Storyline

When the teenager Mary Elizabeth Steppe, a.k.a. Lola, moves with her mother and two younger twin sisters from New York to the suburb of Dellwood, New Jersey, she has the feeling that her cultural and entertaining world ended. While in school, the displaced Lola becomes close friend of the unpopular Ella, who is also a great fan of the her favorite rock band Sidarthur. However, the most popular girl in the school, Carla Santini, disputes the lead role in an adaptation of Pygmalion with Lola and also the leadership of their mates. When the last concert of Sidarthur is sold-out, Lola plans with Ella to travel to New York and buy the tickets from scalpers. However, the girls get into trouble while helping the lead singer and Lola's idol Stu Wolf, changing their lives forever. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Confessions should never be this dull.
22 March 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Yawn, yawn and yawn once again. Lindsay Lohan stars in a bleached-out, mega-bland, by the numbers Disney outing and thoroughly wastes her talent in a lead role that could have been filled by . . . . a Barbie doll, for all the realism and emotion needed.

The story concerns a young girl (Lohan) with an over-active imagination who decides to "exaggerate" details of her life to make herself seem more interesting after moving from New York to New Jersey. It's fairly obvious that her lies will come back to bite her on the backside and that lessons will be learned. It's also fairly obvious how her new best friend will react to any revelations. Oh, and it's fairly obvious when the girls' favourite band breaks up and are having one last concert and then exclusive party exactly how things will pan out during THAT particular evening. As I said at the start of this review. YAWN!

The cast are completely wasted in this fairytale that I can't imagine appealing to anyone except the most undemanding viewer. Lohan is always watchable but her character has no real depth or even a decent arch to work through. All of her emotions are exhibited through annoyingly literal musical cues (HAPPY songs mean that she is HAPPY and vice versa) Her friend (played by Alison Pill) comes from the Disney stable of rent-a-kids. The "arch-enemy" gets the better moments and is well played by Megan Fox, who really keeps her nails well-filed and ready to scratch. As for the adults here, great names like Carol Kane and Glenne Headly are given a few decent moments but then cast aside for the dream-chasing teens. Which may well be as things should be but doesn't stop the viewer regretting not being able to see more of those great performers.

There isn't really even enough here to keep kids amused although the 7-14(ish) young female market may think this is a fantastic film and that's the only demographic I can see being won over by this film. It offends nobody but also barely entertains anyone. Watchable, but only just.

See this if you like: The Prince & Me, Lindsay Lohan, Uptown Girls.
