Foxes is an ambitious attempt to do a film relating to some of the not-so-acceptable realities among teenagers that ends up delivering far less than it is capable of.

Story of four teenage girls and their battles often becomes a depressing, one-sided and melodramatic treatise on American youth.

It soon becomes clear this is not the usual gaggle of girls portrayed as typical American teenagers. Cherie Currie is a stoned-out former hooker, Marilyn Kagan is an unhappy, overweight fat girl longing to shed her parents’ protective shell, Kandice Stroh is a lying, confused flirt and Jodie Foster is a level-headed intellect.

Constant switching of action between the girls causes Stroh’s character to be lost mid-way and Foster’s identity to never fully be explored despite the fact she’s the focal point.
