Movie Info

Michael (Patrick Dempsey) is a college student invited to spend Christmas vacation in Quebec City with his sweetheart Gabby (Jennifer Connelly) and her family. The wide-eyed Michael sees the city as a fairytale land with the splendid architecture gently dusted by the falling snow. When Michael arrives, Gabby tells him she is breaking up with him, and separate sleeping arrangements are made, and Gabby's mother (Florinda Bolkan) makes sure the visitor adheres to Gabby's wishes. Gabby's eccentric father (Andre Gregory) is an idealistic scholar who likes to work in the nude. Michael isn't lonely for long, as Gabby's two younger sisters show amorous interest in him. Lila Kedrova gives an excellent performance as the slightly daffy grandmother who believes Michael is her late husband.

Critic Reviews for Some Girls

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

A cross-cultural teen sex farce with some good moments, Some Girls hinges on the deadpan comic timing of Patrick Dempsey.

Top Critic

To its credit, the film is well cast and boasts imaginative production design, but is neither particularly funny nor emotionally credible.

The rest of the cast, like the D'Arc mansion itself, has problems with electricity. There isn't any.

Washington Post
Top Critic

There are some sweet moments and several very funny scenes, mostly of the door-slamming, mistaken identity variety.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The film remains highly entertaining through all its baroque turns of events, and the performances are fine.

...an exercise in irritation that possesses exceedingly little in the way of positive attributes.

Audience Reviews for Some Girls

This romance movie is slow moving, somewhat funny and entertaining, got some good actors, but in the end not that good.

Not what I was expecting to see. It was drama with a sweet side rather than a romantic comedy. It was alright to see once but wouldn't try to see it again.

What the hell is the point of this movie!?? It's rediculous and BORING! I didn't even care why the family was so crazy.
