This is not the worst movie of 2006 as I have heard it often cited, Little Man and Date Movie are much worse. But it is no Pan's Labyrinth or Children of Men either, nor did it need to be. Instead it is a flawed but reasonably entertaining film. It is predictable in the story yes, it runs out of ideas at the end(didn't like the freeze frame for example) and the script and characters in a sense are clichéd. However, the film does look good with striking locations and fashions and the photography is above adequate. The soundtrack is bright and breezy, the pace is snappy and there are some amusing situations. Plus the entire cast are likable and do give it their all, while she has been better(ie. Mean Girls and Freaky Friday) Lindsay Lohan is very charming. All in all, not that bad in my opinion. 6/10 Bethany Cox
