Storyline

Cyrano De Bergerac meets Cinderella. Over-worked, harried, and terrified of being put back in foster care, 17-year-old Katie (Lucy Hale) does her stepmother and step-siblings' bidding without complaining. Vocally gifted, Katie feels particularly upset when forced to lay down singing tracks so that her untalented stepsister, Bev Van Ravensway, can hopefully win a recording contract. Bev wants to sign with Kensington Records - whose company President, Guy Morgan, is scouting for new spectacular talent at a talent showcase for the performing arts department at a prestigious private school. Written by ABC Family

Seriously not bad
9 June 2012 | by ness-cessitySee all my reviews

I've probably given it a slightly generous rating and that's probably thanks to the music, I'm so pleased that there is finally a teen musical movie that has kids in it that can act and sing. Not the whiny voices Disney keeps trying to tell us we like but ones you might even consider buying an album of (without 3 weeks of whining from the pre-teen in your life). Admittedly they probably wouldn't win Idol off their own backs but they can sing, just have a listen to Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) in the opening.

The plot and supporting characters can seem a bit flimsy at times but to be honest, who really watches these types of films and expects them to win an Oscar?

Definitely worth 88 minutes of your life. Preferably with a tub of Ben & Jerry's and your most comfortable PJs
