Teen Dream Come True
30 April 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

A few songs from star Aaron Carter are an added bit of pleasure to this pleasant film about a singing bubble gum Popstar who is brought down to earth a bit. He finds that there just might be life after his vogue has passed and he'll need a few skills along the way.

Tracy Scoggins is Carter's mother who has decided that home schooling and the road tutor he has isn't doing it for him, he's flunking everything. So his career is put on hold and he has to go to high school with the rest of his peers including the teenage girls who are just gaga over him.

One of them is shy, but academically brilliant Alana Austin and she's one of those fans. When he comes to her as needing a tutor it's a teen dream come true.

And as life has imitated art Aaron Carter has certainly had his fifteen minutes of fame as bubble gum idols come and go. A couple of them from previous generations are in the film as well. David Cassidy plays Aaron's manager who is thinking that him going back to school is great publicity as the young man is a role model of sorts. Leif Garrett plays the school janitor who offers advice something along the lines of a Chinese philosopher. Pretty good advice too.

Popstar is a nice bit of entertainment, easy to take and nice songs in the score.
