AllMusic Review by

Appropriately enough for a film that spans two decades in the life of a woman who becomes a mother at 15, the soundtrack to Penny Marshall's Riding in Cars With Boys presents pop highlights from the '60s through the '80s, including the Everly Brothers' "All I Have to Do Is Dream," the Five Stairsteps' "O-o-h Child," and Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." The Chiffons' "One Fine Day," Skeeter Davis' "End of the World," and Big Brother & the Holding Company's "Piece of My Heart" are some of the other highlights from this entertaining but somewhat predictable collection.
