News & Interviews for Poison Ivy
Critic Reviews for Poison Ivy
Unfortunate thesps take it all very seriously, while technical aspects are emptily polished.
Drew Barrymore stars in a melodrama that borders on high-class kiddie porn.
Its willingness to take risks, and its insights into the frailties and confusions of teenage friendships, lift the film right out of the rut.
Why settle for the usual walk around the exploitation block when Shea offers a wild ride with the top down into uncharted territory?
For the most part the actors' work seems incomplete because their characters are cut off before they can fully blossom.
Audience Reviews for Poison Ivy
This is like a modern version of Lolita. Barrymore does a fantastic job of being the erotic femme fatale. I really loved this movie, it's thrilling and romantic at the same time. I highly recommend it.
Not really that great.
Poison Ivy is a good teenage drama movie, starring Sara Gilbert and Drew Barrymore, who both give great performances here. Barrymore plays Ivy a young and wild teen, who lives with her aunt. When she ends up moving in with her friend, Sylvie played by Gilbert, Ivy slowly and seductively works her way into the lives of her 'new' family. The movie has some weird moments, but most of the time it's good and keeps you interested in the plot and the characters.
