Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, Adam Garcia, Carol Kane; Director: Sara Sugarman; Author: Gail Parent; Release Date Wide: 02/20/2004; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 86; MPAA Rating: PG; Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures

Lindsay Lohan could be a one-gal ”Breakfast Club.” Embellishing the standard story line of teens in search of a really rockin’ party, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen introduces a hyperbolic parade of fantasy personas to the redhead’s resume – disaffected glam-rock groupie, Gandhi wannabe, ghetto-fab ”My Fair Lady,” and ”Mean Girls”-marred Mary among them. Passing off adolescent angst as bubblegum pop art, Gail Parent’s blithely bittersweet script prefaces the sharper teenybopper tirade of ”Mean Girls.” Yet while Tina Fey’s caustic collage of skits held Lohan riding shotgun, ”Confessions” proves that this drama queen is perfectly comfortable driving her own vehicle.

EXTRAS An on-set featurette shows a jitterbugging Lohan, but the real draw is director Sara Sugarman’s ever-changing faux-‘hawk hairdo.
