Abe Sylvia wrote and directed a wonderful movie about growing up that makes the entire audience cheer, laugh and cry. He does this trough magical chemistry between both lead characters, great plot development and really smart humor. This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. I highly recommend it to anyone that has a witty sense of humor! All I can say is that this movie is for those with a high IQ!As for those posting about the hair/makeup/costumes, clearly you have no sense of humor and have never opened a 1987 Norman High School Yearbook. The movie is set in 1987 Norman <more>
Oklahoma not Los Angeles. Everyone looked like that, even if you don't want to remember yourself that way!
Everything about this movie is great. The story, the soundtrack, the characters, the way it was filmed, literally everything. When I choose to watch this movie I didn't know what to expect since I didn't read summaries or watch a trailer. The reason I choose to watch this movie is because of the actress Juno Temple, who by the way did a good job. I loved her connection with Clarke, their strong friendship made the movie very interesting and their adventure and road trip made the movie enjoyable. The movie isn't all happy though, there are some sad moments. It is definitely a tear <more>
jerker especially if you can relate to the story. However, the ending is quite satisfying and I wouldn't have it another way. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has a good sense of humor and anyone who enjoys a good story line with a great lesson.
Singer/Songwriter Melissa Manchester was the musical guide through my lonely days as a scared, closeted preacher's kid in Porterville, CA in the late 70s and early 80s. It is thrilling to see a movie that celebrates not only her music, but the particular way she made life easier for untold numbers of gay kids like me. I went to see this movie for her music, but it's also a terrific film! The cast is fantastic and the performances are genuine. It's an engaging story with humor, wit and depth. In lesser hands, heartfelt films like this can easily be lost. Rest assured, this is a <more>
triumph at every level. THANK YOU, Abe Sylvia and all involved with this film! I left smiling and will see it again and again.
I saw Dirty Girl at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010 and it was amazing!!! I thought it had a good blend of drama and comedy therefore when things got heavy or sad I didn't get depressed or too down because a few scenes later I would be laughing.I thought it was the best portrayal of the beauty of a relationship between a gay man and a straight woman since Will & Grace. It also had a great soundtrack. I can't wait to have a movie night at my house with this movie. It was just a fun movie with depth. No academy award worthy performances in my opinion but the acting <more>
is definitely good but no mind blowing performances.My fav film of TIFF 2010
The dirty, pretty things films give us (by StevePulaski)
"Nobody likes a dirty girl," Principal Mulray Grubbs tells Danielle Temple early on. She is a promiscuous adolescent, full of life, spunk, attitude, and guts. But she comes from a background that isn't so full of life and gutsy. Her mother Jovovich was a tramp in high school and because of that Danielle has never heard of or met her real father. After discovering her father's real identity, she packs up and hits the road going across Oklahoma to find him. She also does it to avoid her mother's new Mormon fiancée Macy and his outlandish punishment of virtually <more>
abandoning one of their own to show how important family is. My guess anyone would abandon him at first chance.Danielle takes the car of her chubby, homosexual friend from Sex Ed. class Clarke played fantastically by Jeremy Dozier . Clarke's father Yoakam has been verbally and physically abusive to his son for many years and is only further outraged to find out of his sexual orientation. Thankfully, the film, mostly, doesn't play Clarke's sexuality for laughs. We have a strong sense that he can't help his feelings, and is dealing with them in the only way he knows how to. Guys and girls alike proclaim their love for the opposite sex, why can't Clarke? Danielle and Clarke also take a sack of flour their "baby" from Sex Ed. class along on the ride and boy does the kid get the journey of her life.Dirty Girl is an exciting, sort of refreshing gem that mimics not only the eighties style of rebellion, but bathes in a surprisingly dramatic bath of coming of age storytelling. Going into this expecting a solid comedy with laughs and humor galore, I was stunned to see how heavy the dramatic elements are. In many ways, this is a very sad view on one's adolescence and sometimes the laughs we get are because of insecurity and stem from the fact that their true feelings are hidden.There's also a nice blend of wit and soul in the writing. In some ways this could be an account of writer/director Abe Sylvia's life. He grew up homosexual in Oklahoma and had been working on this story since around 2004. The film's bawdy nature is fast paced and entertaining, but Dirty Girl seems to stem from a world a lot more sentimental in emotions than we could've thought.For an independent film, it certainly packs in some credible names. Milla Jovovich is a nice addition to the cast, Temple is very convincing, Dozier is the star of the entire film, Macy is about ten miles away from his character of Frank Gallagher in Shameless, and Tim McGraw and Dwight Yoakam are delightfully unexpected.In many ways Dirty Girl is funny, charming, delightful, and satisfying. In many ways it's dark, sad, depressing, and begging to be loved. We have two insecure characters that go about their insecurity in totally different ways. One, giving herself up to anyone and everyone, and the other just sitting by idly in high school taking the hatred from his peers and probably his classmates. It's a sad world after all.Starring: Juno Temple, Jeremy Dozier, Milla Jovovich, William H. Macy, and Dwight Yoakam. Directed by: Abe Sylvia.
