Product Description

Two teenage girls must come to terms with their stepfather when their mother is struck by illness. Stars Elizabeth Perkins, Scott Bakula.

From the Back Cover

Actress Elizabeth Perkins ("About Last Night...," "He said, She said") gives a bravura performance as "Mama," a quirky, eccentric single mother raising two daughters who are entering their awkward, trying teenage years. As their mother, provider, teacher and best friend, Mama shares with them her zest for life, in which the unconventional and unexpected are always just around the corner. "Normal," she claims, "is rather dull." But, true to form, there's one surprise she's neglected to tell her daughters: she has been carrying on a long-distance romance with Nick (Scott Bakula, "American Beauty," TV's "Enterprise") and had decided to uproot the family and move them from rural Georgia to Nick's home in Long Island, New York. And while her daughters struggle with the sudden addition of a new "Father" into their lives, there is yet another abrupt, startling revelation from Mama -- one that forces everyone to confront love, pain, loss and, ultimately, acceptance.

A seeringly powerful yet tender tale about the turmoil that young women often have to cope with. Wonderful performances by a young cast and even grander performances by the adults. Elizabeth Perkins and Scott Bakula have wonderful on screen chemistry.
Based on a true story, What Girls Learn, is 'almost' a chick flick. A strong and outspoken woman with two daughters falls in love with a man who changes their lives only to meet with tragedy. Yet, despite the 'down' parts, there is great humanity here. Can't imagine a dry eye in the house.

Look, I like movies about football and sports just like any other guy. But this movie is so well acted by youngsters who later become top stars in their own right---and Elizabeth Perkins' super performance as a quirky mom---I loved it. Good actors make good movies. This story-line is based upon Karin Cook's first novel and it's full of humor,fun, sadness and interesting characters. Also, it tells the story about a guy who didn't run away when things got tough. (Yeh, there are good guys out there.) Watch it with your family, but have some kleenex on hand for your unwaring female co-watchers.

Format: VHS Tape
The 3 leading ladies had no chemistry what so ever, even when the 3 dare share a bubble bath. The oldest daughter Tilden was the most hateful and unlikable girl I have ever seen. Not one convincing smile crossed her bland face. The lack of chemisty however had nothing to do with actress Elizabeth Perkins who is always a joy on screen. Also Scott Bakula was good too. It all boils down to heavy handed melodrama at it's dullest.
