Under the circumstances, Anjelica Huston and Lukas Haas manage not to embarrass themselves, but only because they're pretending to be in a different movie.

Co-stars Anjelica Huston and Lukas Haas attempt to rise above it all, but you can almost feel them wincing at the confused tone and risible dialogue.

[It] isn't some light send-up of materialism. It's a light endorsement of it.

An incompetent spin on the poor-little-rich-girl story, the film involves a lot of wardrobe changes and product placements, and a smidgen of intrigue and some chaste romance.

It succeeds on its own terms. These days, even pre teens live in a material world.

Even by the low standards of the genre it represents, this female teen comedy represents a new nadir.

It's sort of reassuring that although Madge has seemingly given up starring in bad movies, her company is still financing terrible scripts.

The movie, which was not screened for critics, makes a joke of everyone who isn't wealthy, white and pencil thin.

The scariest part of Material Girls comes when you're sitting in the dark theater and start considering the possibility that young women might find these characters sympathetic.

Maybe Immaterial Girls would have been a more appropriate title.

A superficial tween comedy that mocks celebutantes like the Olsen twins while simultaneously pushing stars Hilary and Haylie Duff as their replacements.

You may find yourself longing for the intricate plotting and ensemble acting skills of the Olsen twins movies.

Madonna's anthem was only good-naturedly arrogant, but the SoCal twins, like the film's script, are arrogant, ghastly immature and offensive to any audience that isn't all of the above.

Nonsensical from the get-go, the girls' fish-out-of-water routine grows interminable.

Paris and Nicky Hilton exhibit more character nuance. And they're vaguely more entertaining to watch.
