Holy Cow!!! And I thought I knew so many great old flicks - I don't know how I missed this one! Sure the storyline sounds a bit dated. However, the acting is top notch. By the end of the film you are ready to strangle one of the characters. This film has points where you might guess what will happen. But it also has some real zingers that are unexpected and makes you say wow.
It takes us along the path of high school clicks, and the reputation of young girls. Sure it leaves out boys which are half of the equation, but you have to remember when this was made. Taking that into account, it really does parallel current situations more that it does not.
Watch it - This is something really worthwhile.
