A great popcorn movie
3 January 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a young Hollywood star going to a small town to live, in order to fight her alcohol addiction.

The title "True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet" sounds already cheesy, and it is just that. Morgan Carter is cynical about everything in the small town, looking down on everything and everyone. She makes unreasonable demands, is spoiled and takes everything for granted. Yet, she is strangely adorable, keeping me interested throughout the movie. Her narrated thoughts inside her head are so funny! And - what a coincidence - she does look like Lindsay Lohan! "True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet" has all the elements of a fun popcorn movie. It is fun to watch, and is a cut above many other straight to TV movies.
