Okay, it is not the best.
12 September 2005 | by ENCOPRESIS3See all my reviews

Well, The writing in this title is EXCELLENT for a class of 5 year olds, Why is this movie so "staged" feeling to me? The main character mattison is very unbelievable, so happy-go-lucky and happy in her own little un-perfect world.

The plot is so typical for a young pre-highschool girl audience and doesn't flow well at all. Every subject and idea in this title are spoon-fed to you as if you had no idea of life itself. I think this is the most boring movie I have seen in some time. I believe that the fact that a lot of this title was funded by the main actress who is also the writer leads to its bland taste. No studio would have ever picked this up. Matty should have mellowed her over the top acting and it would have been a bit better but the whole plot was just lame.

The continuity on the set was horrifying, i.e. check the boom box handle when the guy is outside her window playing her the song.

the "Gilmore girls" style of quick snappy conversations is really obnoxious as well.

Overall I would recommend painting your house instead of watching this title.
