The colors of the lockers in the high school in the movie are the normal everyday locker colors at (King City Secondary School, Ontario Canada) one of the 2 high schools the "high-school" scenes were filmed. The second school where the movie was shot had to have the lockers painted to match. (These same King City S.S. Lockers can be seen in movie To Die For) See more »

I myself am a teenager and took my 10 year old sister to see this movie. I won't say much as to not ruin the movie for those who have not seen it but i will give my opinion on the mood of the film and such.
If you want to see this, don't expect a deep and meaningful (or realistic) outlook on highschool life because it is your everyday teen/highschool comedy with the over-used storyline of new girl vs popular girl then new girl gets the guy and brings popular girl down.
On a better note, Lohan's character, "Lola" was an entertaining one and i enjoyed watching her over-exaggerated perspective of things. I must admit that the set up of Lola's room and the way their family lived and the clothes Lola wore were inspiring. I don't know if this is going to be the case for everyone (haha) but i know that point of the movie made it all worthwhile for me.
I'd recommend taking a younger sister/cousin/friend between about 6-12. Remember, sometimes we need a silly movie!
