  1. At a time when crassness and dumbing down pervade popular entertainment, especially movies aimed at youthful audiences, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen dares to be smart.
  2. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    This junior chick flick merely reinforces superficial clichés one associates with female teens: petty fights, intense highs and lows, and self-absorption.
  3. Girls ages 6-14 will get a charge from the fashion show, animation effects and, to a lesser degree, the cartoonish antics. But like most adolescent histrionics, the pic's impact on adults will be limited to mild amusement alternating with annoyance.
  4. Reviewed by: Andrea Gronvall
    A smart script by Gail Parent (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman) boosts the first half of this comedy.
  5. Tethered to screenwriter Gail Parent's adaptation of Dyan Sheldon's novel, plus the demands of bigwig producers, it's a testament to Sugarman's artistry that she sustains her funky playfulness--a hallmark of her earlier work--throughout most of this film.
  6. 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.
  7. 12
    Every ounce of the film feels artificially upbeat.

    I don't think there is actually a story anywhere in here. It feels like a bunch of random freaky scenes joined together. Still....Lohan manages to win me over. Expand

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