A real sleeper!

August 21, 2002
Aisle Seat

Spunk and sass are the engines driving this comedy celebrating the nurturance of female independence.

Spirituality and Practice

Any film as energetically performed, entertaining, and rousing... clearly has the potential to cross the demographic barriers--that is, if given the chance.

Audience Reviews for Strike!


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.

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.

Lame and pointless.
