One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Shocking acting and special effects only partly mask the terrible direction. What the film lacks in production values it makes up for in wooden delivery and terrible cliches. You half expect to be able to see the people throwing the buckets of water. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
Puberty Blues is a movie about being a teenager.. unlike it's American, high budget counterparts such as Pretty in Pink or Fast Times at Ridgemont High, it is a very honest look at life as a teenager. It centres around two girls who are trying to fit in with the "surfie chick" crowd and to do so must participate in the usual teenage antics (sex, drinking, cheating on History tests etc.). What the film lacks in plot, budget and acting it makes up for with sheer honesty - there's no ultra happy "feel-good" ending like in the formentioned counterparts, but instead you are left with the impression that life really was like that for them. All in all, one to be seen, but forgotten.
