Education is an equal grueling torture for the students as well for the faculties. Also for parents, and for governments. Well, life basically is a grueling torture for all, right? This movie overdramatizes and overexaggerates school stereotypes—lame teachers, nazi teachers (literally!), slutty girls, trash mouthed boys, absentee overbearing parents—A LOT, but their underlying troubled psyche the filmmakers try to portray are not exactly untrue.
My Rating: 5/10
