Critic Consensus: Sloppily assembled fluff that won't have much of interest for anyone who isn't a preteen girl.

Movie Info

British actress/director Sara Sugarman makes her U.S. feature debut with the Disney-produced comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, based on the young-adult novel by Dyan Sheldon and adapted for the screen by Gail Parent. The story concerns a popular urban teenager named Mary Elizabeth Cep (Lindsay Lohan), who is convinced her real name is Lola. Unfortunately, her family moves from fashionable New York City to a small suburb in New Jersey. Disturbed by her environment, Lola is quick to wage war against the popular Carla Santini (Megan Fox). She's also pursued by high school hunk Stu Wolff (Adam Garcia), but chooses to focus her attention on winning back her title of Most Popular Girl in School. With the help of a frumpy drama teacher (Carol Kane) and shy new friend Ella (Alison Pill), Lola creates a dramatic performance to earn her coveted high status.

A star vehicle with three flat tires and sugar in the gas tank.

Dear Diary: The truth is that there's nothing much to confess in the made-for-tweens comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.

Smug, sanitized fantasy, in which the hysterical blonde attention-seeker, in a succession of sparkly outfits, is uprooted from New York to the boring suburbs and learns boring suburban values like telling the truth.

A movie that -- even by Disney's formulaic standards -- is about as cut and dried as the phone book.

The superficial sweetness masks something rotten.

Sugarman's muddled comedy serves only to drive home the cliché that the teenage female mind is a roiling mass of contradictions and petty concerns.

Audience Reviews for Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Such a sweet & adorable movie that definitely begs the question, What the hell happened to Lindsay Lohan. I mean this movie was just fabulous with Lohan as the star Lola Cep, who is just a teenager looking for stardom. Even though all of us know that Lohan will probably never come back from her drug & alcohol addiction, we should all remember that she was once a great child star.

Another average chick flick. Wasn't awful, but it wasn't great. Another guilty pleasure. One of those films that you might watch now and again if you're bored.
