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 »

Solidarity At It's Best
10 July 2006 | by silentsyren-1See all my reviews

I have loved this movie ever since I first saw it. It forces you to think for yourself. What would happen if you acted on the impulses in your heart, instead of what you were told was right? Jolie gives a stunning performance as the free-spirited Legs, and Hedy Buress (Maddie) portrays the coming-out-of-her-shell part of us all extraordinarily well. The other characters are well thought out, but don't overwhelm the script. This movie speaks to the rebel in all of us, and it will make you laugh, cry, yearn, and hope. I believe that every generation of girls should see this movie, and realize that they have the ability to think for themselves as well. There is nudity on the part of 3 out of the five actresses, and partial nudity in the very beginning, but it is not distasteful or even sexual at all. It's more about being comfortable. Bless you, FoxFire.
