Quiet teenager Marc Hall arrives as a new student at Indian Hills High School in Agoura Hills, California. He is befriended by fame-obsessed Rebecca Ahn. While at a party at Rebecca's house, the pair check unlocked vehicles on the street, taking valuables such as cash and credit cards. When Marc mentions that one of his wealthy acquaintances is out of town, Rebecca persuades him to join her in breaking into his house. Rebecca steals a handbag, mentioning that her idol, Lindsay Lohan, has the same one. She also steals cash and the keys to a Porsche, which the pair use to flee the scene. With the cash, the two go on a shopping spree, affording themselves the luxury lifestyle they admire in magazines. Marc visits a nightclub with Rebecca and her friends Nicki Moore, Nicki's adoptive sister Sam, and Chloe Tainer, where they rub shoulders with celebrities such as Kirsten Dunst and Paris Hilton. While researching Hilton on the Internet, Marc and Rebecca realize that she will be out of town....
I only watched this in the hopes of seeing Emma Watson semi-nude, but the movie doesn't even manage that much. It's about a bunch of teenagers whose stupidity defies description stealing from celebrities whose stupidity also defies description. Usually a movie makes you identify with the characters to some degree, even if you don't really like them, but this movie just made me want to take a flamethrower and burn everyone in it to ashes. The only bright spot was seeing the male member of the gang board a bus to prison and imagining what the other inmates would do to him. If you have a shred of intelligence and dignity, you will not enjoy the film.
