Jacquie and Sara were best friends forever. They shared everything, including the same birthday, which they always celebrated together. This year, however, after a huge falling out the two teens wind up competing against each other to see who can have the better and more extravagant sweet 16 birthday party.Written by
I caught this on TV tonight, regrettably. I can't name a single good thing about it. So let's point out the negatives: poor direction, rubbish acting and really (i mean REALLY!) 2D characters. I wasn't impressed by that Lindsay Lohan flick Mean Girls, but that was fantastic in comparison. The story centres around the most awesome hero ev-err(!), Miss Philanthropist Blonde who's a vegan environmentalist, and who doesn't care about fashion, etc. Basically a typical delusion of the less socially successful. And everyone sees she's better than her fashion-mad rival, Miss Dumb Blonde. But when her best friend joins her school, Miss Philanthropist is appalled to see her friend (from a racial minority, of course!) is impressed by Miss Dumb. What's more she can see Miss Dumb is using her friend! O M G (as Miss Dumb would somewhat annoyingly say). The film is ridiculously lazy: everything is 100% PC, as well as regurgitated, bizarrely, from similar terrible films. But none so bad as this, and the only excuse for watching it is if you want to delude yourself. I hate these films myself but if you're considering watching this, go watch Mean Girls instead. If you have taste, avoid all films aimed at WASP teenage girls. Thank you and goodnight.
