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

Erc, just remember: your family's who you are
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.

Well I heard a lot about this film, "Delta was wooden" and "Saskia was annoying" but after watching the film, I was pleasantly surprised.
Not a classic teen film by any means, but a really enjoyable way to spend your time. It was a refreshing change from the usual teen fare, and it was to nice to see actors who weren't the usual tanned bimbos playing the lead in a film. Giving unknown actors a chance in a low-budget flick that steered away from most of the clichés of the Hollywood teen film.
Saskia Burmeister was nothing short of charming in her role as Erica Yurken. Very talented and lit up the screen with her witty acting of the over-dramatic, kooky teen. Delta was really underrated as the titular character giving an understated performance as the so-called 'perfect' Alison Ashley of Erica's mind. Alex Cappelli was also good as the resident bad boy. It was good to see him in a bigger role as I have only seen him previously as a recurring character in 'Neighbours.' The screen is very nearly stolen by the teachers who are absolutely hilarious.
In conclusion, HAA was a very funny teen flick and should be given a chance. So the next time you are at your local DVD store and you feel like renting out the next Hollywood teen comedy, do yourself a favour - rent this instead!
