Nicole and Jacquie were Best Friends Forever. They shared everything, including the same birthday, which they always celebrated together. This year, however, after a huge falling out the two teens compete against each other to see who can have the best and most extravagant sweet 16 birthday party. Based on the highly popular TV show My Super Sweet 16.
Not the MTV television series My Super Sweet 16
, Super Sweet 16 the Movie
is a story of two good friends' conflict over planning the perfect sweet 16 party. Best friends since childhood, Jacquie (Regine Nehy) and Sarah (Amanda 'AJ' Michalka) are immersed in planning an extravagant, combined sweet 16 party that will wow their friends and benefit a local charity. When Jacquie transfers from a private boarding school to the local high school, she is immediately befriended by fashion-obsessed Taylor Tiara (Alyson 'Aly' Michalka) who is about as different from the student activist Sarah as she could possibly be. Taylor joins the party planning process, plotting to drive the two friends apart, and soon Jacquie and Sarah have become enemies scheming to out-do one another with separate, outrageously extravagant sweet 16 parties. Can fellow student and documentary-maker Shannon (Brendan Miller) help reconcile the old friends or will their sweet 16 mark the end of a life-long friendship? Attitude, extravagance, obsession, and downright arrogance are the primary qualities of this film's main characters, but unlike the television series, there is a glimmer of hope that perhaps charitableness and friendship might just prove more important than executing the biggest, most perfect sweet 16 party ever. Look for hot performances by Hellogoodbye and Pretty Ricky and bonus features including deleted scenes and the best of the television series My Super Sweet 16
