Product Description

Inspired by a true story, The Bling Ring centers around Zack (Austin Butler, Switched at Birth), a shy, awkward middle-class boy searching to be accepted by his high school classmates. When he meets Natalie (Yin Chang, Gossip Girl), a seemingly nice girl but in actuality a bit more nefarious than one would think, the promise of popularity and friendship soon becomes a reality when they begin 'shopping' in the closets of the rich and famous. Empowered by the thrill of not getting caught and under the impression the stolen goods will make them popular, Zack, Natalie and a few other friends begin breaking into the homes of a number of major celebrities, robbing them of millions of dollars in clothes, shoes and jewelry. As their crimes begin to attract the attention of the media, the group succeeds in becoming the envy of their peers. Meanwhile, Zack's mother, Iris (Jennifer Grey, Dirty Dancing), happy to see that her son has finally made friends, is blissfully unaware of his crime spree until it begins to attract the wrong kind of attention.

I thought this was the movie with emma watson in it, but I watched the whole thing even when I realized it was a different version of the bling ring. Lifetime gets a bad rap sometimes, but this movie is excellent. Very good acting.

Another story from the Lifetime Network "ripped from the headlines" vault, "The Bling Ring" certainly has a more youthful appeal than many of the channel's movies. Although mildly enjoyable and entertaining, I'm not exactly sure what (if anything) we're meant to take away from the viewing experience. Maybe that if you only rob for fun, you really aren't all bad? Maybe not, but that comes close to describing the movie's vibe. The film is a loose fictionalization of a real case where the homes of celebrities were burgled by a band of high school students. And by celebrities--we're talking, for the most part, the Paris Hilton variety. So perhaps the robberies were justified AND victimless. But I jest. The kids were fans of their targets and they made off mostly with clothes and other personal items that had resale and collectable value to other fans (as opposed to artwork, electronics, etc..). It was an interesting case in real life. Of course, this being a Lifetime movie, we only get a superficial view of how anything was done. Breaking into high end homes with security systems has never seemed so easy!

Austin Butler plays a student at a remedial school who suffers from an anxiety disorder. Upon meeting a wildly popular classmate (Yin Chang), the two form a tentative friendship based on the fact that Butler's father works in a studio payroll department and has some insider scoop. Before you know it, the two are shoplifting some fancy outfits, sneaking into exclusive bars, and burglarizing homes. Kids these days! Of course, word gets out and several friends join this club with every excursion being a big party. Although this cures Butler's anxiety and makes him feel like a celebrity, you know he's really a good kid. He's just mixed up, poor guy.

I never read the Vanity Fair article about the Bling Ring or caught any of the PR, so I came to this version and the 2013 DVD of Sophia Coppola's film fresh. I have to say the Lifetime version of The Bling Ring is funnier, sexier, campier, and overall much more enjoyable. The Coppola take is obviously more expensively produced, but there's overkill: way too many shots of shiny stuff being ogled and stolen. Both versions do highlight the sociopathic narcissism of these thieving, empty-headed kids and the cluelessness of their parents, but the Lifetime movie surprisingly has more tension and doesn't drag the way Coppola's version does. Its tone is just right, and there's no attempt to seduce you with surfaces.

Obviously those who would consider watching this aren't looking for Shakespeare. If your guilty pleasure is a good Lifetime movie event you will be happy with this. If you are looking for accuracy in the actual events of the Bling Ring you will be a little disappointed. Lifetime has taken some artistic liberties here and has changed up the actual events a bit. In a nutshell this is fun to watch if you are looking for some mindless easy entertainment.

At the center of one of Hollywood's most notorious burglary rings in 2009, was a group of average, middle-class teens from a quiet suburb. This is the story of how Nick, a shy, awkward boy, lured by the promise of popularity & acceptance, found himself following his glamorous, charismatic best friend Rachel into breaking into celebrities houses and robbing them of millions in clothes and jewelry.
