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

Jill: Great, Angela, my friend the do-gooder. Honestly, you make me feel like I should go to church and confess or something.

Classic Peer Abuse
23 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a story that shows us how far people will go to avoid being bullied by their peers and belonging which occurs frequently in girls. We see Angela who is an insecure teenager that strives to be popular. Stacy is the classic bully, one who suffers from the "Princess Syndrome" and everything seems to go her way despite her behavior. This shows that bullying DOES get out of hand and that kids will go to any lengths to avoid becoming victims or targets of Peer Abuse. A really good film that exhibits Peer Abuse in girls during the teenage years.
