It's an interesting and entertaining film about high school kids rebelling against their principal. But unfortunately all their causes are filtered through the liberal Hollywood writer's viewpoint without much respect for any alternative views. The kids gripe about the hypocrisy of authority without ever addressing their own. A mass same sex kissing scene involving dozens of teens will offend many - maybe most - viewers. The film might have been very effective without that, but as it is, it turns away anyone who doesn't agree with the agenda without a chance to win them over. In spite of good acting by Gregory Smith and others, the comedy and other good qualities of the film don't overcome that. At least, if you're not homophobic or offended by condoms, you can enjoy it as a light comedy.

The film offers viewers an all too brief journey into politics and playfulness in a public school with an overbearing principal running for political office. She expels the male lead and Mr. D, voted teacher of the year for 5 years running and the one teacher who challenges his students to think, is fired and as expected the students rebel. A somewhat predictable story of teenage angst and a 2005-view of sexual orientation. A public school ruthless in its policing duties, the protagonist-principal has no desire or purpose other than maintaining the free range of her own narcotic narcissism, spewing exclusivity and dominance over the intellect, conscience, human potential of the students and teachers at her every turn. Unreceptive to interrogation, she cannot form or tolerate new ideas, try as she might to shape the thoughts of others, or tolerate independent thought. Yet there it is - a diamond glitters: Emily playing an ABC (American-born Chinese, third generation) and a scene stealer of the first order, predatory, yet sentimental and sexy. We recommend you see Emily, oops!, the film.
Kids in America is am AMAZING, original movie, with a wonderful storyline, an intelligent cast, and an amazing director. The story, inspired by true events, was different from any other movie I've ever seen. It is an inspirational comedy, whose cast is filled with extraordinary actors. Alex Anfanger, (Lawrence Reitzer) was hilarious, and stole every scene he was in. Gregory Smith (Holden Donovan) was a powerful lead character, who continued to strive for what he believed in. This outstanding cast played extremely believable characters, who really made the movie interesting. The co-writer Josh Stolberg was unbelievable in his directorial debut, really capturing the essence of each character, and making each scene work. I thought this was an amazing, inspirational, smart teen comedy, with a good message, a rarity in today's Hollywood, where every movie is identical. I cannot wait to see this movie again. I would recommend this to anyone who is tired of unoriginal movies. I give it a 10/10.
If free speech, and standing up for what you believe in is Liberal, then this film is farther left than Farenheit 9/11
