Very good girls and very good movie
25 September 2018 | by scs2020See all my reviews

First off, if you read the description and expected this movie to not be cliche then that is your own fault. Obviously there have been movies made before with the same content as this one, but I think the actresses in this one made it their own unique movie. I've never been a fan of Dakota Fanning until this movie, actually. I think it was very cute and a good testament to how much a good friendship can withstand. I'd watch again.
