When Katie and Alex visit Beth in the rehabilitation facility, Alex says "I know you wanna help your family out, but maybe we could help out like the Girl Guides do by selling cookies or doing odd jobs." This shows that script has been written with a US audience in mind, because Girls Guides in Australia do not sell "cookies", and because Australians use the word "biscuits" rather than "cookies", See more »
In just about every country in the world it is a severe crime to take naked photos of a 16 year old, and to hire someone to do it. Which occurs in the film and isn't even thought of or mentioned when trying to stop photos. See more »
We should stop giving films the okay to do unbelievable things and to you the say "It's just a movie" to get away. The whole plot line revolves around the mother of the 16 year old famous Honey trying to lose her innocent look by getting her to become a pop star whose line are all about sex and to have naked photos of her leaked. While the mothers excuse is believable that she wants fame and is on pills, but the rest of the film falls quickly apart. A Local Paparazzi takes window photos of a 16 year old girl and tries to blackmail the family, although in Australia he would've broken dozens of laws and would be facing a big number in prison. The whole husband twist was so foreseen that it added nothing to the story, neither did the romantic interest or the extra detail of the sisters.
