Multi-talented, but heretofore little-known, director Katt Shea Ruben scored a brilliant, sudden and unusually highly successful stroke of genius in this highly erotic thriller about an under-privileged girl, newly admitted to a posh private school. Drew Barrymore brilliantly portrays Ivy, a sexy, street-wise and lethal Lolita that will do anything to fit in. Sara Gilbert portrays Cooper, a rich, smart, but misunderstood young feminist in search and need of a friend. Through Cooper, Ivy is ushered into a privileged world, and is instantly intrigued. Cooper's father (Tom Skerritt) is a handsome TV newscaster; her mother (Cheryl Ladd) is a beautiful Beverly Hills wife. Yet tensions in the home run deep, providing license for malice that Ivy is quick to seize. With one quick seduction, Ivy sets off a chain reaction that makes 'Poison Ivy' one of the most provocative and erotic films, of the erotic thriller genre, filmed to date. If you somehow missed this gem, give it a look soon. It is one of those very rare films you can enjoy again and again! Excellent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Posion Ivy on DVD November 7, 1999
By A Customer
The first of the "Poison Ivy" movies, were DrewBarrymore shines in her role as Ivy. New Line did it again this is agreat DVD it has the unrated and the R-rated versions of the movie and both in Full Screen and Widescreen versions. Othere than that and the Original trailer there is nothing intresting in the DVD. Some Commentary would have been great but I guess you don't get everything in life. If you like Drew Barrymore then Buy it its great.
(took off one start 'cuse there is no Commentary)

4.0 out of 5 stars Dangreous and Hot April 23, 2005
By Adam
Ivy is the new, crazy girl in school. Sylvie is the lonesome, geeky, rich girl. Once Ivy and Sylvie meet, they become pretty good pals. Sylvie invites her to ride home, she also invites Ivy into her house. She was making a deadly mistake.

Anyone can tell that something is definitely odd about Ivy, but she is charming to anyone around her. Sylvie's sick mother is always depressed, but when Ivy comes along, Sylvie's mother starts to love Ivy. Sylvie's dad is really starting to get closer to Ivy, too. But Sylvie herself starts to regret the day that she talked to Ivy, because Ivy is starting to ruin her life. But Ivy wants to stay in Sylvie's house, and whatever Ivy wants, Ivy gets.

This movie was really entertaining throughout the whole thing, and it always kept you wondering what horrible thing that the misuderstood Ivy was going to do next. You were always trying to understand Ivy, wanting to know more about this strong character. This movie was chilling and definitely sexy, and overall, it's a good film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Deadly Friend October 5, 2004
By Karen
Sara Gilbert (from TV's "Roseanne") plays Cooper, a lonley teenager who befriends the new wild girl in school, Ivy, (Drew Barrymore). The two become best friends and Ivy eventually moves in with her. But Ivy isnt what she seems to be. Her sweet personality is only a mask covering her darker, evil side. Ivy has a plan to throw their friendship away and destroy Cooper's life. She starts by seducing her father, murdering her mother, and literally stealing Cooper's life from her. Once Cooper realizes whats shes up to, she tells her to get lost. But Ivy isnt about to go anywhere. An Edge Of The Seat Thriller!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms. Barrymore is exquisite as the young Poison. July 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A fine cast in a well-directed niche film. Tom Skerritt underplays the role, as usual, to great effect. But the real attraction is Drew Barrymore in a role that seems as if it had been written for her. Wise and wonderful beyond her years... she displays her more than ample talents in a venue more suited to her than the witless comedies than she apparently prefers in the latter part of the decade.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would you like to be Ivy? April 10, 2008
By Meesha
I bought this DVD on a whim. I originally bought the sequel - with Alyssa Milano, cos I'm having serious withdrawal symptoms from Charmed - and since it seems to be stupid to have the sequel without the original, I bought the original.

Set in somewhere extremely rainy (it rains pretty much every other scene), Sylvie meets a girl who she calls Ivy, because of the tattoo transfer of a cross with ivy at the bottom. (Do we ever find out her real name? Cos all 'Ivy' says when Sylvie says that's her name, is: "It gives me a chance to start over." And she later gets the tattoo for real and he charged her $40??? I wish my tattoos were that cheap!) They quickly become best friends, and Ivy tries to fit into her friend's family pretty much by seducing the father and killing the mother. Some friend huh?

This should have been one of those movies that is all nude scene after nude scene after nude scene. With any other actress I think it probably would have been. But with Drew Barrymore at the helm, it became something more than that, almost touching at times. There are some weird moments, like why the parents never question why Ivy is always there; her mother lending Ivy her clothes and the father leering from afar.

Drew Barrymore, and the majorly big haired Sara Gilbert were the shining stars in this movie. Funnily enough they later starred in Riding In Cars With Boys together, where I didn't even realise it was the same girl in that as it was in Poison Ivy.

Also look out for Leonardo Di Caprio in this - a blink and you'll miss him scene. I blinked. I didn't know he was in it, until the credits rolled. I must have completely missed him.

Poison Ivy is a little gem of a movie, which will make you remember your best friends in high school and wonder if they could have ever turned out like Ivy did. Very strange movie, but well worth seeing if you can get it for cheap.
