Review Wanted: Girl, Interrupted

Have a sealed copy at home. Is it one worth opening/watching? Or should I return it for something else?

Can anyone give me a review and/or tell me what movie it might be similar to? I don't mind "chick flicks", but is it one?

Thanks.

I did not formally review this title so I cannot link you to a review. However, Mark with our review team did review it. You can read his review HERE. He apparently liked it a lot more than I did.

Girl, Interrupted has hardly a bad film. However, both my fiance and I were disappointed with it. I guess with all the Oscar-hoopla around Jolie's "Best Supporting Actress" win, we both expected a more moving, cohesive film than we got.

It's ok! It's a movie I'll pop in every 6 or so months. Unless I have a girl over who wants to watch it.

This is actually a decent film, and I hate Whoopi Goldberg and Winona Ryder.

It's an interesting movie. I thought everyone did a good job although Jolie seemed to almost "steal" the show from Ryder. My friend thought it was disturbing. I think it's more of a chic flic then something guys would really see over and over again, let alone buying. For you, I say just rent it.

The movie was better than I thought it would be. I don't know why Jolie won the Oscar, she just played the same patented pouty bad-girl that she plays in every movie she's in.
