Trivia

When the adult Chrissy is scanning the front cover of "People" with Teeny on the cover, the smaller headline at the top reads, "Linda Richmond tells all in new autobiography!" with a picture of Mike Myers dressed as his famous Saturday Night Live (1975) character. See more »

Goofs

When they are at the Greenfield Library, and Roberta is reading an article involving her mother's death, the paper is alternately flat/wrinkled between shots. See more »

Quotes

Samantha: You can run from the dissapointments you're trying to forget. But its only when you embrace your past that you truly move forward. Maybe Thomas Wolfe never got to go home again, but I found my way there. And I'm glad I did.

Stand By Me for Girls
20 August 2003 | by (LOndon,England) – See all my reviews

This is a cult classic girl movie and i still watch it today. Although I did not enjoy the 'Now' version of the film, where the four girls are grown up and re-uniting, mostly because i feel the characters dont really like eachother anymore, i loved watching the 'then' part with the four girls growing up in 1970's USA. The excellent soundtrack just adds to the uplifting feeling of this film. Watch as we follow Christina Richie and friends growing up through fun times (Devon Sawa getting his clothes stolen) and bad times (Richie finding out how her mum died). Look for an early performance from Brendan Frasier as a soldier back from war, and Thora Birch before she got all serious! Excellent film.
