Review for Girl In Progress PG-13 Comedy/Drama 1:32
by  John Thielking
5-14-12

Girl In Progress chronicles a brief passage in the life of a teenaged girl named Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) who is often neglected by her single mother Grace (Eva Mendes) who is busy juggling bills, jobs and her two love interests (Matthew Modine, Eugenio Derbez).  After getting assignments in English class to do with coming of age experiences, Ansiedad decides to speed up the process of growing up and hatches an elaborate plan that includes dumping her best friend and losing her virginity, all on a whim. Will she wake up to reality before she blows it big time? Tune in and find out.  Three stars.

This movie ranks as little or no violence because there are two violent stories and only one on screen violent scene. These include: there is a story of domestic abuse, a girl gets doused with drinks and there is a story of an attempted suicide.

The previews include a violent preview for the too violent movie For Greater Glory, somewhat violent previews for Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Searching For A Friend For The End Of The World and nonviolent previews for Step Up Revolution, People Like Us and Lola Versus.
