If you really wanna see Angelina Jolie (at 24 years old) chewing up the scenery as only Angelina Jolie could possibly chew up the scenery - Then be sure to check out her atrocious, over-the-top performance here as the looney-tune "Lisa".

Sporting a horribly ratty, blond, fright wig - Jolie literally bulldozes her self-centred way through every single scene in this picture just like the no-talent actress-from-hell that I'm convinced she really is.

Yeah. It's like I've said before about Jolie - Had her father not been veteran, Hollywood actor, Jon Voight, then you can be sure that this bungling babe (with the puffy lips) would have never, ever been fast-tracked into mega-stardom as she inevitably was. No way, Jose.

And, speaking about actress, Winona Ryder - At 30 years old - There was no way on Earth that she could ever convince me that she was the 18 year old, Susanna character who she was attempting to portray in the story. Not a chance.

All-in-all - This totally irksome, cliched and heavy-handed Chick Flick from 1999 made my skin absolutely crawl with revulsion like you wouldn't believe. Yep. It really did.

Maybe because I can relate to being around "unpredictable" females, I was thoroughly impressed with Angelina's performance.

An engaging story about Susanna, a confused young woman's year in a swank mental institution in 1967-68. It ends up being rather trite and predictable, featuring a series of well-packaged life lessons and episodes of self-discovery.

The plot revolves around the main character's complicated relationship with Lisa, a fascinating and alluring character who injects life into the dull surroundings of the home, but frequently forays into frightening mania. Susanna must figure out her attraction to Lisa before she can get well herself.

The use of voice-over at the beginning and end is wholly unnecessary, serving merely to tell us what we should be feeling. Performances are good and tons of recognizable faces appear in minor and major roles including Whoopie Goldberg, Brittany Murphy, Jared Leto and Clea DuVall.

[What would you say to her?] I don't know. That I was sorry. That I'll never know what it was like to be her. But I know what it's like to want to die. HOw it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside... to try to kill the thing on the inside
