All Together Now Netflix

‘All Together Now’: Netflix Original Movie Review

All Together Now makes a powerful impact in its representation of positive teen relationships, but its attempt to represent more trauma and diversity than the story can handle deters it from reaching its apparent goal of serving as the ultimate "real" teen flick of 2020.

‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’ Review: Shred’s Not Dead, Dude
