"I bought this movie at a video store for $2.00 where they were giving away movies for free that didn't sell well. I had wanted to see this movie for a while but I never got around to it. Today I decided what the heck, I'll buy it, it was cheaper to buy it than it was to rent it. So anyway I was expecting a movie with a lot of sex, drugs, and an 'American Pie' type dialogue to boot. What I got was way different. There's hardly any sex (except for one scene from far away, where you can hardly see anything) and the movie was much more serious instead of cheesy (unlike the cover art leads you to believe). A lot have people have complained about a lack of a plot. The plot is there, it's just more drawn out. The movie was very realistic, basically it could have been a biography of any teenage girl's life. It doesn't end happily like most teen movies end, in fact it ends kinda sad but yet in the same sense it says, "life goes on keep plugging at it". I thought it was something any teenage girl could relate to. There aren't a lot of big stars in this movie, the biggest star today would be Mischa Barton who puts on a fake English accent. Anyway, I'm really surprised at all the negative reviews. Yes, the cover art and the movie title makes the movie appear to be some kind of soft-core porno but it's completely different. So never judge a movie by its cover and give it a chance. It's more about relating to it, than being entertained."
A "Tart" of a movie.

"This is an OK movie, but it could have been a lot better. I watched this movie because I am a fan of Brad Renfro and Dominique Swain. Renfro's acting is quite good as usual in Tart and he is very believable in his role as a popular but troubled teenager. Dominique Swain however is mediocre and doesn't display her true acting talents. Melanie Griffith is credited on the movie case, but her total screen time is merely 20secs(I'm not kidding!).
Tart is a movie that is targeted for the same audience as movies such as 'Cruel Intentions'.
The DVD lacks any extra features (except for a 3min trailer).
Rent the movie from a video store before you choose to buy it."
Good Film - For Some People

"Straight to the point. . . .there are a lot of mixed reviews here, but I would say that this movie is a really good film. Now, i'm in to the quirky, eye-catching, think you can't stomach what is going on with this film kinda movies that have young up and coming actors/actresses in it. Bijou Philips can always be spotted in most of the films, that's how you know it might fit the mold. Anyway, if you aren't into the crazy larry clark films such as "Kids" and "Bully", or any movies such as that, then this probably won't interest you a bit. Oh, and to that reviewer at the top. . . Megzi i believe their name was. . . .Mischa Barton who is great in the film, she doesn't throw on a fake english accent in the movie. . . she really is from London. . . do your research first!"
Good Movie, Bad TiTle

"This was a very good movie with a very bad title. I thought Swain did a great job showing the confusion that teens really do go through while they're trying to fit in. I definitely recommend it. This was better than Cruel Intentions."
Good cast that goes nowhear

"tart is a poorly writen movie that is a waste of some of the best young actors. the script gives us no reason to like anyone in this film, making it an endurence test to watch it all the way through. swain who was interisting in lolita is just nothing here, phillips, who is entertaining usually, is just a paper cut out of a person. and mischa barton, who has always held my attention when on screen, even in bad, poorly written movies, couldn't even hold my interest in this film"
