Sticks to the tropes
The film is fairly vanilla and sticks to tired unrealistic tropes and broad strokes but yes it is good to see a brown girl as a Disney lead for sure and I hope this paves the way for better and more nuanced stories.
Bonus points for inclusion and originality!
This Disney Channel movie definitely deserves respect for the inclusion of cultural references, diversity, and friendship. It also should be praised for turning stereotypes around and making things original.
For example, the popular girl character is actually best friends with the main protagonist, Rhea, and her best friends. I think, in any other movie, she would’ve most likely been the mean, selfish bully antagonist. This was a nice twist to that formula.
Additionally, I enjoyed how the movie touched on responsibility and how important it is to balance responsibilities and manage them adequately. That relates well to the stresses that young kids and teens have to go through, especially in these uncertain times.
The acting here was another strong point. I particularly enjoyed the performances by Avantika as Rhea and Anna Cathcart as Molly. The performances of the actors and actress who played Rhea’s family members also were very enjoyable.
On a final note here, “Spin” deserves major bonus points for including small parts for young people with disabilities. As someone who has lived with a physical handicap my entire life, I realize that issues regarding handicaps, disabilities and other challenges aren’t always touched upon in media. Yes, the scenes with the differently-abled kids were brief here, but I’ll bet being included in this movie meant the world to those kids. “Spin” definitely deserves recognition for all these good qualities.
