The real deal on High School, 5 April 2005
Author: Terra_X from United States

"Odd Girl Out" (2005) Alexa Vega, Lisa Vidal, Leah Pipes. 4.5/5.0 stars. When a girl (Vega) finds that her closest friends start to spread rumors and ruin her life she starts to break down to the hurtful and often harmful rituals of High School. Vanessa is your average girl trying to find herself in the world. She is friends with Stacey (Leah Pipes), the most popular girl in school, until Nikki (Elizabeth Rice) and Tiffany (Alicia Morton) sabotage her friendship with the queen bee and the clique. She is tortured throughout the school year until finally, the words start to get to her, and not in a good way. The school outcast, Emily (Perry) joins Vanessa on her quest to navigate through the dreadful everyday life that our teens go through everyday. My thoughts on it-This definitely hit the surface with a stone, and made some huge points that "Mean Girls" (2004) failed to point out. HIhg School may be the hardest times of our lives. Especially when your friends turn on you, and you are all alone in a teenage wasteland of betrayal, rumors, and raging hormones. This is the real deal. The secret life of girls is NOT pretty. What goes on behind our backs-Its one place where you cannot protect your children. Parents should know that this movie does contain some very dramatic elements to it. There is some very intense moments or drama and schoolyard insults such as slut, whore, or bitch. There is some sexual references made through out the movie. Children under 13 should have an adult or guardian around for some mild discretion.

Rated TV-14 for Strong language and thematic elements.
