Look on the bright side: They're not a bunch of party-hearty ho's like Lindsey Lohan (or if they are, at least we don't have to read about it in the tabliods)!!!

Party-hearty ho's or not, the idea that Hilary Duff is now "passing the baton of stardom" to a sibling is truly scary. I have yet to see any evidence of the supposed talent or charm that Hilary possesses which would justify her being so famous. It's not that she's evil, just that she's ordinary. Like one of those hideous Bratz dolls come to life -- And the idea of there now being TWO of them...OMG!!

Neither Hilary Duff nor Lindsay Lohan can hold a candle to the queen of no talent teens, Mrs. Kevin Federline, aka Britney.

At least Lohan has made one or two okay movies ("Freaky Friday") and Duff is basically a harmless, though admitedly talent-free, teen idol. Britney, on the other hand, is a role more for ignorant-slatterns-in-training everywhere!

You guys wanna know something really sad? This movie looks a complete rip off of a Disney Channel movie called http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0489007/ - "Cow Belles" with the Michalka sisters that aired 6 months ago. I guess the Duff sisters figure if Alyson and Amanda could do it, Hilary and Haylie could carbon copy it, and maybe boost Hillary's flat, lackluster career (and Haylie's non existent one!).

Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, the "concept" of this movie dates all the way back to at least the Screwball Comedy era of the 1930s (and possibly to silent movies): The rich girl suddenly left poor who learns life lessons by facing harsh realities of everyday existence. It also sounds like yet another knock off of the Paris Hilton/Nicole Ritchie reality series THE SIMPLE LIFE...

The Truly sad story in this is that Haylie is an older sister to Hilary, and has been in the entertainment industry longer. But Haylie has never caught on as either an actress or a pop star like Hillary did!

Response from Head RAZZberry: So what you're saying is, however little talent Hilary may have...Haylie has EVEN LESS?!?!?

More or less...for some reason, Hilary had something that producers, directors, and audiences liked in the areas that I mentioned in my previous post (Now I am not saying these people were extremely great judges of talent, but...) and Haylie did not seem to strike with the just mentioned groups.

The reason I know as much as I do about the Duff Sisters (and you being a parent I am sure know this as well) is from watching interviews on the Disney Channel that I was (am) forced to watch because of my kids (and my wife, who is a big kid at heart as well).

I guess a better way of putting it is that  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0240381/ - Hilary  has had way more exposure in the limelight, and http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0240380/ - Haylie  has mainly done more supporting and background work (especially in stuff involving her sister Hilary).

So this movie may be trying to serve a two-fold purpose for the Duff Sisters (What a name, The Duff Sisters)...

1) Get Hilary's movie career out of the stagnant state it has been in for the last 2-3 years.

2) Jump starting Haylie's into having a career.

I do not foresee this flick doing the trick, however. But then again, I thought "Step Up" would fall on it's face right next to "ZOOM" last weekend!

I thought about the Paris Hilton/Nicole Ritchie reality series THE SIMPLE LIFE just after posting my original commentary when I was thinking "Say...I betcha Disney lifted the idea for Cow Belles originally from The Simple Life". I did not know however on the original roots of the whole concept until you posted it, Thanks!

NO argument with me there JoBlo...!

Well this film is showing all the signs for its road to possible RAZZIE Glory; It is only playing in about 1500 theaters and so far is not being screened for critics. Is Anybody really surprised??

I just checked http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0433412/ - The IMDb Page for MATERIALS GIRLS, and saw that three-time Oscar nominee http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001378/awards - Angelica Huston is in it, playing someone named "Fabiella."  Talk about your Academy Award winners falling on hard times!! 

Response from Head RAZZberry:  Oops! Guess I forgot to mention Angelica in my intial Posting on this film. Of course, her being in this means she can follow in the ILL-lustrious footsteps of Halle Berry and Kim Basinger and turn Oscar gold into a chance at RAZZIE spray-paint!

You should also know, HeadRAZZ, that this is a family film. We can be able to make sure this will be added to the Worst Family Entertainment category. I totally like this category better than last year's one, Most Tiresome Tabloid Target, since it never had anything to do with movies.

Here's a sample of what critics think:

"Material Girls" Review

"The Duffs are worse on screen than the Olsen sisters...To say that the movie is one of the worst abominations ever committed to film might be going a bit far, but it certainly doesn't bode well for either Duff sister if this is the best script coming their way...I never wondered anything except how Hilary Duff might salvage her dwindling career after a number of successive flops."--ComingSoon.com

Rating 2/10

"Shoddy `Material' sends Duff duo straight into the dumpster"

"Sorry, Huston, Haas, Spiner and Prince: Whatever sordid shenanigans might have been captured on that alleged DVD could not possibly be as humiliating as having to list ``Material Girls'' as a ``credit'' on your resume...[the Duff sisters'] musical efforts turn out to be far more tolerable than their acting."--mlive.com

This is the sort of movie that makes me glad I am now over 25, and cannot possibly be considered part of this film's target audience anymore --although, in recent years, the solution to the problem of the audience growing up, and less kids being born, has been to infantilise older and older potential spectators, or to market teenage movies as *blech* chick-flicks or as "guilty pleasures" or to make older people feel like they would be "losing touch" (whatever that means) if they do not watch them. I too think everyone involved in the making of this movie should be made to suffer.

This is so obviously a calculated (but misguided!) attempt at making money by exploiting the same hunger for spoiled heiresses' "riches-to-rags" stories that was re-fostered in the public by The Simple Life... and at launching the career of Duff the Elder (sorry...couldn't remember how her name is spelled!). Teens everywhere should join up and revolt against this rubbish!

How about the Pointer Sisters?  Why should I even be asking this because it's a no brainer.  In the world of family films, I'd rather spend 100 minutes watching Bob and Doug McKenzie sit around their set and talk incessantly about walls than anything with these pack O Duffers, as they say back in the old country of Scotland, where I earned me Number One Dime, cleaning a ditchdigger's boot for....whoops, sorry, wrong soliloquy.  LAUNCHPAD!!!!  

Well, you get the point of the whole thing, right?

This movie never did work at all for the Duff sisters. In fact, it looks like the Duff sisters didn't have a lot of talent. I even think the same thing for the Olsen twins.

Yeah, I did find out from sportsartist about the Duff's latest film called http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0249516/ - Foodfight!  with Charlie Sheen, Christopher Lloyd, Eva Longoria, and Wayne Brady. The film has just been completed, but still wating for a release date. But I also found out that Hilary also has another film in post-production called http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0884224/" name=actressinp>Brand Hauser: Stuff Happens  with John Cusack, Marisa Tomei, Ben Kingsley, and Joan Cusack. As for Haylie, she has 3 films still in production, but a couple of them are completed. There's http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0806130/ - My Sexiest Year  with Frankie Muniz and Harvey Keitel, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0290666/ - I Remember  still in production, and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0487920/" name=actressinp>Legacy , which is also still in production.

I'm not gonna say this was a great movie, because it really wasn't. In fact, Hilary Duff's movies haven't been all that good since 2003's "Cheaper By The Dozen", And as a huge Hilary Duff fan, this is saying something. At least Haylie did do something without Hilary in it and that was 2004's "Napoleon Dynamite". And although Hilary hasn't been making great films, this one is her most entertaining.

Sad thing is that she still looks like a child trying to be all grown up. I looked at her picture on the cover of Maxim and all I could do is think of my 5 year old daughter, and wonder if Duff was even afforded a childhood...