The most fun film i've seen in a long time, long live Juno Temple. (by JimmyCollins)
Dirty Girl is a lot of things, it's a terrific 80's film, it's a terrific acting ensemble, it's a wonderful story of friendship, but above all it's just a really fun time, a really entertaining and fun film. Juno Temple is a great young actress, she has been consistently impressive throughout her career, from dramatic roles to small indie roles to comic gold roles such as this she always makes an impression and is always memorable. Her performance is Dirty Girl is in my opinion her finest so far, she is certainly very well suited to comedic roles and I hope she does a lot <more>
more of this kind of thing.There's not a bad performance throughout, newcomer Jeremy Dozier gives an extremely brave performance, his character is put into some rather awkward situations and he acts his way through them all with such pizazz, you're instantly fascinated with his character, I loved him a lot, and the supporting cast are just as exceptional, Milla Jovovich is her usual awesome self and Mary Steenburgen is lovely as the supportive mother, weak at first but supportive all the way of her gay son. The soundtrack is amazing, a film such as this would be nowhere near as great as it is without the wonderful array of 80's songs, half the time I felt like busting a groove. The storyline is really such a nice story and one I haven't seen told in this way, the two leads are almost like the odd couple but have such great chemistry, the friendship that blossoms between them is very sincere and sweet. Fabulous, times ten, with a swell cast, a truly excellent soundtrack and a lovely story, I would highly recommend seeing Dirty Girl, it's an exceptionally fun time. Loved it. Loved it.
A fun and quirky film... perfect for the open minded (by beaucheri33)
I'm a cliché artsy girl form NYC and often i look forward to films like these.. you know the little indie gems that not many people have heard of.. Dirty Girl was like a treat for me and i can watch it again and again.It's not a perfect film and definitely not mainstream, but absolutely entertaining. Juno Temple couldn't have played this part any better as a young promiscuous teenage girl who seems confident and unafraid to conquer the world but is actually quite vulnerable and easily broken.. Clark was so lovable as the fat gay best friend and hopeless romantic, even with all <more>
their flaws , the chemistry between them was outstanding, and me and mom couldn't help but to laugh at the different emotions from the bag of flour and to adore the cool soundtrack she's an 80's chick so it was inevitable ..The journey was so fun to watch that i didn't want it to end, part of me had wished that Danielle and Clark could have ran away and started a new life together.. that would have been epic, but by the end of the film it was easy to admire the writers for thinking outside the box and reminding me why i love films like these so much ~
A very surprising and good movie that deals with some heavy subjects. A movie that deserves to be watched I say A- (by cosmo_tiger)
"If it's a man's world God wouldn't have made me." Danielle Temple lives life on her own terms. When her mouth gets her in trouble at school she is sent to the "special" classroom. After an assignment pairs her up with a school loser her life is forever changed. The saying goes don't judge a book by it's cover, that could not be more true for this movie. The first ten minutes is what you would expect but from then on it becomes an emotional movie that deals with some pretty heavy subjects. The acting is great in this and there is an all-star cast <more>
along with some surprising cameos. If I keep talking I am afraid I will give something away and that would do the movie an injustice. Much like the movie "Good Old Fashioned Orgy" I think that the movie would get a better audience if the title was different. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie. Overall, a very surprising movie that was much much better then I expected. I give it an A-.
It starts so badly you wonder why keep going, but do keep going. It's great! (by secondtake)
Dirty Girl 2010 The movie starts with such stupidity and what seems like terrible acting and movie-making you're going to want to quit. Unless you're a high school kid looking for cheap thrills and there ain't anything wrong with that--it's just a style thing . But hang in there. This movie gets better and better and better. By the end all the hilarity crashes down to a weepy finale--more convincing than it has any right to be after all the zany stuff prior.It's mostly about two high school kids who don't fit in. They seem like opposites and we all know how fun <more>
opposite are in movie comedies. One is slutty girl Danielle who has a dysfunctional home life and who is wild partly because she's bored by school and is it turns out smarter than the cliché would have it. The other is an overweight kid Clarke who knows he's gay and who is afraid of coming out but everyone knows already anyway. He also has a dysfunctional family, and the movie eventually also clashes the two sets of parents and accessory kin .The plot moves fast and turns into a crisis and then a road trip. All good stuff. And it's filmed with an openminded low-budget freedom that makes it fun and doesn't always worry about verisimilitude. The two leads are in a family planning class, for example, and are given a bag of flour they have to treat as their new baby. The bag has a face drawn on it in magic marker, and the face changes depending on what's going on around it. Her--it's a girl. But mostly it's the acting of Danielle Juno Temple , and Clarke Jeremy Dozier , that makes it all stick. Temple in particular is just oozing and exploding with energy and dramatic screen presence, whether being saucy or sassy, fun or sad. She takes over every scene and you want her to. Danielle drives a red 1965 Mustang convertible of course--what else? . She knows what matters and who's a jerk and doesn't put up with crap. She's troubled, but all along you know she's basically right, and you end up totally on her side. And on Clarke's side, too, as he tries to make sense of his world now that someone accepts him without even blinking.Eventually there is a deliberate Hollywood ending, complete with tears and spotlights on the stars. It's a farce, I suppose, or a silly over the top romp, and there are going to be people who never let it click. Humor is fickle. But once I was a good half hour in and it took that long, unfortunately , but once I was, there was no going back. It's worth sticking it out. Very worth it.
