Instant Star--a perfect ten
12 August 2005 | by (Alabama,United States) – See all my reviews

I found Instant Star's main character, Jude, to be positively likable. She's just like every other teenage girl (and I would know, as I am one), only she's dealing with sudden fame. Yet Jude, somehow, manages to stay down to earth and that, to me, makes her all the more endearing. The other characters are wonderful, as well. All are fun to watch; all add to the story and tie it together neatly. From the beginning, I knew I was hooked. Jude's guy problems are just like every other girl's, and same goes for her home life. It was nice to see that portrayed on television. I, for one,think that Instant Star is a perfect ten.
