5.0 out of 5 stars When will it be on DVD?? April 4, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
C'mon Paramount, you have to release this on DVD. I know the video was re-released sometime in the 90's, but DVD quality is so much better. Kristy McNichol and Tatum O'Neal do an awesome job as they battle each other over the loss of their virginity, but to their friends demise, the two become good friends. The movie has a lot of taste and certainly reflects a "sign of the times" from 1980.

Oh, and when it gets released, per previous reviews, I hope they reinstate all the original songs, such as the end credit song "Let your love flow". I know you can do it, "The Pirate Movie", (another Kristy McNichol favorite) was finally released on DVD, and I sure jumped on that one, so now I am ready for this one to be released! It's a must.

3.0 out of 5 stars Music is a very important element February 12, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I loved this movie when I was 15 and still do. I hope to watch it with my daughter in a couple of years. What really disappointed me was the fact that they changed the music for several scenes. Not only the Bellamy Brothers Let Your Love Flow that played over the credits, but the lovely and haunting Oh My Love by John Lennon that played when Angel went to the cabin with Randy as well as others were replaced by some very boring and unknown songs. To me, music is an integral part of a movie experience. This let me down.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD PLEASE!!!!!!!! May 15, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Little Dralings is definately in my top ten favourite movies of all time. Its got a great sountrack, fantastic clothes and hair cuts form the era and a feel-good story line that always manages to cheer me up. Little Darlings is the celluloid equivalent of chicken soup!

My only question is:

1.0 out of 5 stars Here's how to report these bogus DVDs October 8, 2010
Format:VHS Tape
Go to and report these bogus DVDs. This movie was not released in DVD format, so obviously this listing is for pirated material (at a hundred-fifty bucks, it's downright robbery!)

5.0 out of 5 stars see it March 24, 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
tatum oneal and christie mcnichol playing ferris and angel, one girl from the high society and one from the inner city with a car that puts out more smoke and bang than it does drive. both girls though totally different are dealing with things with their parents and the confusion and pains of growing up. they meet on a camp bus and are quickly targeted by the camp tramp who puts them against one another (even more than them being completly different did naturally) in a competition to see who will lose their virginity first. wow, another part of growing up....> PEIR PRESSURE.. lol
well the story isnt dull by any means, its funny, its cute and despite the fact that your kid should atleast be about 13 before they see it, i dont see why a kid should have to wait and see it when their 17 because of an r rating because if this film was done in todays time it would have been pg-13, no question. "down to me" with freddie prince jr and julia styles was trashy in comparison sexually and not done in the humor that this film is done.
the soundtrack is great, followes in with the times with music from "let your love flow" to john lennon. your gonna love "little darlings"...
its a story of finding true friendship, breaking down barriers from different lifestyles, lost youth, peir pressure, first loves, rebellion (gotta love it when christie mcnichol (angel) decides to get her guy drunk so hell get turned on and he passes out with her saying "your suppose to get turned on stupid not pass out". ) and somewhere in the mix finding people inside of your parents.
tatum oneal is great in her role and she is the reason i saw it in the first place (i was hooked after paper moon) but i have to say that matt dillon and christie mcnichol truly shine in this movie. almost litterally, theirs like a shine or a spark to the way they are on the screen in the film. makes ya laugh and smile and ache for more of the movie...

2.0 out of 5 stars Movie is still great, changing the music isn't! January 1, 2004
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Wow, it's been years since I've seen this movie and it's still funny and very touching, but why on earth did they change the music? I hate that they took the Bellamy Brothers song from the end credits and even worse? They took out John Lennon's "Oh My Love" song which was a haunting part of the movie during that scene in the boathouse. They ruined the re-issue. ARGGH!! That stuff is all part of the nostalgic charm of that movie, in my opinion. When it comes out on DVD, I sure hope they restore it back to the original way it was. I don't like this VHS version at all because of the changes, so I'll be reselling it eventually.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice HD Transfer in Widescreen Format April 29, 2009
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I recently rented and watched this. It was a treat to see this in widescreen format. This is the original theatrical release, complete with original music ("Oh My Love", "Let Your Love Flow", etc.). I hope this comes out on Blu-Ray/DVD sometime. I would definitely purchase it.
