<strong>Dangerous Minds </strong>(1995) Michelle Pfeiffer and her cheekbones were the unlikely choice to play another real-life California teacher, LouAnne Johnson, a former U.S. Marine who marched into a gritty Palo Alto classroom to become a drill sergeant with a heart. She wins over her surly pupils with karate moves, candy bars, a potty mouth and the lyrics of Bob Dylan. The soundtrack had the hit "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio, who also popped up as the (ahem) sex-ed teacher in the short-lived TV series starring Annie Potts.
