Storyline

Elle wants to be a singer/songwriter, but her dreams are cut short by the sudden death of her parents. She moves in with her adoptive uncle, who runs a small independent record label whose biggest act, Sensation, is also Elle's biggest pain. The pop music environment at the label, very different than the country roots she is used to, adds to Elle's feelings of loss and frustration, and her misplaced guilt, which is caused by the fact that her parents had been en route to her performance at the time of her death. But when she meets Ty Parker, a famous pop singer with a passion for "real" music, her repressed ambition is released through a revitalized interest in singing and songwriting. Written by Anonymous

This was the worst movie I've ever seen.
4 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This story has been overdone to death, but what's worse, this version did it BADLY. Sure, it did switch up some things here and there, but, BADLY. It had horrible acting, awkward screenplay (Even the camera angles were awkward), an absolutely cringe-worthy script, and weak, flat characters. Okay, not all the actors were as bad as the lead, 'Cinderella'. Some were minimally better; then again, some were worse. It was the dullest, most eye-roll-inducing, face-palm worthy, predictable, cheesy, stereotypical movie ever. It wasn't even funny-bad, it was just stupid-bad. Side note: I'm not sure if the British accents that some of these American 'actors' put on are meant to sound fake, but fake they sound; and extremely so.

If I seem overly harsh in my choice of words to describe this movie, I'm sorry. It's coming from a frustration at myself for watching the entire ridiculous thing all the way through. Huge waste of time, that. -_-
