daughter of the streets.... powerful message., 10 March 2006

Some people may consider this to contain a spoiler.
Author: George Parker from Orange County, CA USA was obviously not paying attention when he commented on this movie. Charley is not oh so perfect, and her mother is far from it. True that Charley wanted to help her brother,and she did have some anger and resentment issues to work out between her and her mother, but she did not "turn bad." She became caught up in the need to do Something. Her life spiraled out of control, and she let her emotions take over. This movie contains a powerful message, and although it is geared for teens, I feel that even as an adult it has value. It has a lot of character development, and I found myself empathizing with both Charley and her mother.

a pretty good movie, 21 June 2004
Author: DrummerDude714 from California
I just watched this on HBO...and, I gotta say, I like it...its a pretty
good movie, and fairly entertaining....although the acting was pretty
poor in a lot of parts...but, its a good movie.this a movie that i'm
sure you can see on lifetime.
This movie is about a mom, and her daughter....and her daughter runs away from home, and then meets the wrong guy, and gets involved in drugs, and prostitution.
if you do see this movie, you will most likely be able to tell that it was made in 1990, by the music, and hair styles, etc.

Terrible treatment of material, 3 August 2009
Author: larpine from United States
And I believe George Parker was paying perfect attention when he wrote
his review. I found myself wondering two things when I saw this movie.
Why did Jane Alexander come out Acting Retirement and why is HBO airing
this terrible 20 year old, made for TV film. As for a description of
the movie, it's pretty much all in the title, yet with a irritating
white wash of the subject matter that would annoy the most avid Golden
Girl's fan. It is obvious that the film makers had little understanding
of material,for you get the impression that the director's only
research prior to making the film was renting Pretty Woman on video.
The writing is poor, yet the all the actors tear through their dialoque
as if making television history with the most shocking and ground
The HBO executives should made to watch this film, and afterwards, unload it to lifetime for a very discounted price.

A good drama for church ladies, 31 May 2004
Author: George Parker from Orange County, CA USA
If you think a movie with a title like "Daughter of the Streets" just has to be a gritty good-girl-goes-bad story similar to George C. Scott's gut wrenching "Hardcore", think again. This lame TV flick tells of an oh so perfect mother (Alexander) who has some awful disease which is so debilitating she can't support her family so her oh so perfect teenage daughter (Zal, who was wonderful in "Table for Five") starts to get poor grades in school, then smokes, then drinks, then dates a pimp, and then somehow just sort of starts selling her body (the next logical step, right?) curbside so she can feed her family. This unseemly turn of events inspires the oh so perfect mom to have some kind of miraculous remission so she can begin a campaign to get kids off the streets thereby saving the day. This super sanitized soap opera quality tripe has about as much to do with reality as it does with entertainment. Just about nothing. (C-)
