Trivia

Kirsten Dunst's cameo, as herself, was not part of the original script. Instead, it was incorporated into the film after Dunst visited director Sofia Coppola on set. Dunst previously starred in two of Coppola's other films, The Virgin Suicides (1999) and Marie Antoinette (2006). See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 10 mins) Nicki refers to her younger sister Emily, as "Gabby". The names of all the participants in the Bling Ring were changed for the film, but Gabby Neiers is the real person the character of Emily was based upon. See more »

Not a lot of bling for your buck
26 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Only one word can describe this movie: boring. I imagine there are plenty of indie-loving, artsy types that loved it but I found it very dull. There were a lot of nonsensical scenes that had no point and didn't add to the story at all. One in particular saw the male lead dancing and smoking weed in front of a night visioned camera by himself for a good 2 minutes. Don't ask me what the purpose of that was; I just don't know. The movie was sloppily cut and jarring in it's transitions at times. Not to mention repetitive. How many times can you watch this group of kids break in to Paris Hilton's house and try on hats? The only saving grace was Emma Watson. She played her character's self-centered, shallow, vapid nature with subtle believability. Other than that, I'd say avoid this movie at all costs. The level of boredom it conjures is mind-numbing at best.
