Quotes

Rebecca Fernhurst: [Stares at Andrea silently] You had sex didn't you? Well talk to me you big slut, how was it?
Andrea Marr: Disappointing. I wish I'd saved it.
Rebecca Fernhurst: Oh, no way. You gotta get that first one over with. That way when it really counts, you're not sitting there the whole time going, "I'm not a virgin anymore, I'm not a virgin anymore." Think of it as a warm-up.

Dominique Swain stands way out above all others in this one!
14 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

What an extremely well-acted, realistic, coming-of-age-grunge movie! Dominique Swain has definitely shown herself to be quite a unique talent. First LOLITA, and now GIRL. This is a definite MUST-SEE by males and females alike.
