Material Girls (2006)
Critic Consensus: Plagued by paper-thin characterizations and a hackneyed script, Material Girls fails to live up to even the minimum standards of its genre.

Critic Reviews for Material Girls
Lessons about social responsibility are submerged in a bubble bath of innocent glamour; Amy Heckerling's Clueless looks like a mordant social satire by comparison.
Under the circumstances, Anjelica Huston and Lukas Haas manage not to embarrass themselves, but only because they're pretending to be in a different movie.
The film's sole purpose is to promote, with chilling lack of irony, Hilary Duff's own brand of perfume -- oh, and there's her single as well.
Messy, patronising and tonally confused, this vanity project - timed to co-incide with Hilary Duff's perfume launch - quite frankly stinks.
Haylie and sister Hilary Duff just don't have the comedy stylings to sell this half-baked story of heiress sisters battling to save their dad's cosmetics empire from ruin.
The villain (a greedy corporate man of some sort) isn't very fleshed out, but it's hard to believe that he's any worse than the two self-serving, appearance-obsessed protagonists, with whom the film asks young girls everywhere to identify.
Audience Reviews for Material Girls
I was a tween when I watched this, so I liked it more then than I realise I do now. I wouldn't say it was a disastourous film but it wasn't one of Hilary Duff's best. It's your average chick flick although does educate you on how money isn't everything and the people in your life are much more important and worth more than money ever will be.
This film was weak all over. 1not a good plot 2 not good acting.
