Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen DVD Review

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Find out whether Lindsay Lohan's latest Disney movie, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, is worth your allowance!

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.

The Dramatic Story

Confessions 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!

The Goods

There 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.

The Awful Truth

Unfortunately 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!)

DVD Features

Like 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!

Bottom Line

You 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.

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
