ABC Family Movie - Teen Spirit

MOVIE REVIEW

Teen Spirit
Network: ABC Family

Original Air Date: August 7, 2011

PLEASE NOTE: Please read my WARNING regarding this Movie, below, under Movie Review.




CAST:

Cassie Scerbo ... Amber Pollock
Lindsey Shaw ... Lisa Sommers
Tim Gunn



PLOT:

from ABC Family press release:

Amber Pollock (Cassie Scerbo) is the queen bee of Patrick Boone High School, and the only thing missing to her reign is the Prom Queen title. Having worked for years towards obtaining the crown and most popular girl status, Amber lets nothing and no one stand in her way. That bad behavior comes back to literally haunt her when a freak accident at Prom ends Amber's short, nearly-perfect life and, facing an unpleasant after-life, she is given the task that could save her soul - to get the school's least popular girl to be voted Prom Queen. Amber is sure her future is sunk when she learns her charge is none other than Lisa Sommers (Lindsey Shaw), a shy girl who makes claymation films with her three best friends and whose fashion sense is not up to Amber's standards. As for Lisa herself, the last thing she wants is to be Prom Queen, but when Amber offers to help her get the attention of her crush, Nick, Lisa gives Amber the benefit of the doubt. Will a head-to-toe makeover and some confidence-building advice really be able to turn a shy and awkward teen into a high school social power player? Only Heaven knows!



Movie Review:

I haven't seen this movie, but it looks pretty much like any another Mean Girls copycat sort of movie. I'm sorry, but... Been there, seen that.

And, from reading the plot description (above) the movie sounds like it will be sac religious. As a Christian, I believe accepting Jesus into our hearts, and asking forgiveness for our sins, is the way we all will enter into heaven.

In this movie, a young girl named Amber dies, and in order to save her soul, she must help a non-popular girl become prom queen. Oh, that sounds like a truly noble goal. NOT!

I personally will not be watching this movie. Nor will I ever recommend it. I am including it on my site - merely as a caution & warning for TV viewers.

This movie sends the completely wrong message to teenagers regarding the preciousness of life, reality, and spirituality. 

See or Skip:

I must recommend skipping this one.

  4. Oh all of you's grow up! It's just a movie. If you raised your kids right with good sense and proper values then you have nothing to worry about but the fun in sitting down to a movie you and your family can enjoy together. Your kids probably have better sense and judgement than you.
