User Review

A funny and charming film.

Rating:

I just love to read some of the negative comments on a film like this. This
is a movie about a Las Vegas headliner who is called to help deal with
unruly kids at a Catholic school. You were expecting maybe Schindler's List?
When did it become such a crime just to enjoy a delightful movie packed
with talent all geared toward entertainment?

And what talent. Whoopi Goldberg, Lauryn Hill, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kathy
Najimy, Maggie Smith, James Coburn, Michael Jeter, and more. It's adorable
and it handily meets its goal of being entertaining. All I can say is that
I pity people who have become so jaded, or are so concerned with being cool,
that they can't enjoy such a funny and charming film.
