HOLY CRAP! what a thriller!
25 March 2004 | by CirquemmSee all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair.' The story is that of Bernice, played by the stunning Shelly Duvall, who spends the summer with her cousin, Marjorie. It ended up being a sweet and saxy summer that no one would ever forget. Marjorie decides that before her cousin leaves, she should teach her a little something about what it's like winning the men during the mid-1920's! Marjorie sasses up a big bowl of attitude when she realizes that her own friends have taken a shine to Beatrice! The story culminates at the trilling and shocking surprise ending of the movie! 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair' gives us an steamy, intimate peek into the scandalous lives of the rich. This movie has everything: love, lust, adventure, exploitation, deceit, and revenge. A must see!
