LOL is DOA, a shapeless and charmless teen-skewing trifle stocked with trendy slanguage and social-network gimcracks that make it seem like something four years past its expiration date.

It's a shame in a year that gave us "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," we have this tepid piece of junk.

Miley Cyrus overacts in sex 'n' drugs high school drama.

What's of real interest here...is the casual, unforced portrayal just how indulged, spoilt, undisciplined and self-centred these iGen teens are.

Humdrum all the way.

Actually, LOL is a lot like an episode of Gilmore Girls, only the mother and daughter are total creeps and the characterizations are completely insulting.

Audience Reviews for LOL

For a movie cleverly-if-cutesily called "LOL" (main girl's name is Lola, shortened to the ubiquitous internet slang) with the mawkish tagline of "You can change your status but not your heart," there's very little laughing out loud or status changing going on with the characters in the movie, to say even less for the viewing audience. The teen drama is vague and insipid, born of silly secrets, obvious misunderstandings, and a triangle of near-identical hipster boys.

Miley Cyrus rocks the honey blonde hair, but she is still scrunchy-faced and faux-angry and probably can't speak a lick of French with her thick drawl. Ashley Greene, herself, seems to be aware that she's the only twenty-five-year-old-looking super senior fawning over the boys at this school. Even Demi Moore is wooden.

Okay. Seen it all before and done better, but this was mildly entertaining. I didn't hate it.

"This movie is actually spot on when it comes to mother and daughter relationships. Especially when the mother had the child at a younger age. You still are growing and changing and sometimes are going through similar changes as your almost adult child. I know it's really a shocking discovery when you find out that your parents are human and still making mistakes and learning. I liked the movie, but the story wasn't strong enough. The acting by some wasn't that great either. Miley does OK in this film. Her crying seemed a bit fake at times. I found it really hard to believe her. The supporting cast really helped make this movie watchable. I miss Demi in films. I liked her in this. I wouldn't mind seeing her in more movies again. I think it's worth at least a one time watch."
