I took my 2 daughters to see this film today. They are big fans of Amanda Bynes??? from Big Fat Liar. She was terrific in Big Fat Liar and continues to impress in her new movie.

I'll be as brief as possible: Good movie. Definitely a teen girl movie as the crowd today was packed with school age girls!

Of course it was predictable. They made no secret who were the evil people in this film were, and who we were suppose to root for.

To be very nit-picky I thought the director had too many "cute" glamour shots of the lead star. It made me think she's only playing to the camera instead of acting in her role. I guess when they ran out of dialogue, they decided to shoot Amanda trying on cool clothes and being cute. Posted Image

But hey, she's adorable and has great scene presence, and will be around awhile.

Colin Firth was good as well. So was Kelly Preston. Although a major stretch playing a mom-rock singer????

I'm rating this film somewhat differently with consideration to its target audience, and other similar films.
