An appealing cast of talented performers and some mild good intentions cannot save this uneven and sour comedy (originally released with the title “Strike!”) about a girls’ boarding school that is threatened with co-education.

It is 1963 and three girls (Kirsten Dunst, Gaby Hoffman, and Heather Matazarro) are students at tony Miss Godard’s. They don’t like the school and constantly subvert its rules, but when it appears that the school is about to merge with a boys’ school, they suddenly turn into loyal little proto-feminists. A few nice moments are spoiled by dreadful dialogue, inconsistent characters, and every possible girl-school cliche from bulimia to inept sexual encounters.
