I love this movie. It's on my top ten list. Drew Barrymore plays a young outcast girls that befriends a rich girl and immediately starts moving in with her and trying to steal everything from her, her life, her family, everything. Drew Barrymore is so obsessed that she tries to be part of the family. But the strange thing is that the girl is obsessed with Drew and just can't let her go. Great movie, I love it so much 10/10
You'll be "Itching" to watch this movie! (by GOWBTW)
This movie got a lot of nerve and a lot of passion, you won't forget. Trying to fit in isn't always easy. When the new girl is around it's hard whether to hang with her or stay away from her. "Poison Ivy" is an excellent movie all the way. Drew Barrymore really display the term "bad girl" all the way through. Having the rope between her bare legs will make any guy sweat like crazy. And the intensity level is so high it can put a healthy person in the hospital in ICU Intensive Care Unit . Sara Gilbert, Melissa's sister role is no different from her role in <more>
"Roseanne". Living with her rich father Darryl Cooper Tom Skerritt, "Picket Fences" , whose wife Cheryl Ladd, "Charlie's Angels'" Kris is very sick. What's worse that Mr. Cooper is seduced by Ivy's wiles and will do anything to ruin the family. The rain scene is the ultimate love scene that steals this movie. Who knows that the rain in the woods would bring out the sexual nature in all species. Knowing that Ivy's gone too far, Sylie go at all lengths to stop her, and all Ivy got was the blue stone in her dead palm. The only thing she really wanted. A little too late. Sometime certain people need to choose their friends carefully, this movie will sure know how. Rating 9.5 out of 5 stars.
"Ivy's best friend had the perfect father...the perfect life...so she took them (by antipas2000)
DVD synopsis:One look and you can tell she's trouble. The bleached blonde hair, the pouting lips, the skirt just short enough to show off the tattoo on her thigh. But Cooper Sara Gilbert , herself an outsider, like the newcomer's style. She befriends her and before long the loner she nicknames Ivy Drew Barrymore becomes part of Cooper's family. But for Ivy a handful of home comforts is not nearly enough. She becomes obsessed by desire for Cooper's father and vows that no-one, least of all Cooper's mother, is going to stop her from having him. And so the household is <more>
drawn into a web of deadly attractions where sex, lies, even murder are the weapons in a terrifying fight for survival.Well, the back of the DVD tells you enough, but let me tell you why i give this film 10/10.Drew Barrymore plays one hell of sinister character here. The title of the film portrays what this film is all about, so perfectly that I have fallen in love with this film. It will always be one of the best of its kind, for all time. Drew Barrymore is like poison here, infecting and taken over everything in her path. But to every Antagonist, there must be a Protagonist. All in all, this film has a certain passion to it and however deadly the "new friend" is, it is a beautifully told story that has a perfect beginning, middle and end. So much that I wish I had been the man to write this story for the film. 10/10 - absolutely!
A movie that's more about loneliness than it is an erotic thriller (by Firefly-28)
I really enjoyed the two main characters in the movie - Cooper played by Sara Gilbert and Ivy Drew Barrymore is brilliant in this character . The film focuses on there friendship and feeling alone as a teenager. I really liked the dialogue between the characters. Especially when Ivy meets Cooper's mother played by Cheryl Ladd and talks about her own mother and how she flinched every time she touched her and how she died long before she really did. It's just great. Ivy's loneliness soon starts to evaporate as she gains a mother in Chery Ladd, a friend in Sara Gilbert, <more>
but then she sets her eyes on Cooper's father played by Tom Skerrit and wants him in an intimate way. And this is where the movie starts to get erotic as she seduces her best friend's father. But Cooper is starting to see Ivy's evil intentions .....
