Goofs

At Angela's and Jamie's confirmation ceremony, the parish priest is administering the sacrament. A parish priest would not normally administer this sacrament to young people who are receiving confirmation at the normal age: a bishop would administer confirmation. Parish priests only administer the sacrament of confirmation to converts, and only then when no bishop is available. See more »

Quotes

Meridith: [to Jill, in court, angry] What do you think you're doing here? This trial is for Stacy's friends!
Jamie: This isn't a party, Meridith, and there aren't any invited guests! Jill has as much right to be here as you do.

A Very Realistic Fact-Based Drama.
28 October 2001 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

Angela Delvecchiois is a young girl who comes from quite a poor family. When she moves to a rich town called Montevista with her family, she of course wants to be accepted and to become friends with everyone, including Stacy, the leader of the most prestigious clique at her new high school. Angela really admirers Stacy. After Stacy makes fun of a strange girl named Monica though, Angela defends her, which leaves Angela becoming Stacys target to pick on. Still wanting to become friends with Stacy, Angela makes up a story in order to meet Stacy. When they do meet, Angela tells Stacy that she really likes her and than asks Stacy to come to a party with her. Stacy refuses and tells Angela that she's going to tell everyone what a weirdo she is. In rage, Angela stabs Stacy with a kitchen knife and ends up killing her. The trial for Stacys death is of course very big, with no one knowing who the real killer of Stacys is and many people assuming it was Monica. All this at first, of course.

Tori Spelling and Kellie Martin play the lead roles here and they both do a great job, especially Spelling. Jenna Leigh Green also has a small role and is good too.

Death Of A Cheerleader/A Friend to Die For is a fact-based movie and it's really good. It just shows what people do just to fit in. I give the movie a 10/10.
