Overview

Go Ask Alice

"Alice" was the pseudonymous name of the teenaged author who wrote the book upon which this above-average TV movie was based. Jamie Smith-Jackson portrays a shy, slightly overweight high schooler who is so anxious for acceptance that she falls in with the drug crowd. In a methodical, almost casual matter, we see how Alice descends into a nether world of pushers, pimps and prostitution. Perhaps to make the point that this could be the story of any impressionable youth, few of the characters are identified by name: Julie Adams plays "The Mother," William Shatner "The Professor," Andy Griffith "The Priest," and so on. Filmed in a cinema-verite fashion, Go Ask Alice makes excellent use of relatively unfamiliar Los Angeles locations.

It was our intro to her,but we all thought the book was real then.I still recommend it,but as an unintentionally funny book movie.william shatner was hard up for work then,but his "does he care'comment made him essential.for a gripping,yet false story,read the book.

Compared to the book, this movie was a masacre!!! The movie botched up imprtant and factual things that were pertinent elements of the book and the real life of Alice. I have read the book about 10 plus times and I have never actually been able to visualize Alice and not even this movie made me think that any of the characters from the book matched the people who played them in the movie. Seriously if you want a story and a really good one, READ THE BOOK....
