Lisa: Advantage: Lohan

Normally, pop-princess vehicles and movies heavy on the singing and/or dancing teens are prime choices for girls' night. However, I fear that last night we went too far. By this I mean that we checked out Hilary Duff's Raise Your Voice from the library.

Keep in mind that our standards are low. The critically-acclaimed Bring It On (starring the aptly-anagrammed Dr. Sunken Tits) has happily shared TV time with One Wonky Eye's straight-to-DVD Drive Me Crazy. Even so, Raise Your Voice was by far the worst of its genre I have ever seen.

  • The artistic talent was much more effectively faked in Save the Last Dance.
  • The love interest in Center Stage was actually less gay.
  • Believe it or not, the singing was better and the main character (BRITNEY SPEARS) more appealing in Crossroads.
  • Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, with Lindsay Lohan, was less heavy-handed with the moral lessons.
  • It made Lohan's Mean Girls look like Oscar material. Seriously. Well, that is a good show.

    And what was John Corbett doing there, with a 10-pack-a-day voice, plaid flannel shirt/leather vest with side lacing/leather pants combo, and frizzy Kenny G. ringlets? John, honey, if you really don't have anything more interesting to do, come home with me. I think we can figure something out and get that hair problem taken care of at the same time.

    Edited to add: Even the Olsen twins' New York Minute was more enjoyable. Plus, it had Jared Padalecki doing the robot. Disclaimer: I am not recommending New York Minute.

    Now you understand why I was on the phone with my boyfriend for half of the movie. It was so predictable I left and missed the end and still knew what had happened... we really did a number with that one. I want that hour of my life back.. hehe but it was fun
