Freedom Writers: 5 out of 10.
I really didn't like this Hillary Swank vehicle based on the true story of Wilson High. I didn't like the similar "Dangerous Minds" either, and I think I know why. It's Morgan Freeman's fault.
Morgan Freeman starred in "Lean on Me" back in '89 and all of these movies pale by comparison. Save the time you'd commit to watching "Freedom Writers" and give "Lean on Me" another spin.
Discipline is not the enemy of enthusiasm.
