There were never such devoted sisters
Jacqueline and Elizabeth Labadie play the Kelly sisters in Crowning Jules. Elizabeth is the beauty queen and Jacqueline in the title role is the high academic
achieving Jules. For reasons I can't fathom it's the beauty queen who is the
favorite of dad Kevin Farley. He has his eyes on Michigan State for his daughters
and Elizabeth might make it on beauty and cheerleading.
Jacqueline wants more, she's got her eye on Harvard and when there's a beauty
pageant in Boston the sisters make a road trip to Massachusetts from Ann Arbor.
Unfortunately they buy a broach pawned by Kristy Swanson's lunkhead stepsons, one of them Kenton Duty late of the Disney channel. That starts a
cross state pursuit of the twins.
In the meantime Jules has met her knight in shining armor. Can you do better
than a rock musician who goes to MIT? That's Derek Brandon for you. And of
course the sisters really bond in this trip.
Crowning Jules is a nice family picture. I could never quite buy Kenton Duty as a bad kid. He's silly Gunther Hessenheffer from Shake It Up or he's always a
role model type youth. Can't see him as a villain, even a comic one.
Families will enjoy this one.
