What a great movie!

Being 27, when i saw the first 5 minutes of this movie i thought oh boy, what have i wasted hard drive space on now... By the end, i couldn't believe how good it was.. Now i don't claim to be any kind of movie critic whatsoever... I watch anything that gets put in front of me.. and i always check for IMDb ratings and reviews before i watch them... This movie had messages that were just absolutely beautiful for the youth of today.. and possibly even the older folk... Its not about how much money you have or what you enjoy doing.. Its about the connection you have with a person... And it doesn't matter what the people around you (your friends or anyone else) think... If someone makes you happy keep them close... The acting??? Oh my God? Am i right?? This little brunette is going to be a star for a very long time... I cannot believe how good she is... Never judge a book by its cover... Start from the inside.. and work your way out...

Light hearted high school story

The movie starts with Dylan dreaming of winning a beauty pageant. We get to see her life as a high school diva. She has 2 friends who aspire to be like her. Her followers. We see she had an old friend who she ditched when she became popular. We see a rival who also wants to be the Blossoms Queen. And we see her being rude to our hero, who is a "Film Geek". The other angle is through this geek named Josh. Josh is not cool. He has weird friends. He has a really bad car. He thinks Dylan is completely lame. Totally clichéd characters, right? A diva and a geek…. What now? They'll first fight and then fall in love? Right, like that's new! But it is! When these two clichéd characters come together, we see something really spontaneous and original. None of the characters are truly cliché. They have another side. Of course this movie is not for the ones who want something meaningful to come out of the 90 minutes they spend on it. Its light, its funny and its worthy of one watch and a lot of giggles. Matt is pretty good but he smiles a lot. Sarah is cute and girlie. And as always you get that Disney feeling when the movie ends. In Marshal Erikson's words, you'll be "Disneyed"!

Cute, simple, close minded

I literally laughed out loud when I read one IMDb reviewer start reviewing this as it was some sort of artistic piece of expression. They used terms like 'innocuous' and 'film technique.' This is a Disney made for TV movie made for 11-14 year olds. You must review the film from that stand point or don't waste your time. This is not for adults. This isn't meant to be raunchy or sexy or outside of the box. It was meant to be fun and cute and that is what it is. Still its not the most fun it could have been and essentially is very shallow in its performance but young girls will likely still get a chuckle out of it. In fact the whole movie is probably what an episode of Hannah Montana or another Disney type show would have done only a few years ago. Still the movie is watchable and has some laughs and some genuinely heart felt moments as well. But in true Disney style everything is placed perfectly in a little box and each character is painted line by line to fit the story. Sarah Hyland has hit stardom on the phenomenal and brilliant TV Series Modern Family. I'm not sure that makes her ready to carry a movie but she does well enough playing the uppity Disney snob turned into the sweet misunderstood princess. She certainly plays the 'mean girl' part of it well enough but the story has to really force out her inner good side to get the plot moving. Matt Prokop is actually really good as the nerdy good guy that falls in love. He fits the Disney charmer perfectly and has good charisma and him and Hyland have really good chemistry making the film even more cute. There is a big supporting cast and they are all decent in their clichéd roles but none of them stand out particularly. They are mostly there for laughs or plot development. Director Jeffrey Hornaday is a rather strange choice for directing what is essentially a kids film. He hasn't got a lot of experience behind the camera but has worked on a lot of big Hollywood films. So I think he took this in stride and just did the basics for the movie and overall that's okay. The film works for what it is. It doesn't try to be outstanding and in many ways that is its charm as well as its fault. But what it all boils down to is that its a cute, fun little romance flick for the pre-teen audience. Its clean and simple and not exactly a big budget production but probably worth watching with your kids. 6/10
