Movie Review by Zara
May 23rd, 2009

I'm surprised that Hilary Duff is doing better in film and otherwise than her sister Haylie, even when I overlook the fact that Hilary is slightly better looking than her older sister. What I heard of the younger Duff getting into commercials is that the girls' mother would take Haylie to auditions and Hilary would come along and the producers would decide to take the younger sister instead.

I say all of this because while MATERIAL GIRLS is still a stupid fluff piece of film made for the "family friendly" audiences who wouldn't know a good movie if it bit them on the eyeballs at this point, Haylie Duff was still the watchable thing in the movie. She's got a softer approach than her sister and if she suffers from anything, it's having to play it soft so that her sister can take the spotlight and she can at least have a job.

I never know whether or not to enjoy when a movie like this gets people like Angelica Houston and Brent Spiner in it. Sure, I like them in it because they're good people who turn in good performances. But then there's the accompanied problem with it being good people in a trashy movie. Well, not really trashy because it wasn't good enough to be a bad movie to hate on. It's just meh.
