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

Not too bad a film for kids
22 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw Hating Alison Ashley twice in cinemas, the first time because my sister loves Delta Goodrem, the second because I actually really liked it.

Personally, I thought Delta's acting was a bit wooden, and the whole cast looked several years over fourteen, however Saskia Burmeister brought the role of Erika Yurken to life.

The book on which the film is based is set while the characters are in grade six, so the film tackles the situation a little differently, turning the class bully, Barry Hollis (played EXCELLENTLY by Alex Cappelli) into a bit of a love interest, however the rest of the story stays pretty true to the book, adding in a bit of slapstick humour here and there.

Overall, the film is definitely worth seeing, even if you're not a Delta fan (trust me, I really can't stand her, but I still really enjoyed this movie).
