User Review

Average movie . Wouldn't watch it twice !!!

Rating: 5/10

Although it was nice to see Lindsay lohan again in a movie ( i like her
very much ) 🙂 : the story is kinda lame and the acting is pretty bad .
Still a few laugh but overall I'm disappoint . it looked very good from
the trailer .

download the screener or rent if you like lohan but don't buy it .

This movie wont 'bring Lindsay lohan career to the top ' i wouldn't
have see a theatrical release . Straight to DVD is what it deserve IMO

very average .. and the acting is pretty bad ( except Lindsay ) still
better than Hottie or nottie or other Paris Hilton flick .

Its rate 4.1 right now … it deserve it IMO . maybe a 5 max .

Nowhere near as good as Mean girl or Just my luck . This is not a movie
you want to watch twice .
