"If it's a man's world God wouldn't have made me." Danielle (Temple) lives life on her own terms. When her mouth gets her in trouble at school she is sent to the "special" classroom. After an assignment pairs her up with a school loser her life is forever changed. The saying goes don't judge a book by it's cover, that could not be more true for this movie. The first ten minutes is what you would expect but from then on it becomes an emotional movie that deals with some pretty heavy subjects. The acting is great in this and there is an all-star cast along with some surprising cameos. If I keep talking I am afraid I will give something away and that would do the movie an injustice. Much like the movie "Good Old Fashioned Orgy" I think that the movie would get a better audience if the title was different. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie. Overall, a very surprising movie that was much much better then I expected. I give it an A-.

DIRTY GIRL is a funny, ultimately touching, coming-of-age/road movie that undergoes a major shift in tone during its third act, and yet remains an extremely satisfying viewing experience.

Written and directed by Abe Sylvia, the film is set in ultra-conservative Norman, Oklahoma in 1987, and centers on Danielle (Juno Temple), the high school tramp, who is paired on a class parenting project with fellow student Clarke (Jeremy Dozier), an overweight gay kid.

When Danielle's mother (Milla Jovovich) announces her engagement to her strict-minded Mormon boy friend (William H. Macy, in a role that should make Mitt Romney cringe), the girl decides to head for Fresno, California, to finally meet her biological father, and because he has a car and a credit card, she drafts Clarke to accompany her.
Unfortunately, that prized Cadillac belongs to Clarke's violent homophobic father (Dwight Yoakam), who goes after the couple, while his repressed wife (Mary Steenburgen) and Danielle's mom join forces to also bring their kids home.

DIRTY GIRL is a clever, witty, well-acted "gem," a true audience-pleaser.

[Watch that bag of flour. It almost steals the show.]

Extras on the DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment include audio commentary by Abe Sylvia and deleted/extended scenes.

Despite my better instincts, I'd have to call writer/director Abe Sylvia's "Dirty Girl" fairly irresistible. I'm not usually so soft-hearted, but a spirited cast led me to let go of my reservations and just go with the flow. And I quite enjoyed "Dirty Girl" on those terms. It may lack a bit of originality, but it's just so darned likable. Yes, the movie employs every tired cliche expected in a road trip comedy. Yes, the movie revisits the common themes of a hundred different coming-of-age sagas. Yes, many of the peripheral characters are garishly over-the-top as are the eighties set pieces. Yes, the film sometimes plays to easy punchlines, especially in relationship to homosexual themes. Yes, the movie has some of the most patently ridiculous scenes you might imagine (wait until you catch a nightly striptease contest in rural Nevada! The fact that it is a nightly event only scratches the surface of why it is so preposterous). And yet, here I am recommending the movie. It has a surprisingly big heart and a winning underdog duo with leads Juno Temple and newcomer Jeremy Dozier. So in spite of my reservations, I found the movie undeniably fun. And there's nothing wrong with that!

In truth, "Dirty Girl" is a bit all over the place in its tone. The movie starts with a pleasing nastiness but soon enough morphs into a heart-on-its-sleeve buddy comedy. It sets off eliciting shock value but speedily evolves into a family weepy. "Dirty Girl," despite its salacious title and a few risque situations, is not nearly as edgy and confrontational as the early scenes would lead you to believe. It is, at heart, a crowd pleaser that is tinged with real and serious situations but is ultimately a fantasy of sorts.

I saw this movie in the theater and can't wait to get my own copy on DVD. Juno Temple and Jeremy Dozier are going to be major start and I can't wait to see the next movie Abe Sylvia directs. The movie combines both comedy and drama, which is great since it lets the young actors show their range. The coming-of-age story set in a small town in Oklahoma deals with serious subject matters, but in a way that's not depressing - instead the story unfolds in a way that allows you to really connect with the characters and everything they go through. As a bonus, the soundtrack is perfect!

New talents and seasoned vets in a terrific story. You're not sure what's going to happen each step of the way. The music is awesome too!
Too mature for younger teens for sure - hmm, wonder if that's why it's rated "R" ? :)

Highly recommend it for a movie with your bestie, your BFF, your mate, your chum, oh heck - anyone you can grab to sit still. I watched it solo but you miss so much by not missing it with someone to share this with !
