I think this movie is a bit misunderstood. It's a snapshot of a girl's life in the early 2000s, attending Catholic school in Sacramento. "Lady Bird" is almost legally an adult, but this movie proves she still has a lot to learn (I'm sure all of us can relate to this). "Lady Bird&qu... Read More »

Something about this movie just didn't feel believable and I wasn't all that entertained by it. It just seemed to go nowhere and I thought the editing didn't do it justice. Loose ends all over the place.

Overrated, and disappointing considering it was nominated for several Oscars. I watched it because of the nominations. A self-centered teenager with working class parents, evolved during the movie into a self-center high school graduate. While Sacramento can be a dull town, I lived there once, it deserved better than the constant condescension it received in this movie. Borrow something else.

Entertaining, relateable, real, modern...pretty good all around movie. The mother's drive away from the airport is the picture of most to every parent that has had to give their child away at one point in their life or another.

Boring!! Watch something else. I turned it off 5 minutes into the movie.

The tale of a Catholic teen-age girl living in conservative Sacramento, California (I don't know too much about it Sacramento, but I get the feeling that Sacramento and Catholic is about as conservative and stifling as you can get. She has the desire to fly away, thusly renaming herself Lady Bird. I'm wondering if she will have to struggle to adjust to the freedom and cosmopolitan atmosphere of the East Coast where she wants to fly to.

Boring , nothing of a movie . So lackluster . Potential that led nowhere .

The teenage years, full of anger and longing. some get over it, others don't.

Way overrated. If I were being charitable, I could ascribe the chopping editing and fevered rhythms as representative of a teen's hyper-kinetic psyche; but, in fact, it seemed a freshman director's fear of lingering too long and being found out.

Didn't know much about this movie but heard it during the Oscars so I thought it would be good. It was boring and I couldn't relate. Do some people really live like that. If so, I can see why the struggling class turned to Trump. If it's a reflection of America, we got major problems.

I thought it was about Ladybird Johnson (LBJ's wife) - it is NOT. Teenage drama with a girl in Catholic school dreaming of getting out of Sacramento. Found it pretty dull, tedious teenage melodrama. However, having spent a few days in Sacramento myself, I could sympathize with her desire to move on and out!

While I did really like this film, it was a little overhyped, and I don't think it was the best film of the year (that would be "Get Out"). That said, this is a sharp, funny, and poignant movie that finds something fresh to say about teen desire, angst, and frustration. The cast is note perfect and writer/director Greta Gerwig doesn't condescend or mock the characters, however ridiculous they sometimes act. Note: This film has nothing to do with Lady Bird Johnson.

Many inquiring and humorous quotes have been posted in IMDb. Many thanks to the contributors. The first quote listed in the site hits the spot on the relationship between many teens and their parents (added three lines* for full context):
Lady Bird: I wish that you liked me.*
Marion: Of course I love you.*
Lady Bird: But do you like me?*
(Conversation continued as the first quote in IMDb page)
Marion: I want you to be the very best version of yourself that you can be.
Lady Bird: What if this is the best version?
