I really could relate to this little gem, starring Adam Arkin, Marisa Tomei, Kevin Corrigan, Carl Reiner and a heart stealer named Natasha Lyonne. Vivian (Lyonne) is a fifteen year old girl trying to cope with the endless cycle of C**P that swirls around her. Her dad (Arkin) has no job and seems to be an old deadbeat who should have had a good career to retire from. He’s now 65 years old and every three months or so, uproots his three kids and moves them out of their current slum to go live in another slum, striving mind you to keep them within the Beverly Hills city limits where the “good schools” are. Meanwhile, Vivian’s brother Ben is seems to be following in Pop’s footsteps. And she has her own emotional baggage, that horrible time that Grandma promised would be wonderful: puberty. Vivian is now learning what Grandma calls the most wonderful time of your life isn’t if the truth be told. Overnight, Vivian has gone from pancake flat to a C cup, drawing unwanted stares from every male in sight and snide comments from her disgusting older brother. When her cousin Rita (Marisa Tomei) gets into trouble with drugs and Rita’s dad (Reiner) offers to pay Arkin and family to look after her, the family is able to afford a more shall we say “posh” apartment complex. Vivian meets Eliot (Corrigan) a pot dealer who at first seems to be just another sex-crazed male preying on virgins with well developed breasts but who later proves to be a likeable, almost sweet would be boyfriend to Vivian. Some may think Vivian to be a crass, grumpy pouter, but I remember the bad old days and I was exactly like her. When have you ever seen an adolescent in a splendid mood with all that bloating and those raging hormones??? And one scene where the dad is leaving for a night out and charging Vivian with taking care of Rita and the boys while he’a away is really sweet. The little Eskimo kiss shows you how much Viv loves her Pop even though he’s majorly messing up on his kids.
There are some hilarious scenes in which Viv is introduced to the wonderful world of vibrators, and one realizes that although puberty is a sucky, awkward, rotton time, the discovery of sexuality is in contrast a wonderfully precious and sometimes downright hilarious one. The movie doesn’t really have a focused plot, but it doesn’t really need one. It’s mainly about Vivian and her amazing ability to cope with her abnormal family and her impending unavoidable womanhood, and as a character, she’s a success.
