A 36D of a Movie!
This was a very pleasant surprise. It's hilarious and nostalgic (especially
if you're a woman in her mid-thirties), but also really meaningful and
moving. This movie is a highly original and often painfully accurate
depiction of female adolescence -- from bras to blood stains.
The whole cast is wonderful. Natasha Lyonne is amazing -- I haven't been so
captivated by an actress since I saw Emily Watson in "Breaking the Waves."
Alan Arkin -- where has he been? -- is wonderful as her father, and Marisa
Tomei is outrageous, but not over the top, as her sexy rehab-escapee
cousin. Marisa and Natasha are particularly amusing in their scenes
together, where they often speak a private language not unlike "ubby-dubby"
(remember ZOOM?). The vibrator scene is not to be missed -- you'll never
hear "We Got the Funk" the same way again!
I've been very disappointed with a lot of the highly-touted indies of the
past few years, but "Slums of Beverly Hills" is the genuine article. I can
't wait to see Tamara Jenkins' next film!.

Pufnstuff & Cereal
This is a movie with well-drawn characters you can really relate to.
Much like Ben and Ricky, I also enjoy sitting around in my
tight-whities, eating Trix and watching H.R. Pufnstuf.
That scene brought back memories. I also learned the hard way that you
can't trade cereal for drugs.
Sadly, Vivian was too busy obsessing over puberty, etc. to realize the
answer to all her problems would be to have her hair straightened.
People with curly hair are not like the rest of us. Science has proved
that their brains are so busy growing hair in weird spirals, that they
don't think as good as us normal people..
