Movie Reviews

"What Girls Learn" needed to include a spanking
mguilfordtx | Austin, TX USA | 06/18/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is cliche and tedious--with a storyline and dialogue reminiscent or an after-school special. Scott Bakula and Elizabeth Perkins are always good, and their performances salvage a rather unconvincing film. The major flaw in this movie is the central focus on the daughter, Tilden. I suppose the intention was for us to empathize first with her difficulties getting used to a stepfather--and later--with her mother's breast cancer. But this homely little girl is mean, nasty and hostile from start to finish to almost everyone. There are many "teen angst" movies, but they somehow find a way to make the character likeable--or help the audience identify with her plight. With this film you spend two hours waiting for "what girls learn" to include someone teaching this girl to stop being such a selfish, self-centered brat. I am sure this was not the intent of the director of this film, but this little girl's sour look and bad behavior kept me from buying into this story--or caring about her situation."
Powerful yet tender
H. Kaplan | East Coast, United States | 11/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A seeringly powerful yet tender tale about the turmoil that young women often have to cope with. Wonderful performances by a young cast and even grander performances by the adults. Elizabeth Perkins and Scott Bakula have wonderful on screen chemistry.Based on a true story, What Girls Learn, is 'almost' a chick flick. A strong and outspoken woman with two daughters falls in love with a man who changes their lives only to meet with tragedy. Yet, despite the 'down' parts, there is great humanity here. Can't imagine a dry eye in the house."
Unconvincing
B. M. Dorton | Lex, KY | 08/21/2003
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The 3 leading ladies had no chemistry what so ever, even when the 3 dare share a bubble bath. The oldest daughter Tilden was the most hateful and unlikable girl I have ever seen. Not one convincing smile crossed her bland face. The lack of chemisty however had nothing to do with actress Elizabeth Perkins who is always a joy on screen. Also Scott Bakula was good too. It all boils down to heavy handed melodrama at it's dullest."
