Material Girls Reviews

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.

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

It's not Clueless, just clueless.

August 21, 2006
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.
August 21, 2006
It succeeds on its own terms. These days, even pre teens live in a material world.
August 21, 2006
Even by the low standards of the genre it represents, this female teen comedy represents a new nadir.

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.
August 18, 2006
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.
August 18, 2006
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.

August 18, 2006
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.
