"You can change your status, but not your heart."

Starting a new year of high school, Lola, (or "Lol," as her friends call her), works to find the right balance between family, school, friends and romance. Broken-hearted by her ex, Lol's world is soon turned upside down when she is surprised to find her best friend, Kyle, a musician in an up and coming rock band, could possibly be the love of her life. In her quest towards independence, self-identity and young adulthood, Lol discovers that while Facebook "status" is easy to change; true relationships are worth the effort.


I was in doubt whether to review this movie or not. Why? Simple, this movie is far too ugly to be reviewed. But, I decided I want to mock it all the way I want, so yes, I'm reviewing it. First thought is -of course Miley Cyrus; this movie really suits her, according to her behavior lately. First thing first, this movie is a remake of a French movie La Boom which was a hit back then in 2008. And what can I say, remake oftenly goes worse. But this one is an exception, because LOL is definitely far too worse.

I constantly yelled in my head, saying "AND THE POINT IS?!!" This movie offers absolutely nothing than spoiled teenagers' life, let's count; sex, drinking, harassing others, fat lies, rude words, over-the-top lifestyle. Let's just say, this movie is a HO. One thing bothers me the most; what is up with Lola and her mom relationship?! So unrealistic; what kind of mother does nothing but upset when she finds out about her daughter having sex with some guy she never actually met?! Plus, the facebook-twitter-chatting elements, NOT HELPING. All I can say is bunch of damaged teenagers my mom will gladly slap. Teenagers who are showing off too much, yelling, "I'm a free bitch! I don't give a fuck of what elders say!" Not to mention, the plot holes (which are waaaay too much), and the fact that the story is predictable, moreover pointless.

Let me tell you about the characters; a bunch of actresses playing around with cigarettes and lips. Don't expect any character's development. All you get is the "Yes, I'm pretending to be a nice actor by being such a ho." Miley Cyrus? She's trying too hard to look like she wasn't trying too hard, get the point? And hell yea, that Lola role suits her perfectly; Lola should be her alter-ego, not that sweet-talented and heart-warming Hannah Montana. She partically ruins every piece of her as a preteens' role model.
