Slowly, however, she makes friends, despite the lack of a nearby mall or anything else to do. Soon she meets up with two boys fighting ... except one isn't a boy, but a girl. The girl, Jody, is shunned by her peers as a "bad kid." As the film progresses, we see Jody as the apparent victim of a bad relationship between her own widowed mother and Ray, a man who, like everybody else, grew up in the town.

Glowworms...you turned them into damn glowworms!
9 November 2002 | by (Montgomery, Alabama) – See all my reviews

Christina Ricci is great as Elizabeth in this intelligent adventure flick. The supporting cast is brilliant. The costumes are simple. One of the good farces in the genre, Gold Diggers: Secret Of Bear Mountain will sparkle golden bears in the viewer's eye. 10 out of 10.
