Quotes

[first lines]
Christmas Flint: [looking up at the sky] Last summer momma gave me this flashlight to signal the aliens. She said, of course there's life out there. Now go outside. But now it's just me and y'all. The aliens of the universe. So if you can hear me, I'm Christmas Flint. Human female. I think you'd like me. I think you'd wanna be my friend.

Absolutely wonderful!
26 January 2020 | by josiepelchSee all my reviews

My husband and I absolutely loved this from the very beginning. The girls are cute, the story is great and even the interactions were fun. I think most of the negative reviews were people that didn't grow up in the 70's and didn't ever experience being teased or left out of the group. I totally related to this film and loved the s#$&* out of it!
