Michael, a college student, visits his girlfriend Gabriella and her family for Christmas in Canada. When he gets there, she tells him that she doesn't love him any more. Meanwhile, her family is exceedingly strange: her father is a writer who spends most of his time wandering the house nude. Her grandmother mistakes Michael for her dead husband. Her two sisters express interest in him. Granny escapes the hospital and heads back to her home in the woods, and the family chases after her, and Michael is kept reeling. Written by Ed Sutton <>

Teen sex comedy with a touch of magical realism
13 August 2002 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

This film goes beyond the usual boundaries of its genre in

surprising and sensitive ways. While always amusing, it is also

genuinely intelligent and genuinely emotional without ever being

preachy or maudlin, thus placing itself far above 98% of the films

out there. Jennifer Connelly gives a luminous performance and

Patrick Dempsey infuses his character with a flawless combination of frustration, joy and wonder. The story itself is

grounded in the "coming of age" sex comedies of the 70's and

80's, just long enough to set things in motion. Once the film really

has its own legs, however, it delves more deeply into the

complicated and strange family relations that drive the themes and

propel the plot toward a beautiful and somewhat unexpected


"Some Girls" has easily been among my favorite films since the

first time I viewed it as a rental I had not previously heard of. The

only tip-off that it might be something extraordinary was the superb

supporting cast, and I have rarely been so delighted at having

picked a winner.
