around while in prison for his black panther crimes).

My feeling was that this movie is like a lot of the so-called Christian movies - it seems to want to jam in too many 'lessons.' Hence, not enough development is given to any aspect of the movie to create a strong impact. A rifle shot is much more focused than a shotgun shot; this movie tends to take the shotgun approach (unlike the after school specials, which always had a single lesson to be learned). There is a bit of bad language, but not nearly as much as most movies dealing with the inner city. It may not be a movie to really seek out, but it is worth watching if one has the opportunity.

Actually I came across this movie in a different way. I was hoping to download 30 Days the tv show by Morgan Spurlock but instead I got a Basketball movie. I was quite upset because I wanted to watch 30 Days the TV show but decided to give the movie a chance. It showcased Da Brat and Taye Diggs so I thought, hey this cant be so bad, right?

I was wrong. Most of the movie I laughed through because the movie was so poorly acted. In scenes that are supposed to be serious I was laughing because the white kid in the movie, Jason (Charlie Neal), was so horrible in acting. He is doofy looking and doesn't seem to fit well with the movie. Taye Diggs has a small role in the movie and everything was on Hill Harper's performance. He did an excellent job with what was there and was the movie's star.

As for the movie itself. It's not like a movie more as an afterschool special. Everyone learns their lesson, everyone wins, and racism is beat. I'm sorry, nothing is that picture perfect. We all have reservations. The portray of the ghetto is way out of the ordinary. White cops stopping the white kid and no gang violence toward the white kid. Just seems out of place. It's more of a feel good movie and it shows because they gloss over the negative stuff very quickly.

I'd never heard of this movie before and at least got to experience it but it's overly bad. Poor acting, bad storyline, and emotionless characters make this movie pure garbage. If they would have had a bigger budget and better acters, maybe. But of course that's a big maybe because the story itself was seriously flawed.

This is a movie that should be mandatory in all schools. It addresses racial profiling, bullying, humanity, friendship, what you see is not the necessarily real or the complete story, Things children should be taught but are sadly, not. I saw so many lessons on so many levels that to list them is only my opinion so I truly hope that enough parents, teachers, coaches, and people get the message. Sure would make the world a safer and better place to live in and love in. 30 Days is not enough. I needs to be a pattern for life.