A teenage thriller that manages to avoid the cliché. Quite underrated. (by moviedude-72)
Poison Ivy is a beautifully filmed, atmospheric tale of teenage angst and the meltdown of a wealthy American family. It centers the seductive, manipulative teenager Ivy played by Drew Barrymore , who wreaks havoc on her newly found wealthy, but dysfunctional family, which she basically bought her way into through her new friend the introverted Sylvie Cooper played by Sara Gilbert . As Ivy slowly works her way into the disrupted family, she seduces Cooper's farther played by Tom Skerritt and goes as far as killing Cooper's ill mother, played by Cheryl Ladd, post Charlie's <more>
Angels and attempts to replace her.... Ivy even claims the family dog! Eventually, as the film progresses, a duel between Cooper and Ivy ensures as it becomes clear Ivy has some deep psychological problems.First of all, Poison Ivy is admittedly, a very trashy film in some moments. Its on the verge of being an art-house, exploitation film perhaps something along the lines of Pretty Poison, Lolita or Basic Instinct, it even bears some similarities to American Beauty, as both films exert a plot that centers a dysfunctional family on the verge of disintegration. There is a great deal of sexuality in this film, but I am going to be honest and say there is also an abundance of well-performed, written and filmed material, however it shifts gears in the last half-an hour, turning into a overly clichéd Hitchcock-style thriller, loosing its mystique and unique style it inhabited in the earlier moments. Barrymore, however, is top-notch in one of the most memorable performances of her career. Skerrit is excellent as the cynical, brooding husband, and Gilbert is likewise as the angst-ridden teenage daughter. Ladd is also dazzling in a supporting role as the fragile, disturbed mother on the verge of a breakdown.Poison Ivy possess a very strong, erotic and hypnotic nature that lets the film rise above the average made-for-TV thriller. Perhaps could have been more effective with a less obvious ending.9.1/10 -Luke Rowe
This movie is really one of the best teen films I've ever seen. It is about mysterious seductive girl who somehow draws the attention of an introverted girl who thinks the girl is slutty, but likes her anyway. She not only wins over sylvie's good graces but also on the rest of her family and her dog. While the mother lays dying in bed with a terminal illness, drew barrymore's character took advantage of this situation and seduces him, knowing he wasn't getting any sex from his wife . With his dying wife While slyvie gradually watch her new friend take over her life , by first <more>
getting her dog to like ivy and then earning the mother good graces. Slyvie seems like a very insecure person to me because I think she knew ivy kinda wanted to used her after she started buying stuff with constantly but I guess she thinks a freeloader is better than no relationship at all. Sylvie's insecurity really shows when she gets mad that her dog ,who is the only person her dog doesn't bark at , when the dog starts taken a liken to ivy.Definitely an underrate film. I think solid performances were both given by all the actors . The music score set the tone for the film perfectly because I think it matches the mood of the film very well. Ivy wants two from Slyvie apparently : to replaced the dying mother and to be the new sexual lover for Slyvie's father that gradually died away from sylvie's mother when she acquired emphysema. sylvie's mother and ivy had something in common that sylvie wanted from both of them: Slyvie wanted ivy's appeal to risk taking situations and she wanted her mother's beauty.
