WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
This is the story of a young girl coming up in a ruthless age of technology where internet, Facebook and I Phones reign supreme and if that's not enough, how's a girl supposed to win at love when her overprotective mom's always on her back. Excuse me while I go puke.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Sigh. I don't know what's worse, the fact that they made a movie called LOL once (yes, this is a remake of French film called LOL that came out in 2008 which I've heard is just as craptacular), or that they decided to breathe life into it a second time. Oh yeah, and here's the best part, Miley Cyrus is the lead. Let me guess, you've stopped reading so you can go out and buy this bad boy for yourself right? No, I didn't think so.

I get that sexting is a popular theme for both debate and fun these days and trust me, if that's what this movie was about it might have been slightly better (I'll admit that watching a dude text random nude pics of Miley Cyrus is a plot that would have my full attention), but sadly this is PG-13 territory of the fluffiest kind. I had the misfortune of reviewing Miley's other dumb love story THE LAST SONG, but at least it had a story, not a good one mind you, but a story nonetheless. This is like watching two fifteen year old chicks text each other all day and then Facebook one another all night. Her tagline is "it's nice to love someone so much it hurts". Well let me tell you, this flick is so terrible it makes kidney stones look appealing.

LOL is something that never should have seen the light of day (twice) and for the love of Christ, I have no idea what lured Demi Moore to this atrocity (then again, she is into younger dudes. Can I get a "BURN" Kelso?). This flick might, and I do stress might, win over some of the same lost youths who feel TWILIGHT is the ultimate love story of our generation, but even then it's a long shot. I can see why there was zero marketing for this by LIONSGATE, if I were them I'd want to keep my distance as well. Guys, what the hell were you thinking?
THE EXTRAS
Commentary: The director and cast hang out for the play by play which is every bit as vexing to endure as the film itself. Where's Arnold Schwarzenegger when I need him.

The Cast of LOL: Everyone on set loves Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore feels like she's watching her kids. One dude actually said this film was the coolest thing he's ever done. He should be shot.

Like Mother, Like Daughter: The cast and crew talk about the special bond between moms and their girls and yes, if I have to say one positive thing about this film it's that the chemistry between Cyrus and Moore was actually believable...and Demi Moore is still smoking hot.

Lots of Love for Lisa Azuelos: This is the part where the cast and crew lie about how much they loved the French version of the film...sure you did guys, sure you did.

Previews: There are a handful of trailers that play before the feature.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
Clearly Miley Cyrus decided to watch this film in its entirety and that's when she went temporarily insane and chopped off her hair. Thankfully I have a shaved head or I may have done the same. Watch this flick at your own risk people, you've been warned.
