One for the ladies
12 August 2003 | by =G=See all my reviews

In "The Secret Life of Girls", Delfino makes a solid center of gravity as a sober, level headed teen who takes a philosophical approach to the dissolution of her parents marriage while trying to cope with the vicissitudes of teen life. A simple little uninspired comedy which borrows summa-dis and summa-dat from every kookie comedy ever made, "...Girls" is a chick flick with the fingerprints of a female auteur all over it. The flick deserves credit for avoiding the hackneyed issues of teen angst while trying to replace them with a softly feminist attitude. An okay little no brainer for the ladies but not one for the guys. (C)
