| It's cute and good for a laugh.
Wishing to lift our spirits before jumping into a heavily themed discussion about "The Great Gatsby," my teacher showed our class this short and enjoyable story. She described it as a "chick-flick" and perhaps she was right. I found it entertaining and one could easily identify with the b***hy Marjorie or timid Bernice. Marjorie was the average girl who was popular and had boys aching to dance with her, while Bernice was her homely, boring cousin staying for a summer visit. Naturally, Marjorie felt she was superior to Bernice and felt like her vapid cousin's inability to socialize was ruining her whole summer. What followed a slow beginning was a light-hearted and funny transformation of Bernice. You will be shocked at the end.

The picture quality was rather poor and at times it was hard for a young child of the 80's like me to understand what they were saying. However, these unpleasant elements did not detract from my enjoyment of the story. The characters and plot were all believable. Although the ending was fitting and a splendid example of poetic justice, my whole class was left wanting to see more. See this film if you like to see film adaptations of Fitzgerald's and do not care for high-tech contemporary films.

I'd give it a 7/10...for now.
