Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

2006-03-30 12:39

Suddenly catapulted into the mall-dwelling teenage wilderness of New Jersey, New York City girl Lola (Lindsay Lohan) feels like her life has come to an abrupt halt. Longing for a return to the bright lights of the metropolis, her only salvation from the monotony of suburban life is the music of her favorite rock band, Sidarthur.

Fortunately for Lola, she meets Ella (Alison Pill), a fellow Sidarthur fan, who provides a modicum of intelligent life amongst the petty, scornful cliques that dominate her new high school. However, Lola's big-city attitude puts her in a heap of trouble, especially when she crosses paths with the most popular girl in school, Carla (Megan Fox).

Keen to usurp Carla from her high-and-mighty position, Lola sets out to take the much-desired lead in the school play, a position her archrival desperately covets. But when Sidarthur announces it is breaking up and playing a sold-out farewell show in New York City, a ticketless Lola makes it her mission to travel back to her own personal Mecca, see the performance, and meet her number one crush, singer Stu Wolff (Adam Garcia).

But with Carla hot on her heels, and in possession of a ticket for the concert, Lola soon finds that she's up against a lot more than she bargained for.

What the critics are saying:

"Lindsay Lohan stars in this modest, mildly engaging film as a proudly bohemian resident of Greenwich Village who is transplanted to a prosperous suburb in New Jersey."
- Dave Kehr, New York Times

"...stuck in a creative no man's land: nothing ventured, nothing gained, nothing worth watching."
- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film

"Supported by Lindsay Lohan's effervescent performance, Drama Queen has a fun flair for the dramatics but ultimately is a piece of fluff targeted to a limited audience."
- Kit Bowen, Hollywood.com

This well meaning but average teen comedy proves, at the very least, that cameras everywhere are still deeply in love with the bright-eyed and infectiously charming Lindsay Lohan. Pre-teen girls will, no doubt, swoon at the very sight of her, and she makes the movie almost watchable for everyone else - but only almost.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
