| Cutting satire.
This movie gets it done!

A damn funny look at the intersection of race, class, and teenage babymommadrama in an suburban high school in the early 1990s (right around the time of Mike Tyson, OJ Simpson, the Million Man March). A cutting satire of all those white kids trying to be hood, featuring a lovable sociopath as a protagonist. It is a hard movie to wrap your headaround, especially because the parts that filled me with with the most nostalgia, were also the parts where the satire cut the deepest. That said, the spot on early 1990s details brought tears to my eyes (just not sure if I was cringing or laughing).

Definitely worth watching twice.
