I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.
Great Film overall
Excellent, Without a doubt!!
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
This movie is downright terrible. Usually I like cheesy movies because they are so stupid and pointless that you can laugh at them, but this movie is just all-around awful. There are many reasons that this movie is bad, so I'll list them here: 1. The acting is very questionable; it's supposed to feature a good, talented cast, but the actors may as well be robots, as they're not putting any expression into their lines whatsoever. 2. All of the jokes that are supposed to be funny are just stupid. 3. The main character, Julie, is a complete selfish, self-centered snob- she complains to her parents about not getting a lock on her bedroom door, and that her mom treats her like a baby, and that her crush doesn't even know she exists-it makes you want to slap her across the face. 4. The film basically encourages bad behavior, what with the scavenger hunt and all, and the parents' reaction to Julie's sneaking out of the house is far too lenient-they don't punish her, but instead reward her with a lock for her bedroom door-if I did that, I'd be grounded for life!5. The fake emotion in this movie is overwhelming-the writers tried to throw in some emotional scenes that didn't fit to the script or the theme of the movie in the first place, and all of the actors failed to deliver them.6. The ending is so predictable it's ridiculous-my five-year-old sister could see it coming! Julie ends up with the guy of her dreams and her and her friends win the scavenger hunt and are skyrocketed into popularity-news flash: life isn't perfect!7. The movie is really shallow and pretty much implies that being popular and wearing designer clothes and dating the cutest boy in school are the most important things in life-it sends a bad message to young viewers.8. Lastly, the guy that the chubby character (Yancy) winds up with at the end of the film says that he has a one-night gig working at the bar/club the girls sneak into-for this to be true, he'd have to be at least 21 years of age. Which means that a 21-year-old man has fallen in love with a 14-year-old girl. Isn't there something wrong with that picture?This movie is awful for all of the reasons mentioned above, and is totally not worth the hour and half of your time that it takes up-take my advice: don't watch it.
I was bored one night and decided to go ahead and see what Sleepover was, it was on TV, figured it might not be so bad. Well, while it did live up to my expectations, I have to say for teens, this movie wasn't so bad. First off, the first time I saw Steve Carrel on the screen, I was like "Is that Steve... no, it can't be. Why would he be in a movie like this?", and it was him. But I guess we all have to start somewhere. He was an interesting person in the cast, but it's all good. Even though I didn't really like the film, it was worth the watch, I thought it was a good idea for the "tweens" as most people are calling this genre. I suppose who doesn't dream of a sleepover like this one? I mean it had everything, the girls had a date with their teacher(sounds sick, I know), messed with authority and got away with it, and got the guys.Julie Corky is throwing a big sleepover for her friends, it's the summer before they enter high school, so they are trying to make a new name for themselves as the click crowd. After a bad night, the click leader, Staci wants to have fun and challenges Julie and her friends to a scavenger hunt where they have to do certain things throughout the night and then whoever wins will get the hot spot in high school and have lunch next to the fountain. The girls are in for one wild night and end up with the greater reward: friendships that will last a lifetime.I have to admit that Sleepover has a few cute laughs, I wouldn't deny that some moments are funny. While the movie is still very overly cheesy, it's all good for the audience it was aimed at. It was just so cute how Julie found her "true love" in the movie, lol, I'm sure most teens find their true loves like that in real life. So other than that unrealistic situation, this was just like a J-14 magazine, I feel so preppy and bubbly, I have to watch a serious movie now I think. For the teens, this is the perfect movie for them, for adults, well, begin to feel old, because if this is the way kids act now a days, then I'm glad I'm done with them.5/10
I've read many of the reviews that everyone's posted for this movie, and I have to say that I do agree with a good number of them. I also found the movie to be very funny.Though the movie captures its target audience the acting was not that good. I was surprised to hear spice playing at the sleepover.It's nice to see that they are still remembered.I have to say that the movie was predictable and it was obvious that julies gang is going to win. As compared to this movie i found Mean Girls to be much better. It is more entertaining and the movie makes sense and is believable while at some point this movie became unbelievable like the part where she is riding on skates and trying to get home before her father finds out that she is gone
Hmm.......I didn't think the movie was THAT bad. Just a little complicated, that's all. I think the plot was pathetic. You have to go on this scavenger hunt just for a lunch spot? How does where you eat lunch affect your future? Is sitting in a 'popular' spot going to help you get into the best college? Or is it going to prevent you from doing drugs and screwing up your life? It DOESN'T MATTER. 10 years from then, it's not going to matter. So what if you don't have the perfect social life or whatever? It'll be useless. Period. And, how can you possibly do those tasks? Dress a mannequin in Old Navy? Won't you get arrested for that? Yeah, I think this movie is just......unrealistic. Movies that ARE realistic just make sense more. When I watched the movie, I got a headache. It was too much. But, I did think it had humor, and fried twinkies sound interesting. (I think I might try that, lol) As I said, the movie is not that bad, and it's nice for young teens =)
