Audience Reviews for The Color of Friendship

I remember my mom renting this when I first asked her about racism. I didn't see the significance then, but I saw this on TV again last night and was reminded about what an amazing movie this was and the lesson it taught.

The Color of Friendship looks nice on the outside but the characters aren't nearly as interesting as they appear to be.
