    This is a movie whose title promises to show teenage viewers how to cope with the messed-up, grown-up world they are entering, not how to make it perfect -- or even how to make sense of it.

    Janney's role is smaller than Moore's, but it's hardly insignificant. Moore has youth on her side, and youth is timelessly appealing. But Janney is the bigger, more memorable presence, and she's much more fun to watch.

    The handful of comic moments will serve up a few good laughs.

    Competently if unremarkably directed by Englishwoman Clare Kilner, should prove compelling enough to Moore's huge legion of fans.

    A thoughtful but uneven teen picture, also has too much going on.
  6. How much can one girl grapple with over the course of an hour and a half?
  7. A bad, unimaginative story posing pretentiously as the very opposite.
