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."

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about why artists like Hilary Duff and Miley Cyrus are so popular with young girls.

AWESOME CD! The songs made me want to sing with them the whole time!

The Lizzie Mcguire movie soundtrack was a great way to spend my afternoon listening to. The songs made me want to sing, dance and move. It has one of the songs that says "You can do anything" type of feeling! THIS IS A GREAT CD!
