    A Home Movie
    Insightful coming age footage of a teen celebrity that filmed her days parting, and traveling. That includes awesome unseen cameos of pubescent up and coming future celebrities. Also unfortunately some video of late actors who are no longer with us as well.

    I think that any good film is like a wave on the ocean and this one just never seems to make it to shore. You are left with a similar feeling of watching home movies in your uncles basement.

    Was it fun? Yes! Was there lots of weird pointless footage mixed with cool stuff? Yes! And that's fun too! But, it can feel empty and pointless at the end vs. If it had an editor (which this feels it really still needed despite being edited!).

    Fascinating Home Video-ish Doc
    This gives you an inside look into Solei Moon Fry (aka. Punky Brewster) and her young life as a famous actress, hanging out in Hollywood with her famous friends. It's not all fun and games though. Addiction, mental health issues, and trauma are rampant in this otherwise privileged group who are in many ways thrust into a fast and dangerous adult world much too young. The perils of fame meets the bright side of creativity for an unfiltered documentary.

    Soleil and No One Else
    If they named and described this documentary what it really is, "the life of Soleil Moon Frye", no one would watch it. So instead they dupe you with the description "young Hollywood stars growing up in the 1990s". I kept watching it hoping they'd show more 90's child stars, but the more I watched the more it became only about Soleil. Although it was somewhat interesting, it was more of a disappointment than anything as I expected to hear about the other child stars and what happened to them. They only show a bunch of 5 second clips of the others from her old recordings.
