Comic but stereotyped teen-movie.
30 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Based on Blake Nelson's popular novel - Girl offers a traditional cut-and-dried teen-story. Far from excellent, witty Clueless or TV-Series Dawson's Creek.

Andrea Marr (Dominique Swain) lays eyes on Todd (Sean Patrick Flanery) a local rock guru and begins to rebel by going to clubs and becoming a groupie.

Irrespective of the inspiring original, the plot feels jerky and Andrea's character lacks in substance. Girl slips in authenticity but somehow captures some of the disillusionment and confusion of being a teenager in today's society.

After all, both Dominique Swain and Sean Patrick Flanery (Young Indiana Jones!!) are talented and captivating actors and make Girl worth seeing.
