Katt Shea came up with the title, 'Poison Ivy' after shooting began and instantly doubted it and thought it was silly. Only after the crew agreed with her and told her to 'go with her heart' did she stick with the title. See more »

In the unrated version, there is an additional scene (at about 30:30) after Ivy and Sylvie hitch a ride home from the tatoo parlor. Sylvie complains about her looks, and Ivy tells her she's "beautiful". They kiss, and Sylvie looks bothered. See more »
Poison Ivy is a good teenage drama movie, starring Sara Gilbert and Drew Barrymore, who both give great performances here. Barrymore plays Ivy a young and wild teen, who lives with her aunt. When she ends up moving in with her friend, Sylvie played by Gilbert, Ivy slowly and seductively works her way into the lives of her 'new' family. The movie has some weird moments, but most of the time it's good and keeps you interested in the plot and the characters.
