How are girls supposed to behave in a culture that tells them they're Disney princesses for the first 12 years and sex toys after that? Girls Rock! has one answer: Strap on a Fender and rage against the machine.

There's too little clarity or thoroughness in the biographies, too few prolonged scenes of the girls creating their songs.

There's so much joy and coming-of-age angst turned into nuggets of gold that it seems uncharitable to ask, what might be missing (more onscreen appreciation for rock's goddesses and gods, perhaps.)

The directors take a compassionate approach that encourages their young subjects to open up in remarkable ways, making this a must-see both for girls and the grownups who love them.

Though Girls Rock! is nothing if not well meaning, it doesn't always feel like the best possible film on the subject.

Frankly, the scenes of these girls trying to work together and share ideas are enough to make the movie's point.

In one slender documentary codirectors Shane King and Arne Johnson accomplish what Hollywood routinely bungles: incisively depicting the inner lives of complicated young females.

This dreary doc does little more than underline the talking points.
