I liked this movie
23 July 2002 | by (Fresno, CA) – See all my reviews

There seem to be very few films with compelling teenage heroines, but this is one of them. Admittedly, some of the themes are cliched and the storyline is pretty predictable. However, I think it's worth watching if you like seeing strong female characters.
