Adolescence can be hazardous to your health.
What is it about young people that makes every generation of them seem like they are out of control? Foxes is a poignant and depressing look at the lives of four teenage girls in Los Angeles circa 1979. The film would seem to point the finger at poor parenting as the cause of most of the turmoil these girls face. Indeed, the parents we are introduced to leave a lot to be desired. They are either overbearing, abusive, or uninvolved with their children. Is it any wonder the girls often sleep together in the same bed like a pack of foxes. The four main characters seem to be their own family unit. One that is more reliable and supportive than the families that have spawned them.
Jodie Foster plays Jeanie who appears to be the main character. Her mother (Sally Kellerman) is a forty-ish college student who seems to shack up with lesser men. She is still obviously trying to live out a childhood that perhaps was taken from her by an early pregnancy. In one interesting scene, Jeanie’s mother lashes out at her daughter in a fit of jealousy. It appears her daughter and her friends have better bodies now, and that must be hard for a sexually active single mom to take. At one point, Jeanie’s mom moves out and Jeanie is left alone. Her father appears to be some sort of manager for a rock group who is always on the road. This is perhaps an element of the original script where the four young ladies were supposed to be a rock group. Jeanie’s friends are also troubled in one way or another. We have a drug-addicted friend who is always on the run from her abusive cop-father. Another is virginal until she hooks up with an older man (Randy Quaid) and the two somehow fall in love. Another is a manipulative sexpot who likes to get boys fighting over her. All in all, these women are bound for trouble from the very beginning of the film. And trouble becomes tragedy by the time the credits roll.
Foxes is not a bad film, but there are problems with it. The film is really minimalist in terms of story and characterization, but maybe that was what they were going for. The final draft looks like it had undergone quite a bit of re-writing. Technically, the film is too dark, and some of the post-dubbing is poorly synchronized with the characters lip movements. The “On the Radio” song from Donna Summer is played constantly. It seems out of place with some of the scenes that feature it. When it works best are times when it is stripped down to somber piano notes in the quieter scenes. Scott Baio’s character seems tacked on and useless.
If you were a teenager back then, I’m sure it will ring more true than if you’re a casual viewer. It kind of reminds me of the Smashing Pumkins song about 1979 and all the kids with their nihilistic attitudes. Foxes is not inspiring. It should serve as a warning shot to parents about keeping better track of their kids. Teenagers these days are every bit as at risk. Maybe more! 6 of 10 stars.
