Don't bother watching this film. It is trite and full of cliches. I was very disappointed in it!
I can't imagine actually paying to go and see it in a cinema! The OPL has 23 copies of this film - what a waste of taxpayers' money.

We really liked this film. Slice of coming of age life. We liked that the story took place in Sacramento. Loved that a talented woman wrote and directed it. Liked the actors. The take away message is to appreciate what we have, in this case in hindsight.

Lorie Metcalf is terrific in this. She's an underrated actress. The cover of the DVD is very misleading until you see the movie and then you get it. I like movies with strong women characters and this flick has that. It will bring back memories.

I loved this movie. It captures that moment of life when you want to get out of your boring hometown, away from your overly critical parents, and start having the life of your choice. Lady Bird chooses a name, decides she's going to New York City for college, and chooses to tell people she lives in the biggest, most beautiful house in town, which is so not true. There are a lot of laughs in this movie, but there's sadness, pain, and growth as well.

Even though I'm a Male this film really took me back to my days in high school where I feeling that I didn't really fit in anywhere, I was searching for myself, searching where I fit, having a hard time with relationships, not really knowing who I was as a person. I did have a very difficult relationship with my mother so I do understand how that can be not just with my mother but with everybody in my life it seemed relationships were difficult for me and didn't know how to handle that it felt incredibly lonely at times. With this film it really helped me deal with that in a way it was a good feeling to reflect and heal about certain things. Awesome film I enjoyed it very much.

VERY GOOD 2018 coming of age (high school) movie set in 2002. I was a bit surprised that I would get engaged in it due to my, um, older age, but I did. I particularly enjoyed new for me Laurie Metcalf's performance as the mom and will be checking out more of her performances. The other performers were fine, too - as was the rest of the film production.

Despite the poor ratings, I gave it a go and was pleasantly surprised. It's a good depiction of the difficult pull and push that often develops in a mother/daughter relationship. It's perhaps best appreciated by women who have lived through it and come to understand it when looking in the rear view mirror. The acting was excellent .

On paper, it seems to have potential: a young girl's coming of age, search for love and feelings from family, friends and lovers.
What we get is aimless, pointless, disjointed storytelling with dramatically null characters.
The only one remotely interesting is the serene, self-deprecating father.

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?
