It was a lovely film of women coming of age, going through their rites of passage as it were, and was needed in our glut of male-only movies.

Don't waste your time on this.

I for one really enjoyed it.

Its such a contrived set-up of events that its totally unbelievable.

However, she is a character who initially sparks much interest indeed, but eventually loses her realism and becomes uninteresting.

Long, Boring, Silly .

compelling Angelina leads the group .

i accidently caught Foxfire on Showtime, when i had insomnia.

but "Foxfire" is worth watching because a previously unknown young actress named Angelina Jolie waltzed onto the set and completely stole this movie.

However, after establishing a unique and wonderful storyline, it becomes cliché too quick.

And while the film may employ certain clichés in order to get that message across (such as the somewhat one-dimensional secondary characters) the message itself is not a cliché and is an important one for girls of all ages.

i was supposed to go out partying, but I fell asleep waiting for my always late friend.

Although Foxfire illustrates once again film's basic inability to truly capture the levels of meaning proffered by the print medium, it is relatively successful in remaining true to the spirit of Joyce Carol Oates's riveting novel.

Along with Foxfire (1994) all of these films, one for each decade, present the viewer with a very compelling look at feminism.

The soundtrack is a great adrenaline ride.

I watched it at 4 in the morning (insomnia).

Jolie gives a stunning performance as the free-spirited Legs, and Hedy Buress (Maddie) portrays the coming-out-of-her-shell part of us all extraordinarily well.

An entertaining movie.

An exciting movie , that all girls will understand.

This story was taken from a novel from the 1950's and that might explain to some degree why this script was so predictable and contrived.


The writing is contrived.

I love watching movies about the bond/friendship between teenage girls coming of age, their just so real.
