Kids say (10):

From girl-power director Martha Coolidge (The Prince and Me) and the Material Girl herself (Madonna) comes this fluffy teen comedy.

Unfortunately, the storyline, dialogue, and characters are brain-numbing. What were they thinking?! Even the music is lame, which is surprising considering the movie was produced by Madonna's Maverick Films. And between her role in Daddy Day Care and this movie, you have to wonder what Anjelica Huston was thinking. In short, skip it.
