Overview

Three rich, pretty people befriend their poor, mousy classmate and live to regret it in this teen-centric thriller. Alicia Mia Kirshner, Hadley Meredith Monroe, Julianne Rachel True, and Sydney Dominique Swain are four students enrolled in the same sociology class at Colby University, an exclusive and respected college in the Carolinas. Alicia is a local girl born into modest circumstances who struggles to make ends meet and rarely gets a second look from the male students on campus, while Hadley, Julianne, and Sydney are close friends who all come from wealthy families and seem more concerned with partying than their studies. Alicia and Hadley are paired up to work on their semester project for the class, which is to be centered around the theme "Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way." As part of the project, Hadley decides to befriend Alicia, and brings her into her social circle. At first, Alicia seems more than grateful for the attention of her new friends, and blooms under the influence of Hadley, Julianne, and Sydney. But it isn't long before Alicia's personality begins to shift; she develops a powerful appetite for drugs and alcohol, and soon begins taking advantage of her new friendships. Things come to a head when Alicia seduces Sydney's boyfriend, Josh Oliver Hudson, and soon Alicia ends up in the hospital after OD'ing on drugs. Artie Bonner Taye Diggs, a local sheriff, begins looking into Alicia's case, convinced that her near-fatal accident with drugs was no accident at all.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
This catty, tawdry, generally well-acted B-movie would be nothing but fun if it weren't for two things: the credibility-impaired casting of too-young, too-pretty Taye Diggs as a dogged sheriff, and the fussy chronology necessitated by telling the story from his point of view. As lawman Artie Bonner, Diggs furrows his brow and scowls introspectively, but he can't seem to show the audience what's happening in his character's head. (Nor does screenwriter Victoria Strouse do much to explain why a guy so wet behind the ears would be trusted with an attempted-murder investigation.) Luckily, his screen time is minimized by the frequent flashbacks to the deliciously dishy crime itself. The four female leads have fun stabbing backs, swapping men, snorting drugs, and engaging in the odd bit of girl-on-girl action. Rachel True, so appealing whenever Hollywood deigns to offer her a role, is particularly witchy, as befits an alumna of The Craft. Most of the plot, however, centers on Meredith Monroe's poor little rich girl and her wrong-side-of-the-tracks nemesis, played with verve and ambiguity by Mia Kirshner. If it were told in a more straightforward manner, like a gothic soap opera rather than a police procedural, New Best Friend might have become a bad-girl classic. As is, it's merely adequate.

    This was a great movie!

    It was really good because it dealt with the severity of drugs and how popular kids don't have the perfect life as a lot of people think (ex. if they were molested or didn't get enough attention growing up) I loved it and I liked that 'Andy' from Dawson's Creek could play a serious role( she was really good in it!)
