The Clique :: DVD Review
What’s worse than orange Crocs and tights under denim? Not being a member of the Pretty Committee! Find out if it's worth it to be a part of the legendary Pretty Committee!
What’s worse than orange Crocs and tights under denim? Not being a member of the Pretty Committee! When Claire Lyons moves to Westchester County, she quickly finds her bargain bin wardrobe isn’t going to cut it with queen bee, Massie Block, and the rest of the oh-so-fashionable[/kwlink] Clique. Massie, Alicia, Dylan and Kristen look like they’ve stepped out of a glossy magazine, but is there more to life at Octavian Country private school than hot hair, exclusive makeup and designer duds? At first it doesn’t seem so, and Claire has to contend with some catty scheming and jealous backstabbing, but maybe there’s a glimmer of hope hiding in all that bling.
Based on the Book Series
The Clique is based on the bestselling book series by Lisi Harrison and the movie’s done a great job of capturing the materialism and shallow voices of the characters. It’s best not to think too much when you’re watching this one—just enjoy the girl talk and the fabulous wardrobe—think eye candy, not brain candy. Nevertheless, the movie does a decent job at reminding its audience that although clothes and makeup are fun, there’s a lot more to a person than how much cash they drop on jeans.
Tyra Banks is the executive producer, so if you’re all about America’s Next Top Model, you’ll definitely love, The Clique. Most of us will relate to Claire, but sometimes it’s fun to be on Massie’s side of things and get to witness the problems of the rich and powerful—apparently they have as much trouble with boys as we do! The Clique proves that with a lot of confidence and a little compassion, any girl can score herself a great group of besties.
