What's the story?

Accident-prone but endearing Lizzie McGuire has charmed countless children (especially girls) and their parents (particularly mothers) on television and the big screen. Audiences who love the television show and movie will also enjoy this soundtrack album, where Hilary Duff as Lizzie shows she can sing almost as well as she can trip up the stairs of her middle-school graduation stage.

Is it any good?

Singing with enthusiasm and polish, Duff-as-Lizzie impresses in the uptempo "Why Not," and croons like a veteran chanteuse in the ballad "What Dreams Are Made Of." Other artists perform equally well, most notably Jump5 in the classic "Shining Star," Atomic Kitten's version of "The Tide Is High (Get The Feeling)," and the incomparable Dean Martin in "On An Evening in Roma."
