A brain-numbing, fluffy flick for tweens.

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.

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.

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

An insipid mess not worthy of the tweens who flock to such flicks.

Frankly movies like Material Girls sicken me; they're base and soulless and entirely unworthy of the celluloid they were filmed upon.

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

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

Forced to endure such casually offensive nonsense, the viewer ends up slumming it far more than the duff protagonists.

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.

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

The Duff sisters are pleasant personalities, but the vapid bimbosity of their characters quickly becomes grating.

Along the way, self-discovery bangs 'em over the head.

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

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.

Fans of the Duffs finally have a film to look forward to while they're doing their nails and staring off into space.

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

seems more of an ode to Paris and Nicky Hilton than a decent vehicle for these sisters

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