Goofs

The cherry-picker truck used by the Flat Critters to get to Tinka's window was a Ford C-Series cab-over. While this truck was manufactured between 1957 and 1990, the cowl insignia combined with reflectors indicates this is a model made after 1968, five years after this movie takes place. See more »

Quotes

Tinka Parker: Are you carrying Dennis' child?
Verena Von Stefan: You can tell Tinka, she's had four pregnancy scares.
Tinka Parker: Four.
Tweety: Was it beautiful, when he spent himself inside you?
Odette: Do you actually expect me to answer these questions?
Momo: But we're curious. We all have our hymens except Tinka.
Verena Von Stefan: That's enough, clearly she doesn't want to describe it. It's like hog wrestling isn't that right Odes?
Tinka Parker: I don't even think she's done with Dennis yet.

Alternate Versions

The original "Strike!" version had a scene in which Tinka was vulgarly dancing with a boy and then after the dance, Verena got the boy a handkerchief; That scene was removed from the "All I wanna do" version. You can still see a bit of Verena grabbing the handkerchief in the "All I wanna do" version. See more »

All I Wanna Do...is watch this movie.
27 December 2001 | by Scarlet13See all my reviews

Okay, so that's a little much. But seriously, this is one of the funniest teen-related movies I've seen, and I've seen most of them. The cast is delightful, especially Kirsten Dunst as Verena, the quick-witted ringleader of the Daughters of the American Ravioli. She and her friends Tinka, Tweetie, and Momo take Odette, a new student at Miss Goddard's School for Girls, under their trouble-making, big-dreaming wings and try to stop their beloved school from going co-ed. It sounds like a thin premise for a movie, and maybe it is, but the characters are real and humorous and some of the scenes are extremely funny. The dance, where Verena and Momo spike the punch and intoxicate the choir boys of St. Ambrose, is hilarious, especially if you can pick out Hayden Christensen as a drunken student. And Tom Guiry, Scotty Smalls of "The Sandlot" fame, grew up and got himself some muscles. My one real problem with this movie was Gaby Hoffman as Odette. She was, for the most part, the one dull person in a crowd of comical characters. Her main goal is to be an "ex-virgin" and then become a politician. She's rather boring and expressionless compared to the rest of the DAR. This movie is funny and charming and perfect for a group of girlfriends to watch together. I'd suggest it along the same lines as "Ten Things I Hate About You." I give it 7 stars out of 10.
