The movie is uneven, but it has scored well during previews, and there's a reason: Sleepover fills a niche-audience void.

This is the kind of movie a young girl can take and make her own, and in a world full of pandering entertainment, that's something special.

First- time director Joe Nussbaum keeps it all buzzing along at such a clip that if one bit falls flat, the next one kicks the film back into gear.

The movie isn't trying to be anything other than a breezy romp, and on that level, it succeeds.

I'd say we're looking at the Gigli of 'tween flicks in terms of box-office. At best, it's likely to be the little movie that died of indifference.
