Movie Review

It's Wednesday of the March break. What has everyone been up to? I've been pretty bored, but I read a lot and watched [so far] 2 DVDs. Grown Ups and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen . I watched both twice for lack of things to do.
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen  features Lindsay Lohan as Mary Elizabeth Steppe (who is known in the movie as Lola). When the always dramatic Lola and her family move from the center of everything in New York City to the center of a cultural wasteland suburban New Jersey, she feels her life is simply not worth living! But no matter who or what gets in the way, Lola won't give up on her life's ambition: to be a star! When she learns that her favorite rock group, Sidarthur, is disbanding and is going to put on their final farewell concert in New York City, Lola pulls out all the stops to make it to the concert to meet her idoland the lead singer, Stu Wolff. However, when the last concert is sold-out, Lola plans with Ella to travel to New York and buy the tickets from scalpers. But, the girls get into trouble while helping Stu Wolf, changing their lives forever.
This movie came out in 2004, but it's still REALLY good. It shows that ANYthing is possible. I give a 3 and a half stars out of 5. The plot is a bit predictable. That's my only problem with it. Here's the trailer.

Grown Ups is a movie that came out in 2010. It is absolutely HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!! If you haven'y already watched it, I'd strongly recommend it to you. It's a comedy but rated PG for crude material including suggestive references, language and some male rear nudity and some offensive material.
Thirty years after graduating from high school, five former basketball teammates gather at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach. Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend, the five friends realize that just because they've all grown up and started families doesn't mean that they've lost that old spark. Adulthood is what you make of it, and no one at the lake house is eager to be the grown-up of the gang. Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, and Rob Schneider star in a film written by Sandler and Fred Wolf, and directed by Dennis Dugan. Maria Bello, Salma Hayek, and Maya Rudolph co-star.
I give it four stars out of five. The comedy makes up for its lack of plot. Here's the trailer.
