The girls are fun but it's a little too stupid
2 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Devon (Alona Tal) and Gabby (Daniella Monet) are in love with boy band 5 Leo Rise. Lincoln has known Devon forever, but she can't take his constant attention. To get the band to play at the school dance, the girls have gathered a ton of juice labels for a contest. They accidentally burn all the labels and everybody at school starts picking on them. They try to talk to the band but it turns out that they're a bunch of jerks. So they come up with a plan to kidnap the band with the help of the master prankster Lincoln and Pete.

I love Alona Tal. Daniella Monet sometimes comes off as whiny. In this, the two girls make a great best friend duo. They're the only good thing in this movie. The band's acting abilities are limited. The movie is pretty weak. It oscillates between silly and stupid. Silly is fine. Stupid is not. Overall, the movie has some charms but that's mostly due to the girls.
