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.

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

Audience Reviews for Foxes


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

Confusing plot, that doesn't go any where. Characters well done..but story is unclear and jumps around randomly. Not the best of the 80's.

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.
