This film is about a teenage girl who is very upset about her brother's death in a car crash. Terri has a love of singing and making up her own songs. Her brother (before his death) secretly submits a DVD of her singing to a musical summer camp down in L.A. Her father doesn't want her to go, but secretly her mom lets her go and everything goes fine, except she has stage fright. She gets through her stage fright with the help of her new friend Jay. At the end of the contest everyone at the musical school have to perform something. And if they win, they win a scholarship along with it. Her dad finds out, comes down to L.A. and threatens to take her home! Will he let her stay? and will she win the contest? Viewers are on the edges of their seats to find out what happens...

Which voice??
5 April 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

First of all, I won't explain the whole movie, because it's just another teen drama we all have seen before. That doesn't mean it isn't good, but it is certainly not an original one. But what bothered me the most was that they used Hillary Duff for this part. She doesn't have a good enough voice to a. carry this movie (also her acting) and b. get into a music school, you need talent for that and sorry, I don't hear it!! She's good enough for the MTV-generation, but that's all. In Holland they now show "Lizzy McGuire". Wasn't it obvious then that she's not a great actor. But then again, she's sweet, parents love her, teens love her and for them this will be a good enough movie. But have you seen movies like this before and your no fan of Duff, skip this one!! Even actors as John Corbett and Jason Ritter can't save this movie. Where are the good teen movies, like in the 80's, Breakfast Club, Some kind of Wonderful, Pretty in Pink, but also the spicier once, Less then Zero, Christiane F., but then again, they are not for teens alone and RYV is, they don't have foul language, sex and alcohol and drug-use, with other words boring, but for all ages, which you can't say for the better 'youthproblem-movies' ala Pups.
