Crazy Credits

After Murphy is taken away in the ambulance at the end of the film, an explanation of her fate is given. Immediately after this, the film flashes back in time very briefly, showing a young Murphy posing for a photographer during the making of Clueless (1995). As soon as this quick moment has been revisited, the credits roll. See more »

Horrible miscast of Brittany.
8 September 2014 | by imakeitsooSee all my reviews

Wow, looks nothing like her, chubby and nothing like the beautiful actress with the sexy voice I would have expected them to try to cast to be like, In fact, the blonde friend would have been such a better match for looks and acting. Nothing against the actress, but I was so looking forward to seeing this movie but now can't even make it past the first 15 minutes. Even the actress's voice is annoying.

I fell in love with her in Deadline and would watch any movies she was in...but not this one about her. .

Why did they make her seem so clueless? Truly a rare failure of a Lifeime movie. Thank goodness Brittany is not alive to see this movie about her life. Of course, too bad this wonderful actress is no longer around period.
