Lessons about social responsibility are submerged in a bubble bath of innocent glamour; Amy Heckerling's Clueless looks like a mordant social satire by comparison.

Even Anjelica Huston as a rival cosmetics magnate struggles to inject any venom into the proceedings.

Welcome to adulthood, Hillary and Haylie Duff. Here are your T-Mobile Sidekicks and Tabloid news stories. Leave your personalities at the door.
January 1, 2011
A brain-numbing, fluffy flick for tweens.
July 6, 2010
An insipid mess not worthy of the tweens who flock to such flicks.
April 29, 2009
Fans of the Duffs finally have a film to look forward to while they're doing their nails and staring off into space.
November 20, 2008
Along the way, self-discovery bangs 'em over the head.
August 7, 2008
The Duff sisters are pleasant personalities, but the vapid bimbosity of their characters quickly becomes grating.
June 13, 2007
Forced to endure such casually offensive nonsense, the viewer ends up slumming it far more than the duff protagonists.
March 10, 2007
A Duff movie indeed.
March 7, 2007
Under the circumstances, Anjelica Huston and Lukas Haas manage not to embarrass themselves, but only because they're pretending to be in a different movie.
March 3, 2007
The film's sole purpose is to promote, with chilling lack of irony, Hilary Duff's own brand of perfume -- oh, and there's her single as well.
March 1, 2007
Watchable enough and by no means as bad as The Perfect Man, although there's not much here that'll interest the over-12s.
February 27, 2007
Messy, patronising and tonally confused, this vanity project - timed to co-incide with Hilary Duff's perfume launch - quite frankly stinks.

"This thing is screwier than Courtney Love!" whimpers Hilary in her usual chihuahua-on-helium whine. Even she, however, manages to shine next to her aggravating older sister, saddled as she is with all the comic timing of a mortally wounded elephant.
February 27, 2007
Haylie and sister Hilary Duff just don't have the comedy stylings to sell this half-baked story of heiress sisters battling to save their dad's cosmetics empire from ruin.
February 5, 2007
seems more of an ode to Paris and Nicky Hilton than a decent vehicle for these sisters
December 10, 2006
Frankly movies like Material Girls sicken me; they're base and soulless and entirely unworthy of the celluloid they were filmed upon.
September 8, 2006
A few funny lines spool out intermittently, but it's the inane-ness of Material Girls that grates. While Hollywood sisters Haylie and Hilary Duff tell each other money doesn't bring happiness, their actions speak otherwise
September 2, 2006
The villain (a greedy corporate man of some sort) isn't very fleshed out, but it's hard to believe that he's any worse than the two self-serving, appearance-obsessed protagonists, with whom the film asks young girls everywhere to identify.
