Title: LOL Director: Lisa Azuelos Year: 2012 Run time: 1hr 37m
I can’t actually remember why we opted to watch this one. Just a bit of mindless teenage angst, I suppose. Plus it’s always fun to see what Hannah Montana is up to.
2:24 - If we were meant to follow all those people introduced in quick succession… I failed. 4:57 - I like that she always carries a marker with her, just in case of emergency graffiti situations, I guess. 6:38 - I like that they iMessage each other, even though they’re just in the next room. 10:08 - I don’t know, there really isn’t a sexy way to eat an apple, is there? 14:42 - You have to pay good money for therapists not to talk to you. 18:09 - That doesn’t seem like a secure place to hide a guitar… it might get stolen! 23:43 - It must be quite weird to be the one guy at a dinner party of ladies. 28:01 - The headteacher is fun. “Now you guys are harrassing me.” 30:25 - I like that she stickered up her Mac, but left a good space for the Apple. Don’t want to miss out on the product placement. 34:01 - Tough to have brother and sister bedrooms connected like that. The pranks! 35:34 - I wouldn’t call that sneaking around, I’d call that getting into his car in broad daylight in front of the house. 40:01 - “Well, you know, the grandmother was there.” 40:51 - Being grounded is fine when you have messaging! 45:14 - She has a Muse t-shirt on. 51:17 - They unfriended on Facebook. It must be serious. 53:14 - “I think you think too much.” 53:57 - He smashed the guitar! Unforgivable. 57:53 - That’s the boy’s bathroom? Why do the girls keep going in there? 1:02:10 - Epic school trip to go on a plane! 1:03:15 - That is definitely not Paris. 1:09:35 - I didn’t know you weren’t allowed to play Stairway to Heaven in music shops. 1:12:49 - They do say Paris is the city of love, even if they’re 20 minutes away. 1:14:51 - They all seem to have Macs and just message all the time. Not so creative! 1:18:00 - Always a downside to keeping a diary. Best not to do it if you’re in a film. 1:20:39 - You can’t really get away with saying you “accidentally” read it either. 1:25:55 - I like they made up via email. 1:28:05 - They do seem to be quite good, considering they are a high school garage band. 1:28:46 - The name of the band is No Shampoo, though.
Mostly, this was quite rubbish. I know that teenage drama is always going to be a bit less full on that some of the more hard hitting stuff films like to get away, with but jeez louise, I have never known people make bigger mountains out of smaller molehills! The only bit that made any sense at all was when the diary was read and she moved out. The rest was all just a bit silly.
