for 2000:

truly this is a rare treasure from the Disney Channel
it's a big risk considering the story takes place in the 70's and racial discrimination is still present in society
but it's an amazing feat watching these two girls from different worlds learn the true meaning of understanding, friendship, and love no matter what color they are
it's very insightful, educational, socially and culturally relevant, quite the extraordinary true story of integration
racism is still around and it has to stop
this movie from DC makes that pretty clear with bravery and sincerity

It has a good message, due for a remake.

Unfortunately, the accents, the score and the poor acting are as naive as the young characters it portrays. The "South African" lead is American and never has your television seen a more atrocious attempt at an even recognisably South African accent, even Oscar-less Leonardo di Caprio was more fruitful in his endeavours. It is as offensive as the sort of bigotry the film attempts to expose, to cast the South African maid as a generic African, without any consideration for the regional particulars of KwaZulu Natal or South Africa as a whole, thereby reinforcing the idea that all Africans are the same. A possibly well-intentioned exercise in Western ignorance.

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.

One of the few Disney Channel movies that is actually pretty creative and soulful.

It has the touching points to show the public, to be better than other mediocre disney channel films. It's not great, it's just "Money Well Spent"

One of Disney's better made-for-TV films. It's realistic in the sense that some teenagers don't realise things about certain countries, especially race. The ending was a little too "we can make a difference," an ending that Disney does well. While I understand why they promote it, it's bordering on unrealistic and it gets annoying the older you get.
