Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
This kid-slobs-vs-kid-snobs comedy looks and sounds great, thanks to attention to detail when it comes to recreating the 1977 Georgia setting. And there were a few scenes that touched me, particularly when it came to demonstrations of friendship between the kids. But you know how every scene and every story thread is going to go if you've seen any movie like this before; it's barely even trying to surprise you. And that climactic finale, wow; I haven't seen something that cringe-worthy in a long time, in a way that really damages any good will that you might have built up towards the film.
