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 »

Poison Ivy simply tells the story of a young girl who definitely gets what she wants and even resorts to murder if needs be. All four of the main characters you can develop some feeling for, and you could even feel sorry for Drew Barrymore's Ivy, although I did feel as if sometimes some characters were simply failing to believe what was pretty obvious to everyone else.
An 18-year-old Barrymore shines in this role, and Cheryl Ladd is also very convincing.
A young Leonardo Di Caprio makes an appearance in a perfectly watchable (but also rather short) film, with good direction from the relatively unknown Katt Shea.
