| A rating of 7.9? You gotta be kidding me!
I don't want to sound polemic, but I have a strong suspicion that a lot of "Twilight"-fans went wild rating this movie. Don't get me wrong. It's a solid drama about a girl that got raped and is isolated and alienated from her friends and family... but it's really not that touching. There's nothing to take away from this other than a slight feeling of pity for the main character. "Speak" doesn't rise above your average TV drama. Yes, actually this feels like an extended episode of "Joan Of Arcadia".

So, no, I didn't hate this movie, but I expected more. A LOT more. A rating of 7.9 for "Speak" is the definition of overrated.
