Trivia

Lisa Azuelos both wrote and directed the first incarnation, LOL (Laughing Out Loud) ® (2008), the French film starring Sophie Marceau, after realizing that movies based on teen life in her home country of France were almost entirely missing. She would often see her daughter go to the theatre to watch either an American teen movie or a horror film. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the film, Lola says her nickname is Lol and that everyone calls her that, but throughout the course of the film, nobody calls her Lol - only Lola. See more »

Quotes

Lola: It's so good to love someone so much that it hurts. I don't know how people survive this. Honestly, I don't.

Waste of Film Reels
19 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A monotonous, dreadful film that follows the gimmicks of social networking and text messaging. I wouldn't classify this as a movie; it falls along the lines of high school trauma and the depressing pokes of a Facebook page. The acting was sub-par and the love story was the equivalent of rusty nails while it focuses on the redundant internet slang we constantly see today. The whole feeling of the film was basically like looking at a Facebook page. Very dull and asinine with the sense of delusional romance forever reminding us how little hope remains for todays youth. If this is what you call quality entertainment then I fear for the sanctity of our Media. Major waste of filming resources and should be shot into the sun for the sake of humanity.
