Overview

Teenagers stand up for their rights and take on the woman who wants to scuttle their freedoms in this comedy drama inspired by a true story. Principal Weller (Julie Bowen) is the ambitious but hard-headed leader of Booker High School. Weller plans to run for superintendent of her school district, and believes if she wants to win she needs to project the image of a no-nonsense leader, and with that in mind she begins cracking down on what she sees as discipline problems at Booker High. However, in many cases what she sees as kids out of control are seen by others as kids expressing themselves, including a girl who wants to distribute condoms to recognize National Safe Sex Day, and two boys who are caught kissing in the hallway between classes. Mr. Drucker (Malik Yoba) is a teacher at Booker who tries to champion the students' rights of free expression, but his conflicts with Principal Weller end up costing him his job when he's fired for questioning her authority. Holden Donovan (Gregory Smith) is a student at Booker who is alarmed that the students have lost one of their few allies, and decides to do something about it -- along with his classmates, he sets out to establish and defend the right of free expression for high-school students, and launches a campaign against Weller's bid to become superintendent. Kids in America also stars Stephanie Sherrin, Nicole Richie, Adam Arkin, George Wendt, and Elizabeth Perkins.

This movie was filled with drama but also standing up for what you believe in. It teaches any and every one a lesson while being hilarious at the same time.

and it wasnt for Nicole Richie, as a matter of fact, i walked thru the store with another movie covering it up because I didnt want others knowing I was buying a Nicole Richie movie. I personally cant stand her and she has NO acting skills. her character had a bad intention in mind....a cheerleader. imagine that, Nicole Richie in a short skirt and shaking her butt. She needs a lotta help with acting because she can't. I bought this movie in the hope i would see some action like in Not Another Teen Movie, and there was, in two whole scenes. Woo Hoo. Other than that I threw the dvd away right after I watched it. Same thing I did when I got Absolute Zero.
