Beautiful Girls (1996)

Synopsis: Unsuccessful pianist with commitment issues goes home to hang out with the local yokels.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “An all-star cast sparks this captivating comedy about a group of old friends whose 10-year high school reunion creates some hilariously unexpected surprises.”

What Did I Learn?: A woman probably won’t get terribly excited if you present her with a “champagne” (i.e. brown) diamond engagement ring.

You Might Like This Movie If: You’re in the mood to hear Rosie O’Donnell deliver a feminist rant (which contains a lot of many respects her monologue is the flip side of this).

Really?: Every grown man in a rural pub knows the words to “Sweet Caroline”? I don't think so...

Rating: Beautiful Girls is a well-written, good natured and surprisingly touching little comedy. 8/10 stars.

  1. This is one of those really great, under-rated movies with solid performances and an excellent script. I liked this one a lot. Agree with everything said above!
