Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Sara Sugarman (2004)

PG Certificate


Our Score
This bright comedy is another example of the type of high-school film where nothing but rock 'n' roll and romance seem to be on the syllabus. Lindsay Lohan plays popular New York teenager Lola Cep, who is transferred to a suburban New Jersey school where the bitchy Carla (Megan Fox) rules the roost. Instant rivals, the pair set out to snatch the lead role in a musical version of Pygmalion and light up the life of rock star Adam Garcia. Director Sara Sugarman uses candyfloss colours and some animation to give proceedings a little extra sparkle, which helps when the film, on occasion, takes itself too seriously. This belongs very much to the teen wish-fulfilment genre, but Lohan emerges with real credit for her performance, while veteran actress Carol Kane lends wonderfully eccentric support as a fluttery drama teacher.


A New York teenager moves with her parents to a small town, where she quickly gets drawn into a bitter conflict with a local girl - until auditions for a musical give her the chance to outshine her rival. Meanwhile, she faces the challenge of working out how to get back to the big city for her favourite band's farewell concert. Drama, starring Lindsay Lohan, Adam Garcia, Glenne Headly and Alison Pill.
