DullBy LeoM (19 reviews) from London , 25 Aug 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Anjelina Jolie is very good in this, in fact all the cast are pretty good and the story is well acted. This however doesn't make up for the fact that this film is just plain dull. Its very depressing and rather tedious at times and you are left feeling that there's something missing. I can understand why some viewers will like this movie due to its characters and im sure that certain people will relate with some elements of the film but Girl Interrupted didn't do anything for me. If you must watch a film set in a mental institution then look no further than Cuckoo's nest.

Girl, InterruptedBy Tallos (60 reviews) from Surbiton , 15 Jun 2009Liked this one - reminded me a bit of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Good acting all round - reminded me how good ryder is, and is now the second film (mighty heart being the first) that showed me jolie can actually act pretty well!
Doesn't live up to its potentialBy a customer from Cambridge , 15 May 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThe film has good parts but is overall a bit slow and, frankly, boring. It doesn't go as deeply as it could into some of the fascinating and complex issues it touches on. It makes a few months in a mental asylum seem like a 'magical cure' for BPD when most people who know anything about it would say that's pretty unrealistic. Angelina Jolie is excellent and some good acting from the others too. But the film is a bit 'lightweight' and, as other have said, not a patch on 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'.
InterestingBy a customer from Bristol , 09 Apr 2009Angelina Jolie is very good but Winona Ryder is annoying and ultimately unbelievable as a person suffering from mental problems and I was more likely to believe she was just being her real life self
girl interuptedBy webbyzippy (15 reviews) from Rochdale , 05 Apr 2009good film kept my attention to the end
Serious stuffBy a customer from Burton-on-Trent , 04 Apr 2009This was not my cup of tea at all. However, Angelina Joley played a FANTASTIC role in this movie and she was the best thing about it for me.
