4.0 out of 5 stars Drew should have done more like this... 8 Dec 2010
Format:DVD
...rather than the bland rom-coms that she did after this film. Poison Ivy has a TV film feel about it and having just watched it recently for the first time in several years I feel that she could have had more credibility if she had continued on the serious side of acting, rather than frivolous rom-coms that became her staple.

Drew Barrymore never looked better than she did in this film and it's easy to see why Tom Skerritt is tempted by the teenage temptress. Sara Gilbert, who older readers may remember from Roseanne and younger readers as an occasional actress in The Big Bang Theory, plays a very good supporting role in this tight, memorable, and erotic thriller.

There is a little too much on the music playing in the background but all in all, this is a good film to kill an hour-and-a-half with, particularly as it involves Ms Barrymore at her sexy looking best in a role that she excelled in.

5.0 out of 5 stars sexy,seductive, very drew! 1 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I expected this to be another shallow film,a meaningless excuse to have endless sex scenes but it turned out to be a very deep, psychologically thriller. It's the tale of outsider, Cooper, who befriends the new wild girl in town, who thrives on the love and attention of others. She becomes infatuated with Cooper's father and will let nothing get in her way.Seeing Drew play the secuctive teen is like magic. This is not a film to be missed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poison Ivy 10 April 2005
Format:DVD
I must be missing a trick about this film because every review I read seems to sum it up as a credible and interesting movie, and yet for me it swung between sheer boredom and tired trotted out formulaic film tricks in equal amounts.
The story idea is intriguing but not that original; a beautiful young girl from the wrong side of the tracks befriends the geeky insecure rich girl from her school class. She then worms her way into the family's affections in differing ways. She sympathises and comforts the mother, a neurotic who believes she is on death's door. She seduces the father, a reforming alcoholic, even steals the affections of the family dog. Finally she generally turns nasty on her so called friend and sets her up for many a bad fall.
Where it just didn't work for me is that all the tricks used to show the development of the story line just seem so hackneyed and generally tired. They are nothing new and possess no subtlety whatsoever is they way they are presented. They are rammed down the audience's throat with a sense that if they had been done with any delicacy at all the film maker's were scared that their "idiot" audience wouldn't understand.
The performances aren't shockingly bad but they certainly aren't fantastic. Drew Barrymore is certainly good looking but can she pull off the necessary malice for this role? For me she didn't come anywhere close. Sara Gilbert is more believable as the misunderstood outsider that Barrymore befriends but even here there is something missing.
For me this is a movie you watch when you're a misunderstood teenager yourself, you watch it feeling convinced it's full of hidden messages that only you can understand and thinking that the film is speaking to you on a level that no-one else can. It isn't, it's just a worn out mechanical acting by numbers flick which soon looses it's shine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poison Ivy 8 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a classic 'Drew Barrymore' movie. The story line is about a lonely teenage girl becoming friends with 'Ivy' another teenage girl and how 'Ivy' becomes part of her family. However, there is more to 'Ivy' than meets the eye!
