Storyline

Hating Alison Ashley is a coming of age story about teenagers dealing with their self-inflicted angst, their embarrassing parents, their friends and those they would call their enemies. Erica Yurken's life sucks: her family is an embarrassment, her acting genius is unrecognized and because of her name, she is nicknamed 'Yuk'. So from the moment the perfect Alison Ashley arrives at school, Yuk knows there is going to be trouble. Yuk has always felt superior to everyone at Barringa East, but Alison is everything Yuk has ever wanted to be Written by spike

Goofs

When Barry Hollis lights his graffiti that he drew on the wall on fire, Erica comes along and her right eyebrow gets burned and one half of her face gets covered with ash. But if you look closely, Erica wasn't even close enough to the wall to get that much damage to her face. See more »

Quotes

Mum: Erc, just remember: your family's who you are
Erica Yurken: I hope not. I've got one sister who think's she's a horse, another, who's got a black belt in being a bitch, and bloddy Marley who's still mowing crop circles in the front lawn.

Luved it
13 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When i heard that this movie was coming out i couldn't of cared less but then i went with my friends and thought it was one of the best Aussie movies after the castle.

I thought Sarskia was brilliant and though people keep dissing her Delta wasn't to bad either even though i think she should stick to singing, however the person i thought was outstanding was the teacher of 9C, every line was delivered with such sarcasm that i thought was hilarious.

This movie is aimed at 12 to 14 year old's, i think thats why i enjoyed it so much as I'm 13, i could kind of get what Erica was on about, her frustration and anger about how no one appreciates her "art".

i would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a bit of a light hearted fun, (especially good for a boring Saturday afternoon!
