High School girls starting with Maddy(Hedy Burress),a young,pretty,and intelligent art student.Rita(Jenny Lewis) a typical high school girl that is the one chick in Science class that doesn't wanna disect(If that's how you spell it) the frog.
Goldie(Jenny Schmizu) a chinese and/or japanese drug fiend.
Violet(Sarah Rosenberg) a perky "social" chick.And last Legs
(Jolie) a young rebel passing through town to town.When Rita is sexually assaulted by a teacher,the five girls join foreces and teach him a lesson.In other words they beat the crap out of him.
They're suspended and start hanging out at an old abandoned house and all discover their true selves I guess you could say.
I really don't know why I liked this movie,the movie is a chick flick at heart.It's a sad film,but Angelina Jolie shines and makes it more sad then it's meant to be.Go see this movie.B+
What I loved about it, besides the great acting (Jolie, of course was great, but the whole cast of girls shone in this movie) was just about everything. It was fun and heartfelt, the realtionships between the girls were well developed, and there was a certain charisma between them that was interesting.The teenage rebellion was fun and not too formulated, (though it was predictable, of course.)
I also really enjoyed the artistry of lighting and sets in this movie. Buress's room filled with stars (Spike and Virgo - the June sky) the beautiful blue lighitng in some of the scenes and warmth of the candle scene. Someone was an artist here with the feel of the sets - that beautiful old house, too!
Some of the scenes were really powerful in ways that most teen flicks aren't. A lot of that has to do with the quality of acting, I'm sure. But really, all of the actresses were great, and like in all good movies, I was really attached to the characters. Jolie was superb as the cool James Dean-type, drifter-into-town. Buress was a good strong main character and did a fine job of acting off of Jolie, making their relationship really intersting. I loved the scene with Jenny Lewis (who played the shy, Rita) where she sings in the grocery store (she sings in real life in a band I think), and Sara Rosenberg as Violet played her part as the steretypical "[tramp] with a heart" perfectly.Read more ›
The fresh, young cast is wonderful. Yes, Angelina Jolie shows what kind of talent she has. Jolie plays a character nicknamed Legs. Legs literally shows up out of nowhere and struts into a high school biology class. She pulls the pins out of a live (!!) frog that is about to be dissected and tosses the frog out a window to freedom. She then climbs out the window herself. Legs has this odd habit of showing up at the school even though she apparently has no connection to it.
Anyway, she befriends four girls at the school. She soon finds out that the scummy biology teacher has been sexually harassing and fondling some of his female students. They decide to get a bit of revenge and end up beating him up. The girls are then suspended for a few weeks. They find an abandoned home in pretty good shape and they decide to make it their hangout.
Some female bonding and hijinks take place. They give each other tattoos. They break into the school and carelessly start a fire. Implausibly, one of the girls is almost abducted by a bunch of guys from the school. Luckily, a couple of her friends had been hiding behind some bushes or something and one of them pulls a knife on the guys. Then they steal the main abductor's vehicle. They end up being arrested and charged with several serious felonies. Extremely weak plotting if you ask me.
Ultimately, the film tailspins out of control. As the movie progresses, the viewer loses more and more sympathy for the girls. It should be the other way around. You should care more about characters once you get to know them. These girls make such awful and selfish decisions that you end up feeling that they deserve whatever comes to them. Sadly, the fabulous cast can't save the fatal script they were given.

the book and film are in different settings, legs is much different in the movie than in the book as how she treats maddy but i guess nobody wanted to see legs bust maddy's nose... Read morePublished on May 10 2004

Angelina Jolie was great in this role. She was like a female James Dean. Ruthless and intoxicating. All the women fall under her spell and go with whatever she says. Read morePublished on Nov. 26 2003 by Severe
This movie works because of Angelina Jolie. Any other actress and it wouldn't even be worth watching. She brings danger and excitement to the film which it desperately needs. Read morePublished on Oct. 11 2003 by Patrick
The talent that exudes out of a young Angelina Jolie is breath-taking. She is so believable as "Legs", the street smart, fun-living & loving wanderer. Read morePublished on Aug. 21 2003 by Karen
