Enjoyable movie about the trials of being a teen.

Cinema Crazed

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

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.

Mind-numbingly juvenile.

...a perfectly bland, homogenized, milquetoast piece of inconsequential would-be comedy fluff.

Sleep all day, party all night, never grow old, never die: it's fun to be a Disney starlet

...unapologetically geared towards the tween crowd, all other audiences be damned.

A self-absorbed sugar rush of a movie, this might please small girls but will leave a sour taste in everyone else's mouth.

A creative no man's land: nothing ventured, nothing gained, nothing worth watching.

Shadows on the Wall

An energetic cast and random lines of snappy dialog almost elevate this insipid comedy into something entertaining. But not quite.

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

I hope kids see through this film's slick production value and realize Lindsay Lohan's character is only a shade above contemptible much less worth their admiration.

Somehow the film gets through its entire running time without ever having a plot.

The movie's lame, but I'm inclined to agree with the kids on the Internet Movie Database message boards that Lohan could beat the crap out of Hillary Duff in a grudge match.

If Disney Pictures is looking to pander to the lowest urges of emerging girlhood, they have succeeded in this tacky and boring after-school special.

We go home wondering exactly what lessons movies like these are supposed to be teaching our children.
