Interesting movie if you can get past a couple parts
Other commentors have suggested that the entire premise of this movie is flawed. I agree. The obvious step of escalating the problem through other avenues obviously was written out of the story.
If you can get past that, and the drinking, and the language, and the unsupportivefamily, and the numerous parties.... then it is an interesting portrayal of one girls struggle to take on 'goliath'; the interaction between fast-food workers and unions; the delicate social life of the modern teen.
So, why did I give it a seven? It was a good-quality production, had some kind of *message* (given some liberties), and the acting was excellent. While obviously not the best movie out there, it is a springboard from which these actors (some extremely talented) can move up to more mainstream movies.
