    Beautiful Girls is always in touch with reality but never drowned in it. [19 February 1996, p.64]

    The movie was directed by Ted Demme, with a light touch that allows the humor to survive in spite of the gloomy thoughts and the bleak, dark, frozen winter landscape.

    OK so I cannot issue a full review as I stopped watching at 59 minutes in, had seen enough to realize my life did not need to waste a furtherOK so I cannot issue a full review as I stopped watching at 59 minutes in, had seen enough to realize my life did not need to waste a further 50 minutes watching this dated flick.

    Would I recommend, maybe in 1996,..then again most likely not ever.

    Portman, Plimpton and O'Donnell make the film. The only one of Portman's films I've seen that measures up to The Professional.
