Storyline

In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes, and Facebook, Lola and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola's mom, Anne, "accidentally" reads her teenage daughter's racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, LOL is a fresh coming-of-age story for modern times. Written by Anonymous

What the...?
24 August 2013 | by missypatSee all my reviews

Insipid, vacuous, prejudiced piece of 'movie' material. The teenagers apparently all have trust issues and act like the cover page of People Magazine, who did who with what mostly and live only through their communication systems. Miley's character acts bipolar (although who are we to judge upon the severity of mental issues) during most of the film, if not for all of it. The obvious morality stints of teen sex and drugs is brought in a way where only the superfluous banality of it remains. That criticism is coming from a moderate consumer of said herbs and an inveterate cheater movie addict who mostly watches John Waters and Kevin Smith films...

It's a sad day for teen movies. Where are the complex intertwining motives "à la" John Hugues, or the ironic yet quite serious movie making of Amy Heckerling? The parents are a) too lenient or b) harsh Nazi like figures of pseudo authority. By pushing his kid, one of the fathers actually commits a felony.

2/10... Because although it is pure Hollywood (I appeal to the masses of tweens that want to see Justin Bieber replicas have sex in a school bathroom types), some effort of formal cinematography can be sometimes perceived, the images of the cities and urban milieu are somewhat okay. Yay DoP, sucks to be the rest of the crew.
