Did You Know?


Bella Thorne and Zendaya were in a Live Action Disney Channel Series called Shake It Up (2010) at that time when they made Frenemies (2012). See more »


As Savannah skateboards down the sidewalk toward Jake and Murray (the dog), she loses control and flips over a bush out of sight. Her skateboard remains behind on the middle of the sidewalk about midway on a driveway where the two intersect. The next shot is a point of view from Jake looking up the sidewalk, but no skateboard can be seen anywhere near the driveway and sidewalk intersection. The following scene shows Savannah returning to the sidewalk, but now the skateboard is on the sidewalk near the right edge of the driveway rather than at the original midway point. See more »


[Savannah needs to confide in her butler]
Savannah: Can I tell you something? I'm not Emma. I'm Savannah.
Pemberly: [gasps] I'm shocked.
Savannah: You won't tell anyone?
Pemberly: [chuckles] Please, you have no idea what kind of secrets I keep around here. That's why my Christmas bonus is so high.

not good
6 October 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Avalon Greene (Bella Thorne) and Halley Brandon (Zendaya) used to be BFFs. Now, they're frenemies. Same goes for their various fellow teens. Superficial Julianne (Stefanie Scott) uses science nerd Jake Logan (Nick Robinson) to partner up with for their science project. His dog Murray is too smart for her tricks. Skateboarding Savannah (Mary Mouser) seems to like both Jake and Murray. Then there is Savannah and her rich doppelganger Emma.

I don't like Jake's temporary turn against Murray. I don't like either Avalon or Halley. By the time we get to Savannah/Emma, I stopped caring. The cast is filled with interesting up and comers. It's fun to see the kid actors trying to do some acting. Splitting the movie up into three sections does not help with the flow. Overall, it's not good.
