  1. “Inside the Mind of Mischa Barton” would have been a much better bet than The Beautiful Life.
  2. Laughable plot, wooden dialogue, cutout characters; stupid title appendage to make it more textable; usual cynical CW glorification of teen sexuality and substance abuse; mediocre acting.
  3. 25
    It keeps the proud tradition alive with dialogue so bad, it'll make you laugh out loud; acting so shallow, it could make a model look brainy; and actors so unbelievable, they can't even get the runway stomp right.
  4. Speaking from outside the target demo but from long-suffering experience watching bad television, go with "unwatchable."

    This show is very well put together. It obviously failed due to poor advertisement and not because there was anything wrong with it.
