"Punky Brewster" in a movie!!
18 February 2005 | by Go_SkinsSee all my reviews

I had never heard of this movie until I stumbled upon it on another site! I found out that the girl we all come to know as "punky Brewster" was in it! I found out it was on a women's channel. Anyways, I watched it and I actually enjoyed it. It was considered a drama which usually aren't too bad. Her character gets "wiped out" in the early part of the movie and we're left trying to figure out who did it. She came from a poor family and gets involved with a rich kid who graduates and is planning on going to school with the head cheerleader in the fall. She finds out that he was behind it and nearly loses her life. She becomes a good friend of Emily's mom after she dies. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good "cheap" drama and who wants to see "punky Brewster" all grown up! Even though this movie is now 8 years old!
