spoiled teen drama queen
22 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i was wondering if this was based on the life of Linday Lohan,, it was good to see Valerie Bertinelli in a movie again,, i remember watching her on the old TV show One Day At A Time.. a Hollywood starlet teen queen parties up the life of being a star,, she hits the red carpet and falls flat on her face,, and into re hab she goes,, she gets whisked away to some small town around Fort Wayne , Indiana by her mother and her manager,, where she stays with her Aunt Trudy.. she has to go to high school, wear cheesy teen girl clothes,, can't drink alcohol, and is basically shut off from her starlet Hollywood lifestyle,, sorta like a fish out of water,, i really liked Valerie Bertinelli's performance in this ,movie,, it was good to see that she still can act after all of these years,, this is a pretty decent movie.
