The movie is all over the place, searching for an identity that proves almost entirely elusive. I say SKIP IT!!!

This movie was cute and fun. Good cast, great soundtrack, and the clothes, hair, and makeup brought me right back to 1987. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. As long as you don't go into it with overly critical eyes, you can enjoy it for what it is.

3.5/5 --- "This world is full of dipshits."

A LOL comedy with good drama inbetween, and a film brave enough to tackle hard issues about our parents, our sexuality, our friendships and more..."Dirty Girl" definitely has its moments and I did tear up at the song, well done kind of pop-art film! Loud colors, the hair and the wardrobe of the late 80s all make an appearance. Juno Temple rocks it again, I'm surprised she's still not that hit star but then again maybe she doesnt want to be, at least she's an indie queen ;) Intro of Jeremy Dozier is great, and Millo Jovovich in a real role (not kicking ass but) actually emotionally acting (and also not her husband's films). Props! Overall funny and heartfelt.

A hilarious and emotional tale of two loser freaks. Juno Temple and Jeremy Dozier shine in the story of Clarke and Danielle, two misfits who get partnered on a flour child assignment and after blowing off both sets of parents go searching for her biological father and end up finding themselves (it's less corny than I make it sound). Both of the leads show incredible talent, and the script rocks with every emotion conceivable. Special mention needs to go to the costume and makeup designer, who manage to match Danielle's evolving personality to her look in every scene, and to the director.....or at least, to the crew member who had the bright idea to give Joan the flour bag a changing marker face that nearly makes her as much an active character as any human in the cast. Also worth noting are the roles of the parents, played with a unique perfection by Dwight Yoakam (Clarke's dad), Mary Steenburgen (Clarke's mom), William H. Macy (Danielle's stepdad-to-be), and an unexpectedly impressive Milla Jovovich (Danielle's mom) and Tim McGraw (Danielle's absent biological father, who pops up for a brief but heavy role near the end). This is a movie that's so full of love and laughter that you'll be crying tears of pain one minute and joy the next, which makes this one of the best movies that you could hope to see.

An unlikely duo teams up for a roadtrip they won't soon forget. The acting for both Juno Temple and Jeremy Dozier are on point.

¡Muy buena película! No creo que sea tan mala como indica el porcentaje, es una cinta "simpática" con una buena actuación por parte de Juno Temple, y de algunos miembros del reparto. El guion tiene algunos momentos graciosos, la química entre Juno Temple y Jeremy Dozier es buena (no la mejor, pero buena). En fin, creo que Dirty Girl es una buena opción.

This movie has a lot of heart but can be extremely random at times.

A teenager and her gay friend hit the road to search for the girl's estranged father.
About every road trip cliche is combined with every gay best friend cliche is combined with every estranged teenager cliche. There's nothing original about this film's plot or execution. As tepid as it is, it doesn't offend one's sensibilities with cliche-piling, but that's about the best that can be said of it.
Juno Temple is charming and sometimes funny (even if her accent is nothing like what I heard in Norman), and Jeremy Dozier gives a strong performance in his film debut.
Overall, Dirty Girl is pretty boring, but it's pro-gay, post-sexual revolution sensibilities made me not mind it as much as I should have.

A cute film about two very different teenagers who finds true friendship through processing their problems. Both Juno Temple and Jeremy Dozier are really great in their rolls.

This was an interesting little movie. It drags a bit here and there and I didn't like some of the characters, but its worth a watch.

An underrated, admittedly uneven film which boasts a powerful performance by lead, Juno Temple. She carries this film, and while it never feels sure on its feet, Dirty Girl has a lot more to offer than the title or opening act suggest. Once Danielle opens up to Clarke, we are treated to an unconventional friendship that grows strong as the two chase their respective dreams. And just try not to cry at the end when Danielle meets her father, or when she performs her vocal solo. You know you want to.

The reviewers just needed to dump on somebody. This film could have been a boring "after-school special," but any time it was heading toward saccharine, they threw in some oregano. In most cases, people made the right decision. And it was good to see a positive portrayal of a gay guy--yet make him physically unattractive. My favorite part was the narrator--who is a bag of flour. How can you beat that? And I disagree that this was any kind of abstinence propaganda. Certainly, the "dirty girl" was promiscuous, and we feel that she will be more discriminating at the end, BUT her promiscuity was USING the boys, not the other way around, AND there's no hint that she's going to be a nun at the end. Likewise, the gay kid is self-actualized, and he, too, is set to have an active sex life. See the film for yourself and add to the positive reviews. . .
