Audience Reviews for The Truth About Youth


Now that they've got the page up for this movie I can't hardly remember it. I gave it a low rating at the time I saw it, so I must not have been very impressed by it. This is a romantic drama, and it has a couple of good actor, which was probably the reason I watched it.
