Riding in Cars with Boys Reviews:

I admit that I watched this film for the most frivolous of reasons: I liked Brittany Murphy's performance in the trailer ("My daughta's a tramp!"). I really never cared for Drew Barrymore, before. However, my opinion of her has changed. Drew place in an INCREDIBLE performance in this movie. She really nailed it. In fact, all of the actors gave commendable performances. I was so moved that I was quite uncomfortable for much of the movie. The pain that was portrayed was so true that I almost regretted buying what I thought was supposed to be a comedy. I'm glad I got through it - and an hour soon I'm still stunned by what I saw. This film is well worth seeing. Perhaps the reviewers who hated it don't understand that you can be repulsed by other person's behavior, but you don't have to accept with them. You don't have to agree their morals (or lack thereof) in order to recognize what they are going through. And perhaps in seeing these roles acted out, you will see someone you know who has touched your life. Perhaps you'll even see yourself. I profess to have high moral standards, but I was not offended by this movie. I just felt very sad. I've known folks like these characters. I don't feel that they were trying to justify their decisions.They were just saying a story. I also think that this film was a type of therapy for Beverly, who is standing up, triumphantly, shouting, "I went through a lot of crap and I made it!" Sure the viewer gets beaten up by this movie, but in a respectful way. This isn't a fairy tale. This is a storyline about true life. And true life is brutal.


While not belaboring this whole string of comments, I was glad that a couple of folks have already mentioned about getting the truth from the book, as opposed to this movie.The film itself is perfect and will hold you glued to your seat. Drew Barrymore did a phenomenal job in her portrayal of Beverly Donofrio, as Beverly is depicted in the movie meaning how the story was written - and it is definitely a story, but an enjoyable one nevertheless.I should barely search any similarities however between what took zone in the film and what now happened to Beverly in true life. Had they produced the film as the ebook was written, it would have been a much more intense drama with variety of sex, drugs and rock and roll, literally. Beverly Donofrio as depicted in the film is nothing short of a Miss Goody Two Shoes compared to how Beverly now was. But had the producers gone this route, it would have been very depressing to see.


It's a shame that this film can't be shown in high schools, as an educational video. It would certainly serve a terrific purpose, of how one tiny mistake can change the rest of your life forever.Beverly (Barrymore), at fifteen, falls in love with the quarterback of the football team. She decides one night at a party to present her love to him, by presenting him with a poem, she's written for him. Unfortunately, being as naive as she is, she presents it to him, in front of all of his friends, where she is then made fun of. Feeling sorry for herself, and very hurt, she runs upstairs to the bathroom, in the house where the party is taking place, crying. There, she meets the boy she will later fall for, and give herself to, for the very first time. However, this man is not the man she wants to marry, but is forced to, by her parents, because she is actually pregnant. At fifteen, and married, she is actually faced with a fresh life, and fresh responsibilities. The film circles around this fresh life, and how she is able to overcome so much, with so very little. Her deadbeat husband, tiny and terrible home, young kid to raise, and at time hopeless future, all gang up on her, while she tries to overcome all of it. Her dreams are not unrealistic, but rather unreachable because of all the issues and mishaps that happen throughout the next fifteen years of her life.It's poignant, sweet, funny and honest. There is not one person who will watch this, and not relate to at least one thing from the story. Although it may take zone in the 1960s-80s, it's still very real to life, and understandable.I would suggest it to anyone, and hope that everyone will see the power of a message this movie holds. It's really an nice real story, and there aren't many like this out there.
