Critic Reviews for LOL

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (6)

  • LOL is DOA, a shapeless and charmless teen-skewing trifle stocked with trendy slanguage and social-network gimcracks that make it seem like something four years past its expiration date.

  • A glossy but shallow Hollywood adaptation of the hit French film Lol: Laughing Out Loud. The original director, Liza Azuelos, is at the helm too, but the sass and spark of the French movie seems to have been lost in translation.

  • It's a shame in a year that gave us "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," we have this tepid piece of junk.

  • Miley Cyrus overacts in sex 'n' drugs high school drama.

  • What's of real interest here...is the casual, unforced portrayal just how indulged, spoilt, undisciplined and self-centred these iGen teens are.

  • Humdrum all the way.

Audience Reviews for LOL

  • Dec 30, 2013
    For a movie cleverly-if-cutesily called "LOL" (main girl's name is Lola, shortened to the ubiquitous internet slang) with the mawkish tagline of "You can change your status but not your heart," there's very little laughing out loud or status changing going on with the characters in the movie, to say even less for the viewing audience. The teen drama is vague and insipid, born of silly secrets, obvious misunderstandings, and a triangle of near-identical hipster boys. Miley Cyrus rocks the honey blonde hair, but she is still scrunchy-faced and faux-angry and probably can't speak a lick of French with her thick drawl. Ashley Greene, herself, seems to be aware that she's the only twenty-five-year-old-looking super senior fawning over the boys at this school. Even Demi Moore is wooden.

    Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore star in the coming-of-age drama LOL, an ugly and monotonous film that has no depth. The story follows seemingly ordinary teenager Lola, who struggles to deal with an overbearing mother, a cheating ex-boyfriend, and the other trials and tribulations of high school. The film is poorly written, and none of the characters have any dimension. Compounding the problem is the poor acting, which does nothing to make the characters interesting or likable. LOL is a pretentious piece of garbage that's shallow and tedious.

    You can change your status, but not your heart. Good movie! I can understand why "wanna be" critics feel like this is a bad movie but for real this movie is not suppose to be taken seriously. It's not an oscar movie we get it.. but don't criticized it like one. I thought this movie was fun and worth my time so go see it if you want on a lonely night. In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes, and Facebook, Lola and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola's mom, Anne, "accidentally" reads her teenage daughter's racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, LOL is a fresh coming-of-age story for modern times.

    Okay. Seen it all before and done better, but this was mildly entertaining. I didn't hate it.
