Storyline

Angus the fluffy cat retains its dignity even in a crazy Eastbourne family, unlike them. Eldest daughter Georgia is completely besotted with 'Stiff Dylans' band hottie Robbie, who just moved in from London and helps run an organic groceries shop with his brother Tom, whom her best friend Jas has the hots for. Peter Dyer calls Georgia his best ever kissing-course pupil, but she ignores him and later the brothers' other classmate Dave the Laugh. Robbie was considering to dump haughty Lindsay, but reconsiders given the immature brat's apparent cruelty. Thus manipulative Georgia keeps changing her mind about a grand birthday party and her father's career opportunities as engineer in New Zealand, while mother seems to flirt with hunky interior decorator Jem.

Goofs

In the scene where Jas first eats lunch without the Ace Gang and instead with Tom, Robbie has an apple on his lunch tray. From the distance, you can see him move his drink out of the way, but not his apple. When it zooms back in, the apple has switched from being on one side of his plate to the other side. Then, when you next see the apple, it has moved even farther towards the end of the tray, without giving Robbie time to move it while being un-noticed. See more »

Quotes

Wet Lindsay: [notices Georgia walk into a party dressed as a stuffed olive and starts laughing at her] And what are you supposed to be, an obese leprechaun?
Georgia Nicolson: Anyone can see I'm a stuffed olive.
Wet Lindsay: Stuffed is right!

I can honestly say it didn't compare
13 November 2008 | by aluragirl16See all my reviews

I've had an addiction to these books ever since I started reading them. They're fantastic. So when I heard they were making a movie, I was really excited.

Not only has the movie not been released in the US, and therefore I had to go through a lot of trouble to see it, but I can honestly say that the movie didn't compare at all to the books.

The acting was superficial, there were awkward moments that shouldn't have been awkward(awkward between the actors acting the scene), and everything that developed over one novel was crammed into only a couple minutes.

I can understand wanting to watch this movie for the gist of the books, but I must say it's well worth more of your time to actually read the book.
