    Just watched this movie on WGN from Greater Cincinnati area. It beat anything showing on the network shows. While I don't watch a lot of movies anymore, watch and listen to talk shows and C-Span, this movie kept me spellbounded throughout. Wish we had more substitute teachers like that in all the demoralized inner city schools of our great cities.....maybe, just maybe some of these kids could make something of themselves instead of thugs and drug dealers. Tom Berenger was well as a great role model.
