In this fact-based film, a New Jersey superintendent, Dr. Frank Napier (Robert Guillaume), watches helplessly as East Side High becomes the lowest-ranked school in the state. With nowhere else to turn, Dr. Napier enlists maverick ex-teacher Joe Clark (Morgan Freeman) to take over as principal of the declining school. Unfortunately for Clark, before he can focus on improving the student body's state exam scores, he has to somehow rid the school of its gang and narcotics problems.

    This is a really moving movie. It starts kinda slow but it has a really good story and is great to watch. It has some words and actions that would probably prevent me from calling it a family movie but above all a great great movie!!
  • Best movie ever

    This movie is amazing!!!! I love it. My mom went to east side high. My mom said the school was tough. She was before this. She was in class of 80'. She remembers reading the news and seeing this. She remember her sister coming home and telling her this. She loves this movie. She says it teachs kids, like me, a lesson. It did teach me a lesson. Watch this movie!
