Erica contradicts herself pretty badly in the poolside conversation with Jerrica when she is trying to get her to sign the solo contract. She says she owns the name "Jem" and all rights, which means that Jerrica and the other three girls would've had to have signed a group contract at some point. But then she tries to get Jerrica to sign a solo contract. This would be in breach of the previous contract they signed. There is no way they can be performing under this record label without a deal of some kind in place. And even if no group contract has been signed previously, then that means Erica cannot own the rights to the "Jem" name. See more »


Kimber: You're internet famous. That's like the second best thing to being actually famous.

Has a real life natural feel to it...
25 October 2015 | by Movie MaxSee all my reviews

I read a few reviews before this film came out and they were all wrong. It's a nice take on the cartoon. I wouldn't change it for some cheesy 80's perm and spandex flick. This movie feels like its messages come from the heart. The actresses were all excellent. Their outfits were all cool and respectable looking. Back in the day, I watched the Jem and the Holograms cartoons with my younger sister, they were on after my G.I.Joe and Thundercats. Yesterday, decades later, I went to see it with my young daughter. She loved it, wants it on DVD and I was pleasantly surprised at the emotion and acting conveyed to the audience. I give it a 10, for all those premature whiners out there, who judged this movie from the very first trailer. Quality family entertainment.
