| Hindsight irony
This is an OK teen flick and Lohan carries it decently enough on her talented shoulders. She is a movie star in the best of Hollywood traditions: multi-talented, photogenic (the Marilyn Monroe scene is striking) and underneath all that surface, a complicated personal life. The irony is not at all lost when Lohan's character, who finally gets her moments alone with the worshiped rock star, discovers that he is a drunk, says so out loud in repulsion. One wonders if a young teen boy, finding Lohan alone and inebriated in a bar booth would not make the same observation.

The saddest thing about these young, talented stars who sparkle so brightly in their youth and then set towards a trajectory that can only have them fall hard to the earth, is that it happens with such regularity and predictability. They take their talent and success for granted and, when it is lost, it usually is lost for good.

I hope Lohan finds a fan who is as honest with her and, as in this movie, as with the rock star, is touched and recovers her balance and stability and we, as audience, gain the benefits that her promise demonstrated in these bubble gum movies.
