Alternate Versions

When aired on television the scene where the girls are shopping is edited out. This is because there is strong sexual dialogue throughout, this will confuse viewers because later on in the movie Rita is asked if she ate any meat and potatoes. This is one of the slang terms used by Violet to describe male genitalia. See more »

This was one of the best films I've ever seen!!!
12 December 1998 | by ani-5See all my reviews

This is a movie that deeply effected me, and that is how I can tell if it is a good movie or not. Foxfire develops its inspiring characters as the movie progresses. I found myself becoming attached to and envious of the relationship between these girls, especially "legs" and Maddy. The touching story shows the power of friendship, and the lessons behind sticking with what feels right. I only hope I meet someone who affects me as much as "legs" affected Maddy. I give it a 10!!!
