Goofs

When Rachel visits Georgia for the first time, she has rather worn off reddish nail polish. When she wakes up in the morning on the couch, obviously zoned out because of all the walking, without time to do much about her appearance, she has a professional looking French manicure. In the next scene she has red nail polish again. See more »

Quotes

Harlan: You're a dangerous girl, aren't you?
Rachel: It depends on what you define as dangerous.
Harlan: Safer to get thrown from a horse.
Rachel: But you don't have to brush me or feed me after riding me.

Pleasantly Surprised
5 August 2007 | by ksujessi19See all my reviews

This movie was a complete surprise! I had heard the worst reviews and when I watched it I was happily surprised. Love her or hate her Lindsey Lohan can act. I agree with others that say this movie was badly advertised. It is definitely not a light comedy, but deals with a real issue of sexual abuse. Lohan's acting makes the watcher laugh, cry, and ask yourself if she really just said that. She makes all those around her shine. I'm tired of the same old movies making it big on screen just because they are the stereotypical feel good comedies. This is finally an original movie with an original screenplay. If you are tired of copycat movies you should watch this one. Thumbs up!
