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

The character played by Emma Watson, while seen holding a cigarette and putting it to her lips, is quite obviously not inhaling said cigarette, revealing that she isn't actually smoking. See more »

Coppola Disappoints Amidst a Creative Idea

The Bling Ring is a stunningly shot, visually entertaining film that strives to make a statement about materialism and young teens' fame obsessions. Unfortunately, Sofia Coppola fails to translate her vision into a substantiated plot that develops a story and protagonists; neither of which, are worth caring about. Aside from Emma Watson's intimidating performance, the acting is sub-par which aids in the instantaneous transition from Coppola's attempts to create a smart, creative film to a shallow, unsatisfactory film that feels quite unfinished. The idea of The Bling Ring is fresh, however you cannot help but ignore the large lack of intellectual Bling, the film once promised or Coppola might have hoped for.
