Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen DVD Review
Lindsay Lohan made waves with her star performance in Freaky Friday and now she's back on the big screen in Disney's latest teen flick, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Find out if Lindsay has pulled off another blockbuster or if you're better off sitting this one out.
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen - The Dramatic StoryConfessions of a Teenage Drama Queen is based on a book and tells the story of Mary Cep (AKA Lola Cep), played by Lindsay Lohan. Lola's mom moves her from New York to New Jersey, which Lola believes is the end of her existence. She quickly makes a friend at her new school, though, and lands the lead role in the school play. The only problem? Carla Santini. The most popular girl at Lola's new high school is determined to make Lola's life miserable. That includes taunting Lola about getting to attend a party at Lola's favorite band's house. Lola isn't about to let Carla humiliate her, so she recruits her friend Ella to find a way into that party - even though the party happens to be in New York City!
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen - The GoodsThere are some great tunes throughout this flick that'll have you boppin' in your seat. Lindsay Lohan makes another appearance on this soundtrack with the lead track, which is pretty catchy. Stu Wolf (played by Adam Garcia), the lead singer of Lola's fave band, Sidarthur, is that stereotypical, self-obsessed rock star and he does such a great job that you'll wish he were in more of the movie. Also, Carol Kane, who plays Miss Baggoli, plays the role of music teacher perfectly. If you haven't already had a teacher like Miss Baggoli, it's guaranteed you will before the end of your school career.
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen - The Awful TruthUnfortunately for Lindsay Lohan fans, this is not her best flick. While she managed to hold her own in Freaky Friday, Lindsay really doesn't shine in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. And, even though it was based on a book, the story was all over the place. The movie's main message seemed to be that you should be yourself no matter what other people think. But, this message gets blown out of the water at the end and you're left instead with a feeling that life is all about being the coolest, most popular kid in school. (Which it's not!)
Confession of a Teenage Drama Queen - DVD FeaturesLike most DVDs, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen comes complete with commentary by a few different peeps. You get to hear stuff from the director, producers and even the writer of the Confessions script. You also get to check out a deleted scene that didn't make it into the flick and a music video from Lindsay Lohan!
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen - Bottom LineYou may want to skip seeing this Disney flick in the theater and wait 'til it's released on DVD. Lindsay Lohan's performance isn't that great, and the whole movie feels like it's missing something - like a good plot! Save your cash for something else and grab the Freaky Friday DVD if you need a Lindsay Lohan fix.
