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.

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.

This was a very beautiful film. When I rented it, I had to watch it three times. Now I want to buy it. The music was excellent. The best song was "I Don't Want To Think About It" by the Wild Strawberries. I just had to cry in this movie. The ending is sad, but it's also happy in a way. Believe me, this is NOT just another stupid chick flick. Foxfire is emotional and it shows you the true value of friendship. I recommend it to all girls and even guys.

I love the book by Joyce Carol Oates, which made it hard to like this radically different story. However, I did like Maddy and Legs, the two main characters, but the other characters that made it into the movie are not well developed at all. And the 5 that make up the group "Foxfire" are strangers at the beginning of the movie who we are expected to assume half way through the movie with virtually no dialogue amongst them are closer than sisters.

If you do accept this assumption the second section of the movie will draw you into their world. They are tough, together and having fun. But then again there is a quick shift and the ending flashes through major life events like losing a loved one, crime and drug addiction with no real depth.

Even with drastic cutting from the book the movie obviously tried to tackle too much of that great story and ended up with very little of the sincere connection these girls had and the motivation that their connection gave them to fight against anyone who tried to endanger the closeness of the group.

Read the book, and if you watch the movie don't expect too much from the plot, focus on the two main characters and you might be able to enjoy it.
