Reviewed on 4/25/2008...
I owned a copy of this movie which I just gave to my daughter. I had read the book this movie is based on years ago. The movie, in my humble opinion, does not go into the detail the book does and left me feeling cheated. I suppose the year the movie was made and the limits on what was acceptable to show in films in that era is the reason the better scenes were left out of the movie. Because these scenes which really show Alice's descent into drug addiction were either left out or glossed over, I had a hard time seeing or feeling Alice's dispair. Forget the movie, go read the book.

Movie Reviews

This film will stay with me for the rest of my life.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a 13-year old. I read the book "Go Ask Alice" and I loved it. I rented the movie, and loved it. I am learning about drug abuse now so I wont make the same mistakes Alice made. This is definitely my favorite book, because it it so honest and realistic. I feel like Alice in some ways. I feel like I am all alone sometimes, and I get angry and frustrated and upset over the littlest things.What can I say, I'm normal. So I give this movie a 5 because it is the only film out there that is real. It is based on an actual girl's life, and that's what I like about it so much."
A polished, "seventies-safe" version of the book

"I have read the book and seen the movie several times [I have it on VHS]. The book was incredible! I read in 2 days; it was hard to put down. The movie was typical of many movies made in the early 70's --censorship was big then. The movie didn't address/portray all the real stuff going on in the book. The book was the closest representation of what really happened in life. The movie was far from the book; since it was made for television, it had to be made "sterile " and "safe". I loved the movie because I love most 60's and 70's movies--but it needed to be closer to the book."
Woah!!!this movie was great!!!!!
