Jessica Darling's older sister gives her the "IT List," a checklist on how to navigate the middle school popularity hierarchy. The instructions appear simple enough to follow, but like life, nothing is as easy as it seems.
If you are expecting a big blockbuster movie than this is not the movie for you. Instead what you will get is a nice little Australian movie. Don't expect much from it and you will be happily rewarded. Granted the story is a little run of the mill and predictable but then again most family movies are so why should this one be any different?
The acting is not of the highest standard but it is acceptable enough to watch and accept their performances as a passing grade. As to the gymnastics side of the equation I am not really an expert but while again it wasn't of the highest standard it did seem passable enough for me and didn't really affect the movie in any way.
I may be a touch biased as this is one of my daughters favourite films but I have watched it a few times with her now and each time I have found it as enjoyable as the last so I have no problem in recommending it to anyone who may be thinking about giving this film a try.
If I have to have any real gripe about the movie is the fact that it had to many side stories going on that never really got much time to develop them fully. They tried to give all the characters backstories but never really gave us a chance to understand much about those stories. It is only a minor gripe which again doesn't really take away much from the movie so take it however you feel.
