Trivia

The title was changed to "Girls Of Summer" for the film's television debut, ostensibly to fool viewers who had already seen the film or perhaps because it was a dud at the box office. See more »

Guilty Pleasure
10 June 2003 | by (South Carolina, USC) – See all my reviews

Justine Bateman was probably the primary pull, or point of interest for me - from 'Family Ties'. I saw this movie when I was younger (high school perhaps). I even made several attempts to locate/purchase the soundtrack. To this day, I still sing their version of 'Iko Iko'. I had no clue who Julia Roberts was at this time - but her character did stick with me. This movie is fun to go back and watch now, with all of its cast who have gone on to further their careers.
