    This is one of my all time favourite movies. I have been searching for a copy of it the last 5 years and finally found it on YouTube this afternoon after it was allowed to be played in Malaysia. A real movie, which presents real issues. And has a very teen spirit air to it. I would vouch to have this movie screened in high schools around the world. The issues raised in this movie: about teenagers having their own voice is driven in so clearly yet it doesn't bore the teenagers who make up its main target audience. Collapse

    Nicole Richie loyalists are sure to be confounded (along with the rest of us) by Kids in America, the weirdly anti-Bush high school "satire" that is also Richie's big-screen debut.
  2. Has its heart in the right place, but its head seems to be lost in a swirling maelstrom of teen movies that have come before.

    A trite teen comedy burdened with lofty aspirations of rallying adolescent audiences to political action.
