A real sleeper!

August 21, 2002 | Rating: 4/5

Spunk and sass are the engines driving this comedy celebrating the nurturance of female independence.

March 15, 2002 | Full Review…

[S]mart and fun. It depicts its female characters as clever and creative, intelligent and high-spirited... as well as insecure and uncertain. ... [T]he girls ... are fully human, which unfortunately is not something we get to see often onscreen.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Any film as energetically performed, entertaining, and rousing... clearly has the potential to cross the demographic barriers--that is, if given the chance.

Audience Reviews for Strike!


This one manages to deliver much more than you'd expect. It's not perfect and perhaps doesn't explore the gender war as much as it could have, but the story is heart-warming, the characters are likeable, and overall it's an enjoyable experience.

An exciting young cast and a sense of nostalgia fuel this invigorating film. In a private girls' school, four protagonists form a club to be true to themselves and their school, which is in dire financial straits. Fun, funny, dramatic, and beautiful realised by a stellar cast.

Lame and pointless.
