Movie Info

In this drama, four California girls grow into young women without much help from their self-absorbed parents. One girl is pretty level-headed and helps support her three troubled friends: a hooker with a nutty father, a fat girl tired of being overprotected by her parents, and a coquettish pathological liar.

One of Foster's earliest, but no less impressive, turns

Scott Baio. Enough said.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Foxes depicts the pursuit of happiness as a desperate ritual.

Spirituality and Practice

If it's a drama, it's too silly to be effective - and if it's a comedy, it's alarmingly free of charm.

Interesting movie. For someone who did not grow up with such wild circumstances, It is difficult to imagine. The ending was abrupt and unsatisfactory.

I saw this drama on TV a long time ago, I thought it was pretty boring for the most part, but it seemed a pretty realistic view of teenage girls. Plus, there are a bunch of stars in this, so it's an okay movie.

Kind of muddled. Does not seem to be very well edited and the story skips around a little bit and doesn't always make a lot of sense. Also, WTF with the young bride at the end? Aren't these girls meant to be like 16 or something?! I kind of liked it for it's early 80's setting - the fashions were amusing, (those HUGE glasses), and I was interested to see Cherie Currie act. On the whole it is a story of female friendship, which is always good, but I think it could have been executed a little better.
