Katt Shea Ruben came up with the title, 'Posion Ivy' after shooting began and instantly doubted it and thought it was silly. Only after the crew agreed with her and told her to 'go with her heart' did she stick with the title. See more »
A few scenes before the car accident, Ivy's injury is visible, but very light on her chest. Once the car accident occurs, the injury is in the same place, but much darker. See more »
She's definitely a turnoff - too overt. I mean, most girls don't fly through the air with their skirt around their waist.

Poison Ivy is a good teenage drama movie, starring Sara Gilbert and Drew Barrymore, who both give great performances here. Barrymore plays Ivy a young and wild teen, who lives with her aunt. When she ends up moving in with her friend, Sylvie played by Gilbert, Ivy slowly and seductively works her way into the lives of her 'new' family. The movie has some weird moments, but most of the time it's good and keeps you interested in the plot and the characters.
