Lisa Azuelos both wrote and directed the first incarnation, LOL (Laughing Out Loud) ® (2008), the French film starring Sophie Marceau, after realizing that movies based on teen life in her home country of France were almost entirely missing.

It's so good to love someone so much that it hurts. I don't know how people survive this. Honestly, I don't.

Okay first things first, you should know that this movie is a remake of a crappy French movie of the same name. If that doesn't deter you from watching, then maybe knowing that Miley Cyrus is starring as the lead role does.
I never had high hopes for this movie especially since Lionsgate completely shunned the marketing team and had no effort in making sure that this movie gets some much needed publicity. But aside from that, this movie isn't really targeted for people like me. It seems to focus on its teen demographic, hell the title says it all...LOL.
Now I'm not hating on Miley Cyrus or anything but God that girl really brought down the movie. I thought that she could maybe prove that she can act and switch away from that Hannah Montana crap, but no, she cannot. And having Demi Moore didn't help either. It's like the cast had every intention to make a god-awful movie that only teenage girls would barely like.
Overall, the movie was your average run of the mill, teenage love affair crap. If you're a guy then stay the hell away from this movie, but if you're a girl then...no, you should also stay away from this movie.
