Every once in a while what appears to be the entire student body pours out into the street to do song-and-dance numbers, some of which are cheerful enough, but all of which break faith with the film's realistic premise.

The film is cut at such a frenzied pitch that it's often possible to believe (mistakenly) that something significant is going on.

Alan Parker has come up with an exposure for some of the most talented youngsters seen on screen in years. There isn't a bad performance in the lot.

It's a crack at the American Dream which carries all the exhilaration and depth of a 133-minute commercial break.
