Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (2004)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Jersey Girl

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Lindsay Lohan stars as a spoiled teen whose life falls apart when she moves from Manhattan to New Jersey. But she still manages to make a new friend and land the lead role in the school play. Her biggest challenge comes when her favorite pop band breaks up and gives a final farewell concert in the city. Will she meet her idol at the after party and still show up the most popular girl in school? It's not too hard to guess, but director Sara Sugarman keeps this colorful and lively movie on its toes, especially with the help of little fantasy asides and interludes. With her freckles, Lohan has a kind of down-to-earth charm that makes her more interesting than Hilary Duff, but she still hasn't demonstrated the God-given talent and charisma of her other Disney cohort, Anne Hathaway (Ella Enchanted). Carol Kane appears in a dowdy wig and glasses as the director of the play (The "Pygmalion" redux, "Eliza Rocks!") and Glenne Headly lends grace to Lohan's mom.

DVD Details: Disney's new DVD comes with a deleted scene, a music video for Lohan's "That Girl," a behind-the-scenes featurette and an audio commentary by the director, writer and producers.
