A narrow "how terrible it was to be a teenager in my family" movie
23 September 2000 | by xorysSee all my reviews

Another tedious, self-indulgent, moaning "how terrible it was to be a teenager in my family" movie. And as if the exaggerated and overbearing characterisations weren't enough, the saintly and put-upon heroine also gets to hammer home her points in voice-overs. The acting talent (which is considerable) really doesn't stand a chance, given the narrow-mindedness of the script (and the writer directed also - so no added perspective there). I'd strongly advise skipping this one... see "Girl" instead - a far superior film covering very similar ground, but possessed of the kind of breadth of vision and generosity of spirit which Unglued so conspicuously lacks.
