Quotes

[first lines]
Ray: [narration] Some fairy tales are true, most of there stories we make up to help us deal with real life; it all depends on your point of view, but here are the facts... there was once a princess, who lived in a castle, high above the streets of an enchanted kingdom. The king and queen were long gone but they left her with a treasure, that she would stay a princess forever. On the eve of her 22nd birthday a great celebration was planned...

Finally, The Best Comedy-Drama Growing Up Movie
17 August 2003 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Uptown Girls ranks as one of the best comedy-drama motion pictures for the masses. The perfect blend of comedy and drama that has the sharp, biting, gut-roaring laughter along with the hard-hitting, emotional turmoil of pain and happiness. This movie deals about growing up in real terms, about facing death, about loss, about caring, about love, about family, about learning to have fun but also to become responsible. There is so much packed into this overall simple, comprehensive fairy tale yet poignant look into the soul movie. While not a box office winner because the guys will hate the movie (with little action and little sex), this female, mood-feeling movie hits just the best balance of laughter and serious script development (among the best that has come along FINALLY). This is what real film is all about...this film is the closest one can get (without becoming an independent film...without becoming cheesy, without trying to please everybody and losing its soul) to a great film in its girl-growing up romantic comedy genre (yet it really isn't about romance as much as becoming a whole person (young or old).
