Hard to know how to rate this one. I certainly wouldn't want to imply to anyone that this is good - far from it. But if you have gone into it knowing it has a TATU theme, then you probably pretty much know what to expect, and that's exactly what this movie delivers.
Two girls meet on the TATU message boards. Mischa Barton plays a Russian girl quite convincingly. People pan her as a bad actress, but there are certain roles she pulls off well, this was one of them. I was really impressed that she managed to speak the language and didn't seem fake. The English guy in this was much more hammy and fake, and he was possibly for real!
The other girl is an American living in Russia with her bitchy stepmother.
Obviously the two strike up a friendship which turns to love (what else would you expect, really?! Come on - TATU!). Through plot twists that feel unrealistic the girls are out on their own and moving with a bad crowd. The American girl discovers drugs, Mischa may or may not be hooking herself for accommodation. Then she is arrested and through even more unbelievable twists of plot, there is a happy ever after ending which features a cameo and song from the TATU girls themselves. It's all pretty far fetched and doesn't make sense in parts, but if you like TATU you're going to want to watch this.
The only thing that saved this movie was the ending which was very sweet. The whole movie really was a complete waste of time otherwise.
