Good movie, superb music
2 September 2001 | by (Half Moon Bay, CA) – See all my reviews

Here is a solid, satisfying film, very much in the mold of the best of Disney's product of recent years -- seamless, escapist and enjoyable.

Be especially on the lookout for the outstanding music by Philip Marshall. While helping drive the action forward and maintaining a resolute pace in the usual professional Disney fashion, the score also gives opportunities for some very tasty virtuoso slide guitar riffage, as well as mood-reinforcing Hawaiian slack key work.

The talents of Martha Coolidge have by no means gone astray here. As director of such under-appreciated gems as "Real Genius", "Rambling Rose", and "Valley Girl", her efforts as producer of "Rip Girls" seem to have pulled together a well-coordinated package well worth a look.
