Bernice is very odd
9 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

well, we watched this movie in English class. Not only is it a movie from the 70s (you can tell from the picture quality), but it's absolutely absurd. The girl who plays Bernice is, well, either awful or incredibly good. Bernice is this sad, pathetic, horse-toothed girl who spends the summer with her pretty and popular cousin Marjorie. THe movie was slow-moving, but very funny. I laughed the entire time I watched it because Bernice was such a sad little person.She only showed true spirit at the end. If you would like to have yourself a good laugh, or don't mind losing 45 minutes of your life, this is a pretty good way to spend it. I'ts ridiculous and silly and entertaining, mostly because Bernice is the strangest person I have ever had the privilege to watch.
