Audience Reviews for Strike! (All I Wanna Do)


An exciting young cast and a sense of nostalgia fuel this invigorating film. In a private girls' school, four protagonists form a club to be true to themselves and their school, which is in dire financial straits. Fun, funny, dramatic, and beautiful realised by a stellar cast.

First half... lame. Second half... funny and cute. It was worth a watch.

This one manages to deliver much more than you'd expect. It's not perfect and perhaps doesn't explore the gender war as much as it could have, but the story is heart-warming, the characters are likeable, and overall it's an enjoyable experience.
