Did You Know?


At one point, one of the girls sarcastically asks, "What are you, a pod person?" This is a reference to the sci-fi horror film Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), which would have been quite popular among twelve-year-old girls and other young people during the period portrayed in the film.

When the girls are searching through books in the library, Roberta tells everyone to come and look at an article. Whilst getting up, in one shot the book in front of Samantha is open on a page full of both text and pictures. In the following shot the page is just all text. See more »


Roberta: You can't get pregnant from french-kissing!
Chrissy: I know that, beetle-brain, but it's common knowledge that if you tongue-kiss a boy, he automatically thinks you'll do the deed with him. They can't help it. They're driven. It's the male curse.
Samantha: Oh? And what deed would that be?
Chrissy: You know... planting the seed and watering the flower. Isn't that how it works?... The man takes his watering can and sprinkles it on the flower.

Cute, Wholesome, Family Flick.
15 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was a great family flick. It was funny and charming. I watched this film with my girlfriend, when she picked it out at Blockbuster I cringed at the fact of having to watch it, but you know, I admit, I enjoyed this film a lot more than I though I was going to. It was cute, the plot was good, it actually kind of reminded me of another fantastic film called "Stand By Me", but in a girl's perspective of course. If you have young children, heck, if you don't have young children, give this one a shot. This is a film I think any Female would probably enjoy. If your a dude, put away all your manly inhibitions for about an hour and a half, don't expect too much going into the film, and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
