The thing that got me in Roger Eberts review was when he pointed out that the evil, spoiled cheeleader-types in most teen movies are always blonde. Its true! Ive always thought that, and Im glad someone else noticed it too. Ive always wondered if there was a kind of "reverse racism" at work here, in addition to a lot of resentment.

I know what you mean about how it would be better to have the "curvy girl" play the evil character than just a dishrag. I agree. But now that Ive seen the Hilary Duff movie, I LOVE having character the audience hates being skinny & diet-obsessed, and the heroine being curvy! And even though Hilary is not actually plus, at least her figure looks soft and natural and - human! Not like most Hollywood actresses.
