My favortie character in the movie was Callie Roberts. She was such a smart, strong person. I felt sorry for her having to be in a class like that.
If you haven't seen Dangerous Minds, you have to rent it. You won't regret it.
I remember, eerily enough, when this movie came out in 1995. Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" came out in August of that year and was an instant hit, topping the Billboards for two, three months straight. I was only 13 then.
The movie itself was really good. The acting was great and the depiction of inner-city life was stellar. I thought it was a shame that it was only given two stars by the Movie Rating Association, but what do they know?
Everyone gets to make choices in life regardless of their situation. One must have the drive and ambition to make the right ones. One line that Ms. Johnson has in the film is the response to one student's statement "If we get on the bus, we have to put up with you!" She responds, "Yes, but that is still a choice. You can either [stay where you're at] or get on that bus. That may be a choice you don't like but that's still a choice. There are no losers in this classroom."
I also like her line of "As of right now, everyone in here has an 'A'. It's up to you to keep it."
There's a lot of rough language, and rough characters... but a much more believable storyline than other movies of this same type. It seems all it takes is one person to care to make a difference, where others may see no light. Michelle Pfeiffer's character is that light... and if you've ever asked yourself "what can one person do," this may be a very rewarding or enlightening movie for you - as it was for me.

This is a great movie as it deals with the kids that don't fit in the regular school system and the special teachers it takes to connect to them. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Christine Stephens
