A star vehicle with three flat tires and sugar in the gas tank.

Dear Diary: The truth is that there's nothing much to confess in the made-for-tweens comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.

Smug, sanitized fantasy, in which the hysterical blonde attention-seeker, in a succession of sparkly outfits, is uprooted from New York to the boring suburbs and learns boring suburban values like telling the truth.

Enjoyable movie about the trials of being a teen.

Though Lohan and Fox are fun to look at, and Allison Pill is adorable, the film is pure mindless, ridiculous fluff.

Cinema Crazed

Only the 13-and-under set will buy into the Confessions vision of teen-hood. Most actual teens have already noted the lack of opportunities for air-guitar montages.

Audience Reviews for Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Such a sweet & adorable movie that definitely begs the question, What the hell happened to Lindsay Lohan. I mean this movie was just fabulous with Lohan as the star Lola Cep, who is just a teenager looking for stardom. Even though all of us know that Lohan will probably never come back from her drug & alcohol addiction, we should all remember that she was once a great child star.

Another average chick flick. Wasn't awful, but it wasn't great. Another guilty pleasure. One of those films that you might watch now and again if you're bored.
