She's right. My favorite scene in the movie was the one where he's in the yard dancing with his sister and brother. (It's a very sweet scene.) Oh, and the final dance number kicks balls (I thought I'd try that as a variation of "kicks ass" but I'm not sure if it really works as a substitute) and there's even a nice little homage to Dirty Dancing in the dance number. The movie is definitely worth seeing. (I already recommended it to Boom Boom Becca, and Bonnie I think you'd love it too, for shiznit.)
Speaking of cheesy awesome movies, Jessica keeps making fun of me because we were having lunch at Fuddruckers and they have these random TV screens around the restaurant and we saw a preview for the movie The Covenant and she kinda dissed the movie and then I was like, (very emphatically): "Dude, it's warlocks in high school. On the swim team. I can't fucking wait." And I'm serious.
I think it has the potential to be the best movie ever. (And I know I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm going to go so far as to say, based on the concept alone, that the movie is probably going to be better than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.)
