Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen
Source: Catholic News Service
Fun but formulaic adolescent soap opera about an eccentric 16-year-old (Lindsay Lohan) transplanted by her single mom from New York City to suburban New Jersey where she becomes easy prey for her new high school's reigning queen of mean (Megan Fox). Directed by Sara Sugarman, the film probes the perils of pubescence with charm and warmth, touching on questions of conformity, peer approval, and maintaining one's self-identity, and at times is laced with a kids-know-better-than-parents bias, but overall imparts a positive message about dreaming boldly and believing in oneself. Thematic elements and brief, mildly crass expressions. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
