  1. I confess to a deep uncertainty about whether this can be rightly called a movie. A bunch of scenes, maybe... I confess to a cynical belief that Lola isn't actually a role but just a succession of costume changes.
  2. Another casualty of the uncomfortable branding so common to the teen genre, the same branding one sees in a film starring Hilary Duff, or Amanda Bynes, or the next sweet but bland blond actress that comes down the assembly line.
  3. Reviewed by: Anya Kamenetz
    Smug, sanitized fantasy.
  4. It's a silly, giggly piece of pink-colored fluff, as hyperactive as its heroine and as redolent of bubble gum and Love's Baby Soft cologne as Lola apparently is. Yet the superficial sweetness masks something rotten.
  5. Even by Disney's formulaic standards -- is about as cut and dried as the phone book.
  6. It breaks director Billy Wilder's most important movie commandment: Thou Shall Not Bore. It's just not funny.
  7. 25
    Shlocky, sloppy and crass adolescent comedy.
  8. The movie [Sugarman] made gives little indication that she understands teen girls, dramatic or plain. Much of Confessions seems clueless and -- even worse for moviegoers of any age -- listless.
  9. 12
    Every ounce of the film feels artificially upbeat.

    If I had to describe this movie in 3 words,
    Probably the worst movie I ever watched.

    I think that Lindsay Lohan is wonderful. "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" is perfect for teenagers. I think that everyone will enjoy with this movie. 100% recommended! Full Review »
