Neither as bad as its critical reception nor as good as its Amazon user reviews would lead you to believe, FOXFIRE sits in a weird middle ground between exploitation flick and female empowerment tract. Melodramatic to a fault, FOXFIRE showcases Angelina Jolie and Hedy Burress near the beginnings of their careers—obviously, Jolie went on to become Hollywood royalty, while Burress (star of one of my favorite sitcoms ever, BOSTON COMMON) faded into a career doing voice-over work and one-shot roles on TV shows. The two of them are the only reasons to give FOXFIRE a watch, but it deserves to be seen for their performances, which are remarkably good.

Foxfire is a coming of age story of a group of girls who are brought together by circumstance and by a sleazy teacher who is trying to molest the young ladies in his class. Into this mix comes a bad girl, played by Angelina Jolie, who tries to bring the girls together and toughen them up. They set out to get revenge on the evil teacher, but this of course leads to more trouble. A gripping film in the tradition of Stand By Me. If you are into good stories and drama, you'll like this. And if you're just one of those guys who used to watch Tomb Raider to try to get a glimpse of Angelina Jolie's breasts, then look no further. Because they're on full display in this one. So, you get nice nudity and a nice dramatic story...who could ask for more?

This is a chick-flick with lots of drama. As usual, Angelina Jolie was great as the lead trouble maker with a ton of personal problems.

Not a Chick Flick
Michael T. Hopson | Alexandria, Virginia United States | 07/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Forget what ya heard, Foxfire is definitely not just a chick flick. I'm a guy and I've loved this movie since the first time I saw it. Initially, I'll admit I was attracted to it because it featured two of my favorite actresses(Jolie, Burress) but it was the story itself that has made me a devoted viewer of this movie ever since. The movie is miles and away different from the book it's based on, and not just due to the setting. The relationships between the girls are slightly altered, not to mention a good number of the girls are left out. That in no way diminishes how dead on the emotions each character portrays are played out. Thelma and Louise? Definitely a film made solely for the female audience. But Foxfire is just head and shoulders above that. Great film."
Fantastic - Jolie's performance makes this film.............

"Hmm, I have a strong feeling that the previous one star review was by a man. Anyways onwards....... Okay, this film may not be without its flaws, but it certainly makes a refreshing change from the recent spate of terrible 'teen' movies; She's All That, Varsity Blues, etc. So what if the film didn't have a fantastic script or big stars, or whatever - not everyone can afford to shoot films on multi-million dollar budgets you know. The performances seemed subtle - I enjoyed the fact that the actresses (especially Angelina Jolie), conveyed emotion through their eyes, and use of body language. I thought the scenes between the girls were touching and heart-warming. I thought that the close bond between Legs and Maddie - the 'rooftop' scene and the ending in particular, were memorable because of the emotions that were conveyed by both actresses, and the frustration that I felt because they didn't get to kiss. Overall, this film is definitely one to watch - it shows the true value of friendship - portrayed way better than any other 'teen' movie. Also, if you ask me Thelma and Louise is a completely different film - why the heck are people comparing the two?!? Foxfire is THE definitive 'chick flick'. SEE IT. BUY IT. LOVE IT."

"...and I'm not going to say sorry, either, for giving this movie five stars. While it is much different than the book (The movie eliminated Lana as a main character, and replaced her with Violet, who was a smaller character in the book; the book was set in the 50s, the movie in the 90s, etc.), it was indeed a wonderful, wonderful film. The main plot stays the same - five girls, each with troubled pasts, gang together to stop the world from messing with them ever again. They start by beating up a teacher who sexually harasses and molests female students that he keeps after school for detention, and it escalates from there, climaxing when the girls realize they've taken things a bit too far. The girls in the movie express such power, and their close ties with each other are heart-rending, especially at the end, when Maddy says goodbye to Legs. Angelina Jolie puts on a stunning performance, as always. This is the ultimate girl-power movie. A must see for every girl who's ever tried to make a difference, or just wanted to."
