I loved it!
9 November 2002 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

I just watched 1 of the stories- the thing about the anorexic girl (played by Calista Flockhart). We watched it for health class and we didn't even know it was her! We enjoyed the movie because it was realistic and nice and I hope to watch it again if I have it on tape. An 8/10.
