After a promising start, the script begins to sound like it was written by little girls playing Barbies.

This thing makes Glitter look like gold.

For a jerky, cliché-riddled yarn about the evils of fame, Undiscovered has enough sensitivity, wit, and inadvertent guffaws to rise above its lame underpinnings.

Soap opera bad...Glitter bad...Avoid at all costs.

There is not a single moment in the undistinguished Undiscovered that will do for [Pell] James what those couple of compassionate, moving minutes do in Jim Jarmusch's [Broken Flowers].

I am no fan of Ashlee Simpson, nor of her retarded, buck-toothed sister, but that has nothing to do with my view of this film. It would be just as bad if it were Ashlee-free.

What can you say about a movie where a skateboard-riding bulldog has the best lines of dialogue?

Prolific music-video director Meiert Avis is making his feature film directorial debut with Undiscovered -- and his obvious greenness shows.

When Hollywood suits conduct their autopsy on what went wrong at the box office this summer, they may wish to exhume the corpse of Undiscovered for a closer inspection. If they can stand the stench.

Undiscovered feels more like a pilot for a glossy nighttime soap on Fox -- probably one that would be canceled midseason -- than a feature film with even a modicum of discernible originality or depth.

Some movies just deserve to be tucked away into obscurity. This is one of those movies.

How bad is it? Ashlee Simpson has a supporting role in it and her singing isn't the worst thing about it.

The script is every bit as literate as the content you'd find a back issue of "Blender," with just as much eye candy to bolster the thin material. Too bad this candy is sour.

Can somebody tell me why we're supposed to care about these one-dimensional MTV-spawned caricatures? Writer John Galt and director Meiert Avis sure haven't offered any clues.

Steven Strait has it all -- looks, talent, charisma and a smile to die for. Unfortunately, he can't save 'Undiscovered.'

Here, unplugged, unremorseful and unfathomably bad, is Undiscovered, a 'romantic comedy with a big heart' (that's publicity-speak) and a very small brain.

Incidentally, Simpson is pretty good, playing Luke and Briar's spunky pal. But her inoffensive goodness is a symptom of the movie's relentless homogeneity.

All this silliness swirls around for about an hour and a half and then you get to leave the theater. Unless you're being held there at gunpoint. And really, that's about the only excuse for being in a theater watching this thing in the first place.

Tyson, a brown and white English bulldog, has his own Web site, which offers clips of the eager fireplug flying down the street on his skateboard. In other words, you don't have to endure this dreadful movie to see him in action.

As a cautionary drama on the price of fame, Undiscovered could not tread on more exhaustively discovered territory, and the result is a reel-by-reel trail of cliches.
