At first I had made the choice not to watch this movie because of the bad publicity it gave to Miley Cyrus, but after seeing the movie everywhere in the store, I decided to watch it and judge for myself. And I gotta say, I'm impressed.
The film tells the story of Lola Williams, a girl who lives with her divorced mother Anne. Lola and Anne do not have easy lives, with both having to deal with typical mother-daughter issues, such as sex, drugs, Internet and romance. After undergoing a bad breakup with her boyfried Chad, Lola finds solace in the arms of Kyle. For her part, Anne has been trying to get over her divorce by dating James, a narcotics detective.
Outside Lola and Anne's perspectives, there is also Kyle (Lola's new boyfriend), Emily (Lola's best friend) and Ashley (Lola's friend/rival). They all have their issues to deal with, and they all must solve them.
I admit some of the storylines were badly-handled. To be honest, I laughed at some of the serious parts. But for the most part, I enjoyed the story. The characters were very endearing and the best part is that there are no villains and the movie operates in a gray and gray morality. Every party have their sympathetic and unsympathetic sides. The closest thing the movie has to a bad guy is Kyle's father, and even he has an understandable reason to be strict with Kyle. Do I even need to say that father and son make up at the end?
Through at it all, LOL is an enjoyable, albeit quirky, movie. I definitely recommend it.
