I don't understand why this movie got such terrible reviews. I mean, it wasn't extraordinary or anything like that, but it certainly wasn't terrible. From what I'd read about it I was expecting it to be schmaltzy and pointless and while it had its moments, it kept my attention throughout, even with some of the unnecessary, predictable story lines and plot points. A lot of people seem to think of this as the female version of Dead Poets Society, and while I can understand the comparison, Dead Poets Society did this type of story much better. I really think this movie could have been great if it had just taken a little more risks and hadn't fizzled out at the end. Then again, maybe I just have an affinity for movies set in schools in the 1950s and my judgment is biased, meaning this movie actually is terrible. I don't know. All I know is I was expecting this girls to start calling out "o captain! my captain!" to Julia Roberts as she was driving away. So really, I just went away from this movie wanting to watch the better version of it made in 1989.
