The movie that inspired a generation of young women to fake a mental illness in order to get attention. Who the fuck cares.
Melodramatic, manipulative, and a real guilty pleasure for teenagers who desperately want to feel troubled!
Good chick flick
A wonderfully dark film. Jolie and Ryder play the parts flawlessly. Great acting and a great soundtrack.
Some good moments, but at its heart a sensationalized portrayal of women at a mental institution. And yeah, even with her bad hair, this movie couldn't fool me: Angelina's still hot. Hollywood just could not resist the urge to display "cRaZy chicks!" in all their sexy-hot dramatic glory.
Is it too much to ask for a Winona on Angelina lesbian scene? I mean honestly, a movie about chicks in an asylum/prison without one in this day and age?
Winona goes after an Oscar but it went to Jolie instead. She should give it back. This is a by the numbers Cuckoo's Nest that is mostly style and no substance. Very overrated in my opinion.
Based on a true story my ass. Based on one flew over the cuckoos nest....BUT WITH WOMEN.
Not a favorite of mine but it's nice to see a movie that both passes the Bechdel Test and holds my interest. The predominantly female cast is given every opportunity to shine with characters that are not one-dimensional and most of the actresses do a good job. My one complaint is that the entire story seemed to take place while they all simultaneously had their periods.
