About the Movie
On the road to womanhood in the '70's, Vivian (Natasha Lyonne) is encountering two big bumps; her strangely nomadic family, always on the move yet desperate to stay in the Beverly Hills school district, and her blossoming sexuality. Add Viv's vivacious visiting cousin (Marisa Tomei) to the mix, and you've got an explosive coming-of-age story that proves you don't have to be rich to have first-class fun.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: All of [the cast members], especially Ms. Lyonne and Mr. Arkin, project a crazy sincerity that turns this personal and nostalgic comedy into a very true story indeed.
Fresh: What lifts this brash comedy above the vulgar herd is Tamara Jenkins in a heartfelt feature debut as writer and director.
Fresh: Funny, well acted comedy from a new director whose career shuld be watched
Rotten: There's an alchemy that can transform personal experience into a great film, but it was nowhere nearby when Tamara Jenkins wrote and directed this lacklustre first feature.
Im the first to write a review! ye (sqeal!) but is that the same girl from but im a cheerleader?
This is one of my most personal favorite monies of all time. A dysfunctional family at its best. I can't reccomend this movie enough!
Not Tamara, but Natasha !!!
