well it was alright...
29 April 2014 | by ElPolloHermanoSee all my reviews

but i liked the album more. The actors in the film didn't sound like the singers on the album so it wasn't really the same experience. Plus the actors were much younger than Win, Will, Regine, Richard, Sarah and Jeremy. Tim also. The movie was too long for my taste but my dad thought it was OK. My dad is also younger than Win, Will, Regine, Richard, Saraj and Jeremy. Tim is about the same age. The music in the film was really good because it was made by Win, Will, Regine, Richard, Sarah and Jeremy and Tim. The scene where one of the boys meets the girl is exciting because it reminds me of a personal experience. I thought the ending was confusing but that might me because I didn't watch the beginning. I'm pretty sure Will Smith wasn't in the film. What do you guys think? Private message me if I'm wrong! :D The directing was good. I also enjoyed the music by Win and Will and Regina and Jerry and Sara and Rick and Timothy. (When I say Will I don't mean Will Smith. I'm 92% sure he wasn't in the film.) But