Haunting & darkly erotic tale of teen alienation (by Falconeer)
Drew Barrymore turns in the most memorable performance of her career, in this strange, beautifully filmed tale of betrayal and teenage alienation. The introverted Sylvie meets the mysterious Ivy at the posh private school they attend, and become fast friends. It seems Sylvie idolizes Ivy just a bit, for her beauty and fearless, outgoing style. And Ivy, coming from a broken home, begins to envy Sylvies life, as Sylvie lives in a gorgeous home, and has a mother and father who care deeply for her. The tale is more sad than suspenseful, and this is more of a teen drama than 'an erotic <more>
thriller. The friendship that develops between the two girls is done in a very believable way, and it is sad when things begin to go wrong, and it becomes clear that Ivy has some deep emotional problems. The plot here is not so original, but so many elements elevate 'Poison ivy' above other films of this type. The acting all around is impressive; Cheryl Ladd is beautifully fragile as the sick, bed-ridden mother, and the relationship that develops between her and her daughter's mysterious friend is touching, as the two look very similar. It is obvious that when 'Georgie' looks at 'Ivy' she is reminded of her own youth, and her own days of being wild. And this is how the connection develops between the mother and Ivy. The daughter unfortunately is unable to connect with her own mom, as the two are so different. 'Gerorgie,' like Ivy, is blond, pretty, and glamorous, while Sylvie is mousy-haired and wears glasses. This causes immediate, but subtle tension between the two girls from the outset. Tom Skeritt is perfect as the brooding, wounded husband, who feels abandoned by a wife who has given up on living. This fact makes him easy prey for Ivy as well, whose desire to become a part of this family soon escalates to a disturbing level. Sara Gilbert is likewise perfectly cast as the shy but intelligent Sylvie. So much attention is paid to small details, which is so important with films of this sort. Ivy's tattoo, which turns out to be fake, and the Egyptian eye that is shaved into Sylvie's scalp, gives these characters depth. The film possesses a strong, atmospheric tone, and Ivy's strange, childlike sexuality has an almost hypnotic quality about it. The background music as well, is lush, and darkly romantic. And many scenes are absolute eye candy, and truly erotic. Among them, the scene where Tom Skeritt's character 'takes' Ivy on the hood of his Mercedes in the forest, while the rain pours down and that haunting melody plays; classic. And the film succeeds in being erotic without being very graphic, and this is not easy to accomplish. I was lucky to see this in the theater, and was happy to find the DVD, which contains both versions of the movie, the theatrical, 'R' rated version, and a slightly more graphic unrated edition. There were some sequels to this, that were released straight to video, and are, not surprisingly, terrible exploitation trash that has nothing to do with this legitimate film. 'Poison Ivy" is an above average 'teen angst' film, and deals effectively with it's subject matter. Recommended, especially for fans of Drew Barrymore. Fans who are only familiar with her more recent films will be amazed at how great she is, and how amazing she looks, in this very special film.
Poison Ivy is appropriately titled as the lead character 'Ivy' played brilliantly by a younger,blonder and trashier looking Drew Barrymore is a conniving,deceitful bitch who moves in with her friend Sylvie Cooper Roseanne's Sara Gilbert and slowly begins to destroy the already messed up family.Embarking on a disturbing relationship with the older Tom Skerritt,who plays Mr Darryl Cooper,Ivy is free to move in on the guy,as his wife Mrs Cooper Cheryl Ladd is lying in a bed a lot of the time,and has thoughts about committing suicide,sick of her pointless life.With Mrs Cooper out <more>
of the way,Ivy seduces Mr Cooper behind her friend Sylvie's back and what happens next is chilling and disturbing as Ivy gets deeper into the life of the family and shows her true colours.
I started watching this movie without knowing anything about it. I got pleasantly surprised. I had no idea what genre this movie was, it started out as a comedy but later it changed to drama and thriller. To me this movie was totally unpredictable and fascinating. I loved the fact that you had no idea where the story would take you. Actually I think that this movie would have been even better if it hadn't ended as a thriller. It would actually have worked better as a dark comedy. I think it's wrong to rate this movie as a thriller. I don't necesarily see the murder as something <more>
calculating and evil, I actually got the impression that Drew Barrymores character actually liked her friends mother and that she, in her own naive way wanted to help her put an end to her misery. I think she took the decision to do it right there and then and that it was nothing she had planned. I think it's a bit sad that this movie had such an ordinary mainstream ending. From the car accident to the end the movie looses a lot. I often confuse Drew Barrymore with Alicia Silverstone and this movie reminded me a bit about "the crush" with silverstone but "the crush" had no potential to be more than a thriller, this movie is superior since it's more psychologically interesting and it's "not just a thriller". The ending makes this movie look dumber than it is. Good acting and worth watching.
