Implausabilities aside, Confessions is a light lark that's colorful, spirited, and chock full of clothes.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

... Nothing if not fluffy -- but oddly, egregiously offensive in ways far more insidious and damaging than merely wasting our time.
| Original Score: 1/4

A word to the wise: If you find the title tantalizing, you'll probably love the film.

A juvenile 'I Love Lucy' episode...that's more irritating than charming.

Even at less than an hour and a half, it still feels absurdly padded.

The whole enterprise feels desperately thrown together for a teen/mall profit and rather cheap.
Brian Webster
Apollo Guide

Not a winner, but it's at least passable entertainment for kids whose parents want their idols to preach against drunkenness and learn that lying isn't a good thing.
| Original Score: 68/100

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.

A string of unrelated scenes about the high-school musical ... the band's final concert, some random moments in which some standard-issue popular girls are mean to Lola, and Lola's active fantasy life.
| Original Score: 2/4

Much of Confessions seems clueless and -- even worse for moviegoers of any age -- listless.

Why is this chiffon doodle essentially offensive? Because it is about nothing, and it turns the dreams of girls into piffle.
| Original Score: 1/4
Joe Baltake

February 20, 2004
Both the actress and the character she's playing are stranded in a vapid film about vapid teens.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

The gimmicks and goofy daydream sequences mount up until the film collapses under their weight.
| Original Score: 2/5

It's a pubescent fantasia without soul or purpose beyond positioning star Lindsay Lohan as the successor to Hilary Duff's throne.
Rob Vaux

February 20, 2004
The film's essential soullessness bangs back against its cheer, reminding us of the wrinkled businessmen's hands reaching for our dollars from behind the sunny smiles.

A shlocky, sloppy and crass adolescent comedy.
