Martha Coolidge's direction treats the whole adventure with more respect than it deserves, which also makes one wish that she'd been able to work with the Duffs on something much more worthwhile.

[It] isn't some light send-up of materialism. It's a light endorsement of it.

As if one Duff wasn't enough for us.

I barely buy them as sisters, let alone as whoever these characters are supposed to be.

An incompetent spin on the poor-little-rich-girl story, the film involves a lot of wardrobe changes and product placements, and a smidgen of intrigue and some chaste romance.

The fact is, neither Hilary nor Haylie have any flair for subtle comedy.

It succeeds on its own terms. These days, even pre teens live in a material world.

Even by the low standards of the genre it represents, this female teen comedy represents a new nadir.

It's sort of reassuring that although Madge has seemingly given up starring in bad movies, her company is still financing terrible scripts.

The movie, which was not screened for critics, makes a joke of everyone who isn't wealthy, white and pencil thin.

The scariest part of Material Girls comes when you're sitting in the dark theater and start considering the possibility that young women might find these characters sympathetic.

Maybe Immaterial Girls would have been a more appropriate title.

finally drives a Duff vehicle into the land of beguilingly awful.

There's a happily ever after ending complete with cute new boyfriends. But on the way there, the movie has a surprising number of inapprpriate and ugly choices considering the target audience and the PG rating.

You might remember it from May when it starred Lindsay Lohan and was called Just My Luck.

With the exception of Anjelica Huston's regal supporting turn, 'Material Girls' is an immaterial movie.

This is indeed one dumb film.
