horrible and annoying young actor
19 January 2012 | by rightwingisevilSee all my reviews

i just can't believe that the casting job would be THAT difficult to find a better and more likable young actor to play this her-titled movie. she actually just looked like a brat, a spoiled, heartless, feeling-less shallow materialistic teen. and i also couldn't believe in that particular school, girls were so annoyingly disgusting and so formulaic portrayed in such typical Hollywood movie. neither could i believe anything happened in this movie even it claimed to be a comedy. father lost his job, then immediately declared he's bankrupted, only this scenario i can believe, because it's typical American. when you got a job with a steady huge income, the whole family members would engage in a shopping spree day in and day out, but once the job was cut, then there's nothing left right away. it's the American consumer paradise funded on regular incomes. this movie cast two adult actors who i like a lot, but the girl who plays their daughter just like a nice soup ruined by a tiny fly. what a waste. and the comedy is still trying to have this family full of fun? it only happens in the movie.
