A young Jodie Foster stars in this compassionate portrait of four unhappy teenage girls struggling with life in late 1970s Los Angeles. Jeannie (Foster) and her friends all have parents who are either divorced, negligent, or downright abusive. Looking for some kind of point to their lives, the girls drink, do drugs, sleep around, and fight with their parents and each other--but Foxes isn't the trashy melodrama you might expect. The writing and performances are surprisingly good, though it's no surprise that Foster (Taxi Driver, The Silence of the Lambs) stands out for sheer charisma and depth. Director Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction, Flashdance) demonstrates a deft hand for juggling the girls' multiple storylines. Also featuring Sally Kellerman (M*A*S*H), Randy Quaid (Kingpin, Independence Day), Scott Baio (television's Happy Days), and a brief appearance by a very young Laura Dern (Blue Velvet, Citizen Ruth). --Bret Fetzer

Aside from the patented soft-focus look and one "creepy old uncle" closeup tracking shot of sleeping teenage girls (under the opening credits) this early effort from director Adrian Lyne actually gives us substance over style for a change. With its pop soundtrack and teen angst themes, 1979's "Foxes" could have been dismissed at the time as an estrogen-rich flipside of "Saturday Night Fever". In hindsight, "Foxes" seems ahead of its time, presaging "Less Than Zero", "Kids" and "The Virgin Suicides". Jodie Foster leads a fine cast in this episodic tale of four L.A. girl pals dealing with growing pains at the height of the Sex Drugs & Rock&Roll Era. In this age of "Sex In The City" and the "American Pie" film franchise, you may find this hard to believe, but as a young male (at the time) I remember being shocked by the frank coversations the girls have about sex and relationships (when the boys have left the room!). Good performances all around, with "non actor" Cherie Currie (best known as lead singer of proto-grrrl band The Runaways) actually giving the most believable performance as a troubled druggie. Sally Kellerman (as Foster's mother) has some memorable scenes, and there is a notable cameo from Adam Faith (whom we sadly lost in 2003) as Foster's father. DVD notes: a Cheer to MGM for releasing this sleeper; but a Jeer for the audio transfer-I couldn't catch the dialog at times, and the music soundtrack is undermined by tinny equalization.

For those in denial, or for those who were painfully sheltered during those formulative years, this movie will seem slutty and bland. But for those of us in the real world, this speaks for us. Everyone knew a few of the girls - the boy-crazy, the innocent, the party girl, and/or the mother of the group. This is the essential clique within a clique presentation, the battles we had, the outside influences, and how hard it is to hang on to the inner self amid seeming chaos. Brilliant in its unpretentious acting style, this is high school after the plastic has been melted. Admit it.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film is something of a cautionary tale about the dangers of drug use, but underneath it, it also presents a very cynical view of humanity in general. Following the lives of four teenage girls in Los Angeles, circa 1979, it consists of episodes tied together by the thinnest of plot lines. Everything appears trashy, ugly and venal. The city is run down and dilapidated. The teenagers lead barren lives that alternate between mindless drunken brawls and bouts of despair. The adults are scarcely better, empty, dysfunctional, older but little wiser. All the characters are intellectually shallow. Still, there are some powerful moments. The dream-like soft-focus introduction contrasts the softness of the girl's bodies with the harshness of the environment they live in. Cherie Currie, herself a rock singer in real life, is completely believable as a drug-addicted delinquent who is sexually attracted to drug-pushing thugs. The one uplifting element is Jodie Foster's performance as the only person who remains caring and compassionate in a chaotic world.

I can't believe people are only giving this film two stars. In what other film can you see Jodie Foster , overwhelmed with teenage angst, come home from a night on the town and turn up "More than a Feeling" while she sulks on the couch. THIS IS A CLASSIC! Not to mention one of the greatest high school party scenes ever. The song "On the Radio" would mean nothing to me if it weren't for this film. Oh yeah, one more thing The Band "Angel" live in concert, performing their hit "20th Century Foxes"- you've got to watch for yourself, that's all there is to it. Don't rent it, buy it, believe me you'll watch it again & again. You haven't fully exprienced the 70's until you've seen this movie.

No other film for me portray the teenage life for what it really is then this film. It seems to me that after the liberal mentality to blame society and everybody else for your mistakes has ruined the teen films that came out in the eighties and nineties and to this day and age. Very few films have ever portrayed the teen angst as Foxes has. Other films would be "Born Innocent", "Sarah T. Portrait of a Teenage Alcholic" with Linda Blair, before she ruined her career making low budget horror films. Being a teen in the nineties I never saw a film show the ugly side of teenagers. Foxes did. All the movies I remembered were the big party movie where everyone gets drunk or finds love and everything was happily everafter before credits. Foxes didn't. Foxes shows a teen falling in love with an older man. No film would ever show that now. It's politically incorrect, but it does happen and I had a few of my friends get married to older guys. Not old, old. Foxes shows a party almost for what it really is. Good times and then that person, everyone hates will show and just ruin it. Had that really happen to me once. That is why I like this movie. It's one of my favorite. I found this small gem of a film one day after work. It reminded me of my life. Back when I was a teen and everything was a big drama and I thought my life was over. So if ever you want to show teens a small dose of reality have them check this movie out. It's the closes they might get to what hollywood thinks of a teenager. At the least then in the 70's they were doing it right.
