Worth watching if you can find it.
14 February 2003 | by bighairygarySee all my reviews

Young street kids take on thugs, kind of a Guardian Angels type organization, co-ed, no uniforms. Chance to see a very young, very slender Ellen Barkin at the beginning of her acting career. I got lucky and caught this on a TV broadcast years ago and haven't seen it listed again since then. Too bad, it's worth a look.
