Storyline

When two friends, Lexi and Jennifer try and get in shape, they start to get rid of their food by vomiting it up. Lexi is then taken to a bulemic center by her worried mom. When she recovers she tells her mom that Jennifer might still have the same problem. Lexi's mom confronts Jennifer's mom and Jennifer get mad at Lexi. Lexi tries to reason to Jennifer at a beach party while Jennifer is drunk and Jennifer refuses and runs away from her. She is then hit by a passing car and Lexi becomes depressed and the vomiting starts again. Written by Kyle <Kyleshivers@aol.com>

Very truthful representation on a somewhat taboo subject.
19 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen a couple movies on eating disorders but this one was definitely my favorite one. The problem with the other ones was that the people with the eating disorders towards the end just automatically get better or accept the fact that they need help and thats it. this movie I thought was more realistic cause in this one the main character Lexi doesn't automatically just get better. She gets better and then has a drawback. I think this movie shows more than the others that I've seen that getting better doesn't just happen, it's hard work and takes time, it's a long path to recovery. I think this movie shows all of that very well. There should be more movies like this.
