THE LIZZIE MCGUIRE MOVIE (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Stars ììì

The Lizzie McGuire Movie—teen entertainment—compliments and carries forward the TV series’ storylines and character development for both Lizzie McGuire (Hilary Duff) and her evil-genius brother, Matthew “Matt” McGuire (Jake Thomas). The movie can be appreciated for its comical and straight-forward story lines. The ending music well displays Hilary Duff’s singing talents and places her on par with Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. It’s a clean, decent watch for young teens.

Storyline

Lizzie McGuire and her graduating junior high school class travel to Rome, Italy for an educational tour. She meets an Italian junior pop star, Paolo Valisari (Yani Gellman), falls in love, and travels Rome largely un-chaperoned while her friend, David ‘Gordo’ Gordon (Adam Lamberg), covers for her absences from the scheduled school tours. Unfortunately, the Italian junior pop star is using Lizzie McGuire to ruin another junior pop star’s reputation. All ends well in this teen-age flick.

Additional Thanks

Really Good Work for Director Jim Fall. Thank you to Executive Producers Terri Minski and David Roessell for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Joanne “Jo” McGuire (Hallie Todd), Samuel “Sam” McGuire (Robert Carradine), Katherine “Kate” Sanders (Ashlie Brillault), Ethan Craft (Clayton Snyder), Ms. Angela Ungermeyer (Alex Borstein), Sergei (Brendan Kelly), and Melina Bianco (Carly Schroeder).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Lizzie McGuire fans are going to be more than satisfied with the film.
