User Reviews

excellent!
27 June 1999 | by ericaSee all my reviews

I bought this movie without ever hearing of it before. After seeing the cover and reading the back, I was intrigued. I was not disappointed in the least. Angelina Jolie is acting's best kept secret...or was at least. Now she is starting to finally get the recognition she deserves. The storyline, acting, and camera work was splendid. The bond that forms between the group of girls is touching as is the bond between Maddie and Legs. True, many may not like this movie after reading the novel, because the two are so different, but the movie is more modernized and appeals to a larger audience. The end of the movie never fails to get me choked up. 10/10.
