...the end result is an effort that'll surely have a much more positive effect on fans than on neophytes to the Lizzie McGuire saga.

No one will claim that the pre-teen market is saturated with movies for girls, thus The Lizzie McGuire Movie is a welcome addition that fills the bill...

A fantasy that teaches girls that popularity and material possessions are the most important things in life and will fall right into your lap if you're adorable enough.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

As driving-around-in-the-car-with-the-top-down, putting-on-your-lip-gloss, loving-life moviemaking, it's all good.

Lizzie may be cheesy and disappointingly straight-laced but all in all she's a bit of fun.

Passable entertainment for the young teen set that's far from memorable, but at least offers a few sparks of life.
| Original Score: 71/100

Its tone is identical to the travelogue movies of the week that NBC used to spin from their hit sitcoms

Quick to capitalize on one of its assets, now that the 65-episode cap of Lizzie McGuire has been fulfilled, Disney has turned around and popped out a pay-per-view version.

A fresh and fabulous Cinderella fantasy, Lizzie McGuire is a delightful charmer about a young girl who dreams of being a pop star.

Movie's like this aren't supposed to be perfect in structure and form - they're for 13-year-olds who don't care that Lizzie doesn't speak the language or that her suitor's Italian has a hint of Brooklyn in it.

While the movie should prove to be manna from sit-com heaven for the show's fan base of kids ages 6-14, there's not much here to excite accompanying parents.

If you are older than this target group, you will find it rather boring and stupid.

Scrubbed so squeaky clean, you can eat off of the film stock.

If you fit into its target demographic, 'The Lizzie McGuire Movie' is inoffensive fluff. If your age surpasses your shoe size, you're better off re-grouting your tile.

Duff is a charming heroine who carries the movie cheerfully, if not gracefully-the pratfalls come early and often.

... [Duff's] a very charming young actress, but the material just isn't there.

Film Threat

The film is corny, predictable, and manipulative to the point that you feel like there's electrodes attached from the screen to your brain, but, by the end of this film, I'll be damned if I didn't feel genuine affection for it and Lizzie in particular.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

If the hordes of screaming kids in the audience at the screening I saw are any indication, The Lizzie McGuire Movie hits its mark.
