    Takes its cues from the musical dramas of the '70s, but this otherwise engaging young-adult romance never quite catches Saturday night fever.

    The most traditional of Hollywood romances, in that it's resolutely about nice people with nice problems.
  3. While it flirts with "After School Special"-ness, at least has the courage to address racial and cultural cliches with a degree of honesty.
