Vapid story, shallow concept, bad acting, unoriginal characters, and a climax so cheesy I had to shut it off to keep from kicking in the screen.

Duff carries off the lead role with confidence and grace, exuding a kind of fresh-faced naiveté not often found in other young female stars these days.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Duff's sunny disposition makes her a likable movie presence, but I've yet to see anything from her...beyond a 'let's put on a show' high school drama club enthusiasm.

In watching the anemically manipulative Raise Your Voice, one wouldn't mind calling for a touch of well-needed laryngitis.

It's all very formulaic and fatuous.

This film is nothing more than a series of cliches strung together with a lot of shots of Hilary Duff in tight tank tops.

Dubbed this year's "Fame," Sean McNamara's film has very little in common with the terrific 1980 movie. **

Hilary Duff finds "Fame" amid this tepid, tremulous fluff, aimed specifically at 'tweens.

Sean McNamara directs this pleasant piece of fluff that is aimed at teens.

Raise Your Voice is like a Hallmark movie of the week produced by an MTV intern.

When Homer Simpson takes a can of Duff beer and crushes it against his thick skull, it's curious how the resulting object has all the dimension of one of Hilary Duff's roles.
| Original Score: 1/4

I like Hilary Duff, she's very charming, but she's stuck on this after school special level with these movies.
