Lola (Lindsay Lohan) is a teenage girl with a tendency towards the drama.tic When her mum decides to move from New York to the suburbs with Lola and her twin sisters, Lola is crushed, as she loved living in New York, but quickly makes friends with fellow Sidarthur fan Ella (Alison Pill) and enemies with popular girl Carla (Megan Fox). When the devasting news breaks out that Sidarthur will stop as a band, it becomes extremely important for the two girls to come to the very last Sidarthur concert, especially since Carla’s rich father has already gotten her tickets.
Based by the book by Dyan Sheldon this is a basic high school drama, popular girl is a bitch, lead character becomes friends with underdog and challenges the queen of high school. Besides being silly, this movies biggest challenge is the fact that the lead character is a very selfcentered drama queen, as the titel strongly hints, and Lohan (Mean Girls 2004) just isn’t a good enough actress or charming enough to make her likeable, leaving you with a heroine you feel like slapping when she, once again, lies to get attention. Fox (Transformers 2007) is as seen before good at playing bitchy, when you feel like slapping her it is the intention, and at moments she is actually more likeable than Lola. Adam Garcia (Coyote Ugly 2000) is good as Stu Wolf, the lead singer of Sidarthur, but with a lead character this annoying it just isn’t enough to save the movie.
Courtney Taylor-Taylor the lead singer for The Dandy Warhols appears as a cameo at Stu’s party wearing a Dandy Warhol’s t-shirt.
