From celebrated director Penny Marshall comes the story of a girl who did everything wrong but got everything right. Make way for Beverly (Drew Barrymore), a smart, beautiful young woman who can't wait to grow up, much to the frustration of her police sergeant father (James Woods). Her life takes its first detour when she gets pregnant at age sixteen. The baby's father, her husband (Steve Zahn), turns out to need more mothering than her newborn son. But through all the trouble, Beverly makes a life that's more than she ever imagined and lives a story that's waiting to be told. Join the ride and watch Beverly kick life where it counts.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The rough edges of Donofrio's life are either ignored or smoothed away, replaced by broad laughs and easy sentiment.
Rotten: Every scene is coated with Marshall's thumbprints, ultimately connecting into a manhandled, mangled, misshapen whole, its themes written out in thunderously obvious cues.
Fresh: A film with honesty, sincerity and a great big heart.
Fresh: Even though it outstays its welcome and is quite heavy-handed in its guy-bashing, it benefits from stellar performances by its stars.
a bit dramatic, but..
but this movie is not a waste if you want to take a ride in a completely drama filled life! even though this movie takes place in a different period of time.. the problem happens today! FYI- be prepared to cry.
Unbealivable! I was so touched when i frist saw this movie. The story it's self is heart warming but when you mix a good movie with Drew Barrymore you are guarenteed to have a sucess. Drew just brings so much life to this charcter and she didn't sugar coat it either. Drew is so nice i think that she had a tough time with being Beverly. Not that you can tell because she was amazing. Drew just has so much talent that it's unreal. Also I love the character Bev she is one of the stongest women that i have ever seenand I give her so much credit for all that she's done in her life and all the struggles she had to go through. And Drew just made Bev that much better. I love you Drew and i wish you a long happy life!
