Have you seen this movie?

LOL (2012) Poster  Don’t laugh. Don’t judge.

This movie has been on Netflix for awhile and I always passed it. The title just seemed, ugh, dumb?

Well, for some reason, I decided to watch it.


This is not an academy award winning film, but for someone who writes for teens, I think it’s dead on.

Here’s the synopsis.

Starting a new year of high school, Lola (Miley Cyrus), (or “Lol,” as
her friends call her), works to find the right balance between family,
school, friends and romance. Broken-hearted by her ex, Lol’s world is
soon turned upside down when she is surprised to find her best friend,
Kyle (Douglas Booth), a musician in an up and coming

rock band, could
possibly be the love of her life. In her quest towards independence,
self-identity and young adulthood, Lol discovers that while Facebook
“status” is easy to change; true relationships are worth the effort.

This is a perfect example of a bad cover and a bad title. They don’t fit the story.

Here’s what I loved about the movie, Lola is a typical teen with typical boy problems. Her relationship with her mother is strained, but very authentic. I loved the interactions with each other. Demi Moore plays her mother and she doesn’t suck! 

A few other things I loved.

Douglas Booth aka Kyle

Need some more convincing?

Watch this.
