Nicely quirky
2 February 2000 | by (Lisbon) – See all my reviews

A lovely little film with lots of twists and turns and quirky moments to keep you on your toes. A plain Jane gets had (à la Carrie) at a prom. She secretly plans revenge. The revenge goes awry. Shanee Edwards does a good job as the protagonist - mixed up, bitter but good at heart. Danny Aiello is very believable as the loving, caring father and Sally Kirkland is nicely wacky as the mother. In fact all the characters are well drawn in this neat, gentle comedy of small town American life.
