This film was originally titled "American Pie" but had to change it's name because of Universal's movie with the same title. The Universal film title was originally "East Great Falls High". Eugene Levy stars in both films. See more »
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)
