The ButterCream Gang
When a member of the ButterCream Gang gives in to peer pressure, his friends learn the true meaning of unconditional love and kindness. Members of the ButterCream Gang share fun, service and friendship with the small town of Elk Ridge. The gang is separated temporarily when Pete moves to Chicago for the school year and falls under the influence of a local gang. When he returns to Elk Ridge unexpectedly, his friends notice he has changed. Pete vents his anger and frustration by forming another Elk Ridge gang to pick on the ButterCreamers and make Scott’s life miserable. As Pete struggles with his conscience, old friendships are challenged and the boys help him find self-worth and the kindness in his heart.
This is a fantastic film that made me laugh and cry. This film is a great way to show young teens that peer pressure is not always the way to go, and that not all gangs are bad. I believe that this movie will be enjoyed by your family, especially if you have teenagers; you might even try a little family discussion afterwards. This film is recommended for ages 12 and above due to the more mature themes in the movie.
