Teen queen Lizzie McGuire grows up a bit and hits the big screen in this comedy drama, based on the popular Disney Network series. Lizzie McGuire and her best friends Kate, Gordo, and Ethan have just graduated from middle school, and to celebrate, they're taking part in a class trip to Rome, Italy. Eager to celebrate their new maturity as high school students, Lizzie and her pals hope to live it up in one of Europe's most fabled cities, but fate has something more spectacular in store for Lizzie. Lizzie discovers that she bears a striking resemblance to Isabella, an Italian teen-pop idol famous for her duets with heart-throb Paolo -- so much so that when Paolo and Isabella have a falling out, he asks Lizzie to take Isabella's place for an upcoming concert. Lizzie, however, isn't sure she feels comfortable stepping into the spotlight, and is even less sure about the way she feels about Paolo, who makes no secret of his infatuation with her. Things don't get any simpler for Lizzie when ... Written by Rachel Barlow

When Paolo and Lizzie go to Franca's place to choose a dress, Lizzie tries on a dress that has a magazine cover for a hat. The magazine is the edition that Gordo has just seen the two girls reading with Lizzie on the cover. But when he shows Lizzie the magazine when she gets back to the hotel, she looks astounded that she is on the front cover of a magazine, but wouldn't she have already seen it (when she was at Franca's) before Gordo shows it to her?

cheesy mcguire
5 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

This film plays well as a teenybopper movie, especially for the fans of the TV series. But I'm afraid its reach can't go far beyond than that. It has not every bit as much charm as the cute Italian girls playing cameo roles, and its plot and the twist are truly ridiculous (although not exactly in an awfully bad way).

Perhaps one of the few things I liked here is Hilary Duff in her first title role on the big screen. She just lights up the screen on every scene she's in and I do like her Italian accent.

But that's just about it. It has a premise dipped in extra-sugary syrup, and the film in general was very much like the bag of Cheetos I was munching through the duration of the movie: dangerously cheesy.
