Actuakers One of my all time favorites.
Moustroll Good movie but grossly overrated
Afouotos Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.
Juana what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
diandraferreira I absolutely loved this movie, it was an awesome movie coming from a 23 year old! I do recommend! So upset I can't find on DVD as they took it off Netflix!
jellycatty I love disney but this was an awful film with awful acting (thank goodness they've gotten better since). it was cheesy in a bad way. i honestly don't know why i watched it all the way to the end
hannahwilh I absolutely loved this pointless, trashy waste of my time. No, I'm sorry, I can't even be sarcastic. All I can say is the best part of the movie was when a nameless character yawns at the beginning of a scene. It's not even funny that I'm not joking. The three acts had little to no correlation at all, and the storyline was so shallow and predictable that I think my brain cells started dying. Yeah, this movie was a big "yay for friendship, let's make this into a life lesson" thing, but I think it would have been much better if there was at least some substance to it. Act I- Cliché boy and dog, nothing can ever come between us except "super hot" girl who just wants to be science partners. Her evil plan to use the boy to get an A is revealed through some very loud whispers within earshot of said boy and dog, but only dog hears. Girl is rude to dog and boy doesn't notice (???). Fast forward through some uninteresting plot. End of act, science project that boy did by himself is ruined and mean girl runs away. Act II- Much "eepppp"ing. So competitive. Such friendship. Everything resolved in end. Act III- Two girls are identical twins, and yet later on revealed that actually they aren't related, they just happen to look exactly the same. And you'll never guess what they do-they switch places!!! Never saw that coming! And after a day in each others' lives, they want to switch back! But then they don't (???). At the end, the high school relationship is resolved because the boy didn't care that he was being lied to, the conceited jerk gets dumped, the uptight parents each tacos, the girl gets her forbidden puppy, and everyone suddenly appears for a dance party. If Disney-and any other corporations that appeals to the young people in society- really want to impact children, they can. But not by making these mind-numbing movies that teach "friendship is important" (not saying it isn't). How about a movie that teaches real life lessons, like how to be a decent person and treat people with respect, or how it is more important to succeed in high school than it is to have a boyfriend and be popular (with someone other than a rich, white suburban girl as the protagonist)?Or not.
bkoganbing Shake It Up Stars Belle Thorne and Zendaya and Stefanie Scott of ANT Farm star in this latest Disney Studio teen offering Frenemies. It's a tribute to today texting culture. And it's a trilogy.Act I is your boy and dog story with Nick Robinson as a science geek and his best friend, his dog Murray who is real intuitive and smarter than a lot of people. Also he's a good judge of character as he spots how shallow teen queen Scott is and the girl for him is Mary Mouser. After all anyone who is an animal lover has got plenty going for them.Taking center stage in Act II are bloggers Belle Thorne and Zendaya who go to school with Robinson, Scott, and Mouser and have recorded their story for posterity. The two best girl buds are put to an acid test when they compete for a position with Jessalyn Wanlim's magazine and her character is a light version of Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. Will friendship trump ambition? This is a Disney Studio production so you know the answer.The third Act is a female version of The Prince And The Pauper as Mary Mouser meets her rich teen princess look alike and both decide they'd like to live the other's life and do for a week. The consequences aren't quite like the Mark Twain story where the fate of a kingdom was in the balance. Still with a high school musical type finale it all ends on a high note.Not a bad film, I liked the first story best, but then again I'm a cat lover and no one comes between him and me.
