Movie Info

Three young women decide to deal with a shortage of eligible men by sharing an older man in this independent comedy drama. Glory (Amanda Walsh), Lisa (Holly Lewis), and Keira (Caroline Dhavernas) are three friends who've grown up together in a small town in the Eastern Canadian province of New Brunswick. The three teenagers are stuck in a community with few challenges and fewer prospects; growing marijuana is the leading growth industry, and Keira is the only one who is planning to attend college after their imminent graduation from high school. Most of the boys their age are aimless heshers with little going for them, so Keira and Lisa are quite intrigued when they discover Glory has a secret -- she's been having an affair with Keith (David Boreanaz), a local pot farmer and tough guy who is ruggedly handsome and nearly ten years her senior. Despite Lisa's frequently stated religious convictions and the fact Keira ought to know better, the two girls decide that Glory has too good a boyfriend to keep to herself, and they decide to seduce Keith and share him over the course of the summer. Keith is more than wary of this prospect at first, but Keira and Lisa are not about to take no for an answer, and soon Keith is sexually backed into a corner and dealing with more than more than he knows how to handle. These Girls was screened in competition at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

  • Skillful, tight editing reveals the volatile patterns of behavior, shifting suddenly from fights to confessions, dancing to despair, yet in the end the girls are always fiercely supportive of each other.

  • A rousing documentary on the street children of Cairo, These Girls is an agonizing and uplifting depiction of street survival at its most daunting.

  • Can a yarn without credibility, can a comedy without laughs, can characters without a centre, can direction without discernment, add up to a movie?

  • Fun precisely because it allows its characters to have theirs.

  • This summer-fling comedy turns out to be as generic as its title suggests.

    Fell asleep watching . David Boreanez stars as a married man, who?s sleeping with the baby sitter, her friends find out & they add themselves to the mix. Taking turns and finally he?s had it & wants out. He devises a plan with a buddy of his that goes awry. The movie & the characters are boring. We?ve all seen or heard of various incarnations of movies like this. The characters (actors acting) seems wooden. F
