Lola feels her life is simply not worth living when she moves with her family from every single thing on the planet that she loves and plunked down in the middle of the cultural wasteland that is suburban New Jersey. How will this New York doll ever make it as a Jersey girl?
Comedy - This is a light comedy for teenage girls. While there are mild
references to alcohol use, there is otherwise not much in the way of
objectionable content for parents.
PROFANITY: None. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Some mild crashes/falls played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: References to alcohol drinking. ACTION: One foot chase/race. COMEDY: Wisecracks and slapstick; nothing off color.

USA TodayFull Review Average This junior chick flick merely reinforces superficial clichés one associates with female teens: petty fights, intense highs and lows, and self-absorption. One of the worst performances comes from Megan Fox, who plays Carla, the cruel beauty who has terrorized those less popular since kindergarten. But "Drama Queen" doesn't limit silly portraits to high-schoolers. Adults range from benign fools to easily duped idiots.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 108 moviegoer opinions. Let's begin with the films target audience of children and teen females. Children pretty much all loved it. However, teen female opinions are very mixed, which is quite unusual since teens typically rate movies quite high when they are targeted at them. Only a little better than half of the female teens truly enjoyed Confessions. About half the remaining ones thought it was an OK movie. Several didn't care much for it at all.
Adult and twentysomething females is the only other group with enough opinions to be accurate. Half of them enjoyed it very much. About one-quarter rated it "Good," which is a little low and indicates just an OK movie. The remaining twenty-five percent didn't care much for it.
I would say "Confessions" is a good movie for a mom to take her daughter to see for some mother daughter bonding, but it's not a great movie even by teen standards.
