LOL

If I was in charge of the Razzie Awards this year, the film you see above would sweep everything up. LOL stars Miley Cyrus as Lola, an ignorant teenager who struggles to maintain her relationships with boys and her mother (Demi Moore) while dealing with everyday life of being a social media junkie teenager. This film is actually a remake of a French film with the same name, which was also written and directed by the same person who directed this, Lisa Azuelos, who has managed to, in my opinion, direct the worst film of 2012.  

The problem with LOL is that it’s obviously written by a woman who hasn’t grown up with social media such as Facebook and YouTube yet believes she can make a film that teenagers can find interesting. The social media usage in this film is so gimmicky and poorly implemented that rather than getting teenagers engaged in the story it will leave them saying “that’s not how we use that!” The story’s not that much better as well, having an extremely confusing plot, unrealistic situations and clichéd, bare bones characters that you’ll find very hard to even care about as they’re so dumb. The film can also be disturbingly weird as well. For example, a teenage daughter willingly gets naked in front of her mother, who also is naked in the bath with her younger sister; as far as I know that’s not normal for a teenager, and neither is shoving a webcam down a raw chicken in order to trick someone on the internet. The whole thing is just too weird. 

The chemistry between characters is nearly non-existent and the fighting between Lola and her mother, which is meant to be light-hearted and reflective of real fights between teenagers and parents, elicits no emotional feelings whatsoever. The only positive I can say about LOL is that the conversion to Blu-Ray has been done well, however the audio levels can be off on occasions. No special features are included on either the Blu-Ray or DVD release, so what you get is a visually decent yet shocking film. LOL wants you to “laugh out loud” as you watch it, but you might find yourself COL, “crying out loud”.
