Quirky, Refreshing, Great singing, Cliched, Clever

See it if You are an Iconis completist , like girl groups, women's prison movies , and bright , young talent

Don't see it if You need male voices and intricate rhymes

Ambitious, Entertaining, Intelligent, Great singing

See it if Joe Iconis tells another story about youth, but we can all relate; smart and sassy. Very talented cast.

Don't see it if Have to travel.
