Movie Info

Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha continues to explore the world of precocious adolescent girls with this tale of a quirky teen whose mind perpetually drifts back to thoughts of growing up, procuring the perfect boyfriend, and throwing the biggest birthday bash ever. While maintaining the perfect social life or getting that nose job she so desperately wants were once her highest priorities in life, the girl who wanted it all gradually discovers that family and friends are more important than any popularity contest.

The film lacks the wit and drama that might pitch it beyond the target demographic, though judging from what makes the girls squirm in the film, it might not succeed even there.

Jul 25, 2008

A good-natured bundle of early-teen femme angst pitched squarely at the youngsters who've made Louise Rennison's books a hit both sides of the Pond.

British coming-of-age tale has some sex, cursing.

A perfectly entertaining chick flick with strong performances and Gurinder Chadha's trademark appeal to female sensibilities...

It's such a sweet, funny movie, completely honest about hormones and young love.

...aimed at early-teen girls, but it's got enough warmth and charisma to attract a wider audience.

Strictly for the burgeoning tweener set, concerned with acne, fashion, and that uniquely Brit expression of lust: snogging. In point of fact, the Brit viewpoint is what gives this film its singular charm.

Very solid, honest, and frank coming of age film from the director of "Bend It Like Beckham."

Georgia Groome, Aaron Johnson, Eleanor Tomlinson, Georgia Henshaw, Manjeeven Grewal, Sean Bourke, Karen Taylor, Alan Davies, Eva Drew DIRECTED BY: Gurinder Chadha The story centers on a 14-year-old girl who keeps a diary about the ups and downs of being a teenager, including the things she learns about kissing. The story is definitely for younger girls but still enjoyable for us gals who obviously have been through the same things that Georgia is going through. Although its funny and girls will be able to relate to some of the things, some of it is just unrealistic. The ending for sure. Just a little over done. Then again it was made for a younger girls who daydream about that stuff. But still an enjoyable watch. Funny and had some really awkward moments that all girls have experienced when it comes to their parents and the experiments we did with our hair and other things. But I also felt that this movie makes the girls seem a bit desperate for a boys attention and having to change things about themselves to be noticed. But of course in the end it does come off as saying 'just be yourself". It also gives a bit of taste of just how awful girls can be to each other. So I guess this would better for a younger audience. Mostly girls. They might get something out of it.
