I'm one of those people who loves bad movies.

In the high school plot it tries to follow one similar to Mean Girls but fails miserablly.

I saw this movie recently and and about 10 minutes into it I turned it off.

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen is one of the best tween comedies to come out in years. The title is brilliant, the poster is very cute, and Lindsay Lohan does not disappoint with her acting. It's a simple story and the plot is almost nonexistant, but it is told in a unique and very clever away.

Overall, I really enjoyed the film, but two things bothered me. It would have been nice for some of the lesser characters to have been fleshed out, especially Lohan's love interest, who is just not given enough to do. I couldn't understand why they liked each other or how they got together at the end. His character had no purpose and only seemed to be there to have the 'needed' love interest. Doesn't work! Also, the musical number near the end of the film seemed to come out of nowhere, and only to promote Lohan's CD. It was a cheap shot and didn't work and ALMOST, but not quite, ruined what is an otherwise top-notch entry in forgettable tween comedies.

I think the reason the film ultimately succeeds is because of Lohan's character Lola (Real Name: Mary), who is very fun and likeable. Her view of life is a great one and I am sure the drama queen in all of us can relate to her exaggerated way of thinking. Lohan brings charm and sass to the role and makes her character very special. Lola is one of the most wonderful cinematic characters I have encountered and she truly made the film rise above-average.

Add the always wonderful Carol Kane, Glenne Headly, Adam Garcia (Coyote Ugly), and Alison Pill (Pieces of April) to the mix, and you have a winner. This was truly a nice change of pace.

Lindsay Lohan is a splendid actress who made the remakes of THE PARENT TRAP and FREAKY FRIDAY really special. She tries with her same talent and charm in this, but can't save the movie from being ultimately just a bit stupid. One hopes this doesn't represent her wave of the future. Hopefully she'll go on to get better roles rivaling those first two mentioned. This movie just dwells a little too much on the obsession of her age group with a band called Siddarthur, that is breaking up and causing everyone to think their world is ending. Siddarthur is a fictitious band, I suppose. Is it meant to be a pun on Siddharta? Anyhow this films features Lohan's character's and her friend's adventures as they roam New York City trying to get to Siddarthur's last concert. Meanwhile, back in her suburban school, Lohan's character is trapped in a grudge match with the school bully as to who will play the lead in the class play. Some things work themselves out in various ways, but some opportunities are missed, and a bit too much of it is more silly than entertsaining.

I see a lot of reviews floating around of people saying just how unrealistic and ridiculous this movie was. And I have to say... duh, people! Being unrealistic and ridiculously funny was the whole point of this movie. Sorry if it didn't have a deep, scary tradgedy and oh, yes, no one died. How sad for you poor, violence loving, plot overrating reviewers.

One thing I have to admit is that when my sister bought me the DVD I wasn't looking forward to watching the movie because I thought it would be boring and I'd fall asleep and yada, yada, yada. I was totally and completely wrong and I beg Lindsay to forgive me for my judging the movie by its cover.

Within the first couple minutes of watching the movie my sister and I were cracking up like nobody's business. We've enjoyed all of Lindsay's movies like Parent Trap, Life Size, and, of course, Mean Girls, and this one exceeded the level of awesome. It is on a level of awesome, which awesome hasn't even seen yet. The laughs are nonstop and I MEAN nonstop.

The characters were all so very wonderful. First there's Lola. See, I knew she would be dramatic, but that dramatic? It was cool. Plus I liked her parents. Then there was Ella. Sweetie turned toughie by her new best friend. Plus Lola and Ella became sort of like soul sisters, which is something I can relate to. Carla, the classic bitch, is next. I was surprised by her. Why? Because the evil character is supposed to be an ugly airhead. Why in anyone's name was she that hot? That was just... different. Change of pace, though. I liked it. My favorite character out of all of them, though, was Miss Baggolli. She DEFINED funny. I was up all night laughing at her parts. I literally didn't get any sleep. She is the best teacher character I have ever seen and she was just so cool.

This is the type of movie that belongs on TV. Lindsay Lohan is multi-talented and charismatic as "Lola" who feels like a fish out of water when her mom moves from NY to NJ. She wants to be the drama queen in more ways than one, and engages in making up stories to impress peers in her new town. The drama instructor character is a bit annoying, and the battle for acceptance among teenage girls is becoming a cliche. The music in the film is OK (Lohan sings multiple songs, and this movie features another cover version of Bowie's "Changes," recently included in Shrek 2) while the whole storyline about Lola and her not-dead dad and the Sid-Arthur concert are like something from a TV comedy show or TV movie. This movie is aimed at a young audience and it shows. That said, this movie is fine for what it is, but it could have aspired to more, especially at the end where things are wrapped up too quickly.
