When working on this film, Angelina Jolie stated "I would probably have married Jenny if I hadn't married my husband. I fell in love with her the first second I saw her." The Jenny she referenced is Jenny Shimizu. See more »
When aired on television the scene where the girls are shopping is edited out. This is because there is strong sexual dialogue throughout, this will confuse viewers because later on in the movie Rita is asked if she ate any meat and potatoes. This is one of the slang terms used by Violet to describe male genitalia. See more »
Four teenage girls are joined by Legs (played by Jolie). Experiencing various teenage anxieties and failed communication with parents, they form a strong emotional bond which is augmented by events in which they take part together and into which they are drawn. Supporting each other, they play the role of both friend and family to each other.
The plot deals with the isolation of late teenage from mainstream society and one's parents' generation, and the communication divide which neither parents nor children seem to be able to bridge easily during these years. Another theme is what too much pain and abandonment in the early years can do to you, and how good people can clash with a society trying to do the right thing, but getting it wrong.
