Fabricated plot, thinly veiled as an attempt to help save the "failing public school systems." Gyllenhaal, Davis, and Hunter should not be allowed to act in a film, tv show, commercial or infomercial ever again! I see a bright future for them working as a cashier at Walt-Mart for the rest of their lives! Save Your Money! All this movie does is allow for disgraced, rapist protector Michelle Rhee to spread her vitriol against public school teachers and unions. Also don't believe the hype about the director who calls himself a "Gay Liberal New York Jew." Daniel Barnz is pathetic, high school film students have done better jobs, than he can only attempt to.
