Best movie ever!!!!

This movie is sooooo good!

F-I-N-A-L-L-Y---- True Story and awesomely played.

I have been waiting for this movie on ITunes! I love this movie! A great story about a principal who changed a school, that was considered "a jungle". Drugs, Crime, and Gangsters turned a school into something awful and Joe Clark turned it around. This is truly an inspiring story on what one man can do.


This movie is amazing! It's very inspiring. I am a high school student and I am recommending this movie to my civics, through film, teacher!
