A modern teen film that bit off more than it could chew.
A few funny moments but overall left pretty disappointed at the tokenistic characters and rushed plots.

Cute. Typical teen angst movie. Inspiringending. Some good jokes thrown in. Watch it if you’re an Amy Poehler fan, she made the movie.

Every teenager should watch this!!
A more children friendly version of a very promising woman. We need to stand together, and support each other!! 🔥💥
Unfortunately we still live in a mans world, and it is up to us, strong men and woman to put an end to it. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

I think this was the perfect 2021 chick flick with very very important topics. I think it’s important to think about this being a teen movie and for that I think this was a great way to bring out the important messages why still making it a fun and girly teen movie 💖 We unfortunately all had a Mitchell in our class in school and how idiotic group of friends. And if you don’t believe you had a Mitchell then you’re probably a male 🤷🏽♀️ The ranked list, the dress code, the slut shaming and so on is all everyday life for girls in school and that sucks.

Hvis man overall ser på hele filmen, så er den ret flad i det med tomt indhold. Men hvis man kigger lidt dybere, viser den en kamp der var engang og stadig er i dag. Den viser at vi aldrig skal stoppe med at sige fra, og kæmpe og gøre det vi har lyst til, og vi skal respektere hinandens grænser.
Den viser at man skal stå op for sig selv, holde hovedet højt og være stolt af hvem man er, og ikke bukke under.
Alt i alt, en god film - men værdierne i den variere fra person til person, og man kan kun håbe at de rigtige bliver taget med videre.

I was excited for this to come out because it looked like I’d love it. It is a fairly easy watch and cheesy hype up. There were some moments I really loved but also some moments were really painful to watch. Especially 3/4 way through; I considered stopping it (which I pretty much never ever do). I did really love Alycia Pascual-Peña; she was good throughout.
One of the most obvious things and my least favourite: This film really felt like it was trying to throw in every stereotypical current cultural important stand and calling out that it could. Not a bad thing to make sure these issues are raised but it literally felt like it was trying to tick off a check list, tokenistic, rather than actually naturally speaking out or doing anything with it.. or anything new with it. Maybe tried to hit too many. Either way, didn't feel genuine.
I love the ‘zine, love the design, love referencing her mum’s era of taking a stand, and doing the same against the injustices and unaccountability at school; including the degrading list sent out. Could have done a lot with this and had moments it worked.
But just really just didn’t manage to land. Which is a total shame.
The boyfriend relationship felt weirdly quick and out of the blue, even though set up.. just didn’t feel natural. A lot didn’t feel natural; even her getting drunk felt weirdly out of the blue, even though it could have made sense. And also the two girls kissing in the live music scene, also felt totally random. Probably even more I’m not naming. Odd.
Loved the first scene with the song ‘No Going Back - Yuno’ - I felt right at home with that being a song favourite for the last few years! Felt very promising for the film ahead.
One touch I did really love was the dream at the beginning where she was screaming and nothing coming out; then coming back to that at the end and seeing the scream released and heard. That was a very nice symbolism there.
There are also some ways she acts in protest as Moxie which aren’t great and I think shouldn't have been endorsed; they slightly touched on it I think but not enough, and then the last paint job and smashing of headteacher’s trophy.. didn’t feel it portrayed a good way to protest. I’m also sidenote surprised people actually walked out on that last one. Real life don't think they would have, or why the teacher suddenly supported it when so previously ignorant, and what she said about the rape wasn't even enough or well said for what it was.
And the end, I was hoping the whole ‘I am Moxie’ was going to be more of a ‘yes I started this thing but it was never me, it was always all of us. That's why I never spoke out. Moxie is all of you, no matter who sparked the flame..’ Rather the ‘I am Spartacus’ moment that it was.
Really struggled to put a number on this one. Really struggled. So much of it was so poor but some of it was actually good. So take that with a pinch of salt 🧂
I thought it would be cheesy and dumb but it was kinda empowering for a teen movie
Loved this movie!! It moved me to take a stand at my school against the sexism it has.
I appreciate a good girl power movie, but this one felt lacking.
