Stays true to its name, all right, but there's no reason the film also had to be an embarrassingly unfunny and aimless chore to sit through.

At the very least, Material answers the question everyone wants to know: yes, Haylie is the better actress.

A superficial tween comedy that mocks celebutantes like the Olsen twins while simultaneously pushing stars Hilary and Haylie Duff as their replacements.

You may find yourself longing for the intricate plotting and ensemble acting skills of the Olsen twins movies.

Light but listless.

There is no edge to the movie at all, and that blandness will render it forgettable to anyone over the age of 12 or so, but for all that, it is pleasant enough, and occasionally even fun.

Madonna's anthem was only good-naturedly arrogant, but the SoCal twins, like the film's script, are arrogant, ghastly immature and offensive to any audience that isn't all of the above.

Nonsensical from the get-go, the girls' fish-out-of-water routine grows interminable.

Paris and Nicky Hilton exhibit more character nuance. And they're vaguely more entertaining to watch.

The film opens with the Duffs huffing and puffing their way through a remake of Madonna's 'Material Girl,' an ode to gold digging that Madonna sang with a touch of wry humor; the Duffs perform it as if it was 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic.'

Save your allowance, kids -- a mall trip would be way more fun than this ditzy Duff fluff.

Is Anjelica Huston in need of work? Is that why she's in this piece of crap?

As a film that sets out to poke fun at the LA, St Tropez tan, famous for being famous, stupid small dogs lifestyle, its far too candy-coated and lacks bite, while the comic timing is off.

Certainly doesn't bode well for either Duff Sister if this is the best script coming their way.
