  1. It works. "Lizzie" is wholesome, smart and sweet.
  2. The action is light and lively all the way, poking inventive fun at everything from nosy little brothers to clueless hotel managers and romantic Romans who aren't as glamorous as they claim to be.

    By filling in what the story lacks in originality with easy attractions like pretty faces, set to fluffy music, the filmmakers lose the outsider edge the Lizzie McGuire franchise was built on.

    Just two weeks after successfully targeting boys with "Holes," Disney is giving girls something they want with this mild, quasi-romantic romp.

    Hilary Duff is beautiful and skilled, and I hope she finds something worthwhile to do with her talent before she truly does become the next Britney Spears and has to start worrying about the next Hilary Duff.
  6. How much adorable can one person take?

    If your kids are too young to sit unsupervised, get together with other parents and pay an older sibling or sitter to go.

    This score even shocks me. You would think this is got to be pure trash when actually it is pure gold. For what it is everything connects. Duff puts on a great performance and the characters don't come across as phony as i was expecting. A true surprise in a good way. Expand

    I should say that this movie is a total piece of dung, but it actually isn't that bad. Lizzie is very likable and that comes from the actress who plays her. I liked it then and I like it still. Expand
