Yo! Does this bitch ALWAYS talk in exclamation marks?

User Review

Bad influence? I think not!

Rating: 10/10

I've always loved watching Angelina Jolie on screen… but watching her in
"Foxfire" quite literally gave me *chills* (and still does). When Legs
first walks into Maddy's classroom and they do that long, slow pan up – from
head to foot – of Legs, you can instantly feel Angie's incredible magnetism
and presence.

As much as people would like to point out the negative aspects of this film
– that violence of any sort is "unladylike" or just plain wrong coming from
females – "Foxfire" has got many more positive ones on its side.

Maddy and Legs' relationship is one of the warmest, most heartfelt I've ever
seen portrayed on film … Legs is not so much a maternal figure as she is a
supportive driving force. She teaches each of the girls to respect
themselves and not be ashamed or afraid to be who they are. If anything, I
think it's Maddy that's the maternal one … directing her loving and
protective instincts towards Legs. Maddy teaches Legs to open up her heart
and stop *running* long enough to realize that some people *can* love you
and not abandon you (like her father) or die (like her mother). She teaches
her to care again… to love again.
