A Surprise
12 February 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When Foxfire first came out, I had no interest to watch it at all.

Recently I became a huge Angelina Jolie fan. The main reason to watch the movie was her.

Jolie is great as usual. She gives everything into her character and is very good. Not a surprise.

Besides Jolie, I was shocked as to how entertained I was while watching it. It gave me a sense of longing for that kind of rebelliuos female companionship.

Foxfire has such reckless abandon that makes for fun ride. From Angelina's mysterious entrance into the science lab, to the end credits, I stared at my screen. And smiled. I had so much fun I watched it again the next evening.

Hedy Burgess (as "Maddy") and Angelina Jolie (as "Legs") give the best performances. Everybody else, are cardboard cutouts of girls for the most part.

"Legs" is everything "Maddy" wants to be. Self sufficient, drifting, taking no **** from anyone.

"Maddy" has the loyalty and values that "Legs" longs to have. The ability to hold friendships, love, conscience.

Like someone else once said, the sexiest scene is really Legs and Maddy talking on the rooftop, and its not even about sex.

The soundtrack is a great adrenaline ride. The music has the same spirit as the movie and is really fun.

A must for Angelina Jolie fans.

An entertaining movie.
