Anyway, back to the movie.
Okay, I started reading the Clique when I was 12 and that was 4 years ago. Now I'm 16 and the Clique girls are still 12 in the very first movie.
Remembering back to the very first book and watching this movie is surreal. The movie is almost nothing how I pictured the book in my mind, but they do a very nice, accurate portrayal of the book.
The movie follows the basic plot line, includes many of the characters, ha very interesting fashion, actually has the IMing and State of the Union parts, and quoted many of the funny lines from the book.
Although there were parts of the book that I missed (like the whole tights trend and the Massie insights), the most obvious jump from book to movie were the main characters. Alicia wasn't busty enough, but the whole "rubbing boobs together" part took on a whole new meaning. Massie acted a little too forced sometimes. Kristen wasn't sporty enough. However, this are minute details.
I definitely recommend this to all Clique fans because while it may be very different from what we saw in our minds, it still tells the timeless tale of fitting-in and insecurities with the "loveable" characters and their lines that we know!
I watched it with my 15 year old daughter and she loved it. (she would give it 5 + stars)
Let me start by saying that although I was initially horrified by the blatant narcissism of the main characters, I realized that many adolescents are focused on themselves and the story and film just took it a whole notch up by portraying how mean-spirited and self-involved the Clique girls were. Claire, a transplant from Florida, moves into alpha girl Massie's pool house as Claire's dad has just received a great job offer from Massie's dad (both girls' dads are good friends). Massie is resentful of Claire from the get go and makes life a living hell for the new girl, just because. The other girls in Massie's clique, i.e. Dylan, Felicia, and Kristen, come together under Massie's instigation to torment and belittle Claire. The story follows Claire as she goes from the trod upon new girl to someone who tries to change her own personality to fit in with the Clique, until she comes to the realization that changing one's personality and beliefs to fit in rarely ends with positive results.
The moral of the story is a good one and the actors portraying the various roles here do a credible job for the most part. The only bad word that I caught in the film was "bitch" which is used several times to describe certain characters. Other than that, I recommend watching this with a pre-teen and young teen girl as there are some life lessons to be learned.

It was a typical tween flick, so it did not seem very original. Also, I still do not get why the main girl would want to be friends with those other girls. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
