As a debater
23 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is not at all an accurate representation of what it is like to be apart of a speech and debate team. I was so excited, seeing as though debate does not get a lot of media. This was an awful portrayal of that community. If you are going to make a movie about something. make sure it is somewhat accurate. They turned the first debate movie into a crappy typical high school movie with a below average plot line, scaring anyone else in Hollywood from making a debate movie that would be accurate and entertaining.
