Angelina Jolie was great in this role.

I think the ending would have been much better if that had happened.

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.

...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.

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.

Format: DVD
Upon first viewing I was disappointed, I felt the story left so many questions and I didn't understand the relationship between the girls, particularly the two main characters, Maddy, played by Hedy Burress, and Legs, played by Angelina Jolie. The plot moves so fast and the characters become so close so quickly, I didn't know how and why they got from point A to point B. To answer my questions I went straight to the source and read the book, then I re-viewed the movie. It was then that I fell in love. The adaption was brilliant, the story was slightly different but the movie kept the book's important elements, the most important being the characters. The producers of this film couldn't have picked anyone better than Angelina Jolie, who displays many of the same qualities of her character, Legs. Angelina Jolie's portrayal is so real, yet she is so dreamlike, etherial, and addictive. These people put together as one is a lethal combination for both the audience and the other characters within the story. As a movie on its own, it's entertaining but I would recommend reading the book then watching the movie. The combination truly gives you an understanding for the story and the characters, more-so than just doing one without the other.

Great movie, for anyone. The plot mostly stayed true to real life events, how someone can come into your life within the blink of an eye and force you to look at yourself and inspire change. The way Angelina Jolie's character changes these girl's lives is inspirational, some become strong, one questions her sexual identity, all of them evaluate themselves... Although the end of the movie throws you off a bit and becomes somewhat surreal, the portrayal of unexpected bonding, unexpected friendship, unexpected love, and unexpected choices gives this movie enough reality to stir your emotions for a very long time.

When Foxfire first came out, I had no interest to watch it at all. Recently I became a huge Angelina Jolie fan. The main reason to watch the movie was her. Jolie is great as usual. She gives everything into her character and is very good. The reason that films like these don't get as much publicity as their male counterparts is because they are all are so stereotyped and labeled. And while the generalization about most "female bonding" films is true, the same could be said about the men. And what makes each film stand apart is the emotion and ideas of the characters. The plot is based on real life situations, and the characters and the charisma they deliver is what makes the film so liberating and exciting to watch. The girls are learning life lessons, growing up, experimenting, facing hard issues and learning to cope and understand each other.

Angelina Jolie has some brilliant lines and poses as an almost Mother-like figure, affecting their lives forever, sheltering and explaining, and persuading the girls to take an extra risk, or risks, rather. It's very intimate and she does an incredible job playing "Legs". It isn't meant to represent what all girls do, and don't bother looking for a movie about lesbians guys. It gets very ethereal at points and made a point about bonding and unity. Don't bother looking for deep intellectual comments either, because the most poignant scenes are sullen and the actresses use their eyes over words.

The opening scenes are good, the way they introduce the oppressed victims, and you see the wide-eyed looks as are often given by people who are afraid - but who will later look for comfort in Legs and her new-found posse. It is all set up very well.
