...the end result is an effort that'll surely have a much more positive effect on fans than on neophytes to the Lizzie McGuire saga.

Reel Film Reviews

No one will claim that the pre-teen market is saturated with movies for girls, thus The Lizzie McGuire Movie is a welcome addition that fills the bill...

| January 4, 2004

A fantasy that teaches girls that popularity and material possessions are the most important things in life and will fall right into your lap if you're adorable enough.

Audience Reviews for The Lizzie McGuire Movie

Disney is kind of ruining the film industry with shit like this.

Super Reviewer

The songs had you wanting to dance along and sing and it's a real teen movie. I think I'll always have a soft spot for this film. It's a guilty pleasure and Lizzie McGuire was a noughtie's favourite on the Disney Channel. Smart move making a film from it.

Saw this years ago by accident on a plane. Seriously, only if you are a fan of the T.V. show then see it, if you aren't, stay FAR away.
