Quotes

April: Claire, darling. So what's with you advising Neil to break up with me?
Claire: [drunk] He broke up with you?
April: Yes, he did.
Claire: Well, good for him.
April: Good for him? Why are you all of a sudden interested in my love life?
Claire: First, I'd be careful in calling it a love life. Second, Neil is my friend. I thought I'd crack the door, let a little light in. I'd do the same for you, April.
April: [scoff] Really? Ooh, this is good, Claire. Let me just absorb this.
Claire: You're wrong for Neil! He deserves better. Something a little more ...

beautifully frustrating and realistic
2 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

i was pretty apprehensive when SOME GIRL first started with claire running down the street with angel wings on. i though it was gonna be some weird movie with parallel universes or meaning (don't ask, it was 1 in the morning, i wasn't thinking too straight). besides i only rented it to see giovanni ribisi, because he is the bestest and cutest actor ever. anyhow, when the movie got rolling, i really got into it. for once, i didn't rewind the movie to see giovanni again, nor did i grow impatient waiting for him to come back on screen. i became so wrapped up in the movie that i started yelling at my tv! everyone seemed so ignorant and confused about love, but in a truthful, inspiring, realistic way. and i wanted to kill chad even more than when he was in clueless and was a jerk to ty! i truly loved this movie and i highly recommend it!

well-casted, well-written, well-acted 9/10 laurie
