Audience Reviews for Little Darlings

Tatum O'Neal and Kristy McNichol are summer campers who become rivals at first sight. Kristy plays Angel Bright, the camp's scholarship winner who is a poor, streetwise girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Tatum portrays Ferris Whitney, who is wealthy and stuck-up. They lock horns instantly so when one of the other campers challenges them to a contest, it's anything goes! Whoever loses her virginity first, wins!!! Although not as sleazy as it might sound, "Little Darlings" seems like a Disney romp about teenage sex with hormones flying everywhere. Matt Dillon stars as Randy, the camper from the boys' camp across the lake whom Angel picks to deflower her. Matt Dillon is just a hunk and I loved him in those tight jeans and shirts.OOH LALA! Plus Armand Assante is hottest camp counselor as well.

Super Reviewer

Charming 1980 coming of age flick starring Kristy McNichol (in a truly great performance) and Tatum O'Neal as two girls who meet on the way to summer camp and strike a bet-whoever looses their virginity first wins money put up by one of the other campers. The film turns serious near the end and really becomes great at that point. Very entertaining and memorable.
