We Got This Covered

Dirty Girl is an off beat gem that's well worth the bidding war it inspired at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.

A funny, poignant if slightly uneven coming-of-age story.

Enjoyable to a fault, Dirty Girl struggles at times with tone, unable to find an effective balance between scenes that border on farce and those with weightier themes.

There's one scene in the film, keyed to the heartbreak anthem "Don't Cry Out Loud," that struck me as rocketing over the top and into the glitter stratosphere. I got over it, though.

This is an undeniably clumsy film, but a good heart beats inside its chest and that counts for something.

Juno Temple and Jeremy Dozier are one of the most surprisingly sweet cinematic pairings in some time.

Totally engaging road movie, lit by ingratiating performances. An impressive directorial debut by Abe Sylvia.

But even if Dirty Girl is formulaic, it's constantly moving forward, and not just in the geographical sense.

Dirty Girl ultimately does establish itself as an enjoyable little crowd-pleaser that benefits substantially from the star-making work of its two leads.

A sweet 'n' sassy period comedy with a Juno sensibility and the soul of a Little Miss Sunshine.

...l feels like a Hollywood vision of the way the ignorant and unwashed comport themselves. It feels ugly and it made me sad.

Dirty Girl isn't. Sorry, but it's just faux grime, a thin layer of bad behaviour that wipes clean with a two-ply tissue to reveal the real movie beneath - all shiny sentimentality.

Dirty Girl broadcasts its intent to be edgy and subversive - poking fun throughout at small-town, conservative attitudes toward sex and morality - without ever achieving subversion.

The movie is all over the place, searching for an identity that proves almost entirely elusive.

The film rolls downhill to Serious Town when Danielle finds her father, and although the performers are equipped to handle it, it gets more heavy-handed as it winds to a close.

if you can't quite get behind a defiant diva and her queer companion, you'll find every moment of this motion picture a chore

[VIDEO] "Dirty Girl" is such an inept attempt at abstinence propaganda that it should have the opposite effect on teen girls chomping at the bit.

It'd be hard to conceive of a movie more painstakingly comprised of dramatic filler.

Dirty Girl is much more fun when Danielle is behaving badly. Unfortunately, that only lasts about 20 minutes, and as soon as she befriends Clarke -- an unlikely situation in itself -- the fun ends.

If your sensibility is pure trashy camp, don't expect anyone not to laugh when you try to be earnest.
