Good film for girls, great cast, good plot, nice moral story
14 October 1998 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I think this is a great film for anyone. It's not only fun, but it has a lot of great one-liners and an excellent plot. You can feel the emotions being presented on screen. The cast is fantastic. Phoebe Cates and Annabeth Gish along with Robert Rusler and Scott Coffey did a great job showing the growing friendship of their little foursome. This definitely shows the bond girls can have along with having boyfriends. Just because a boy comes along doesn't mean the friendship will die....friends will always be there for one another. I highly recommend this film to anyone who's looking for a great romantic comedy!
