In this comedy, teenager Katie Simpson (Ami Dolenz) has a makeover and begins to attract a lot of attention from the high school boys, much to the dismay of her overprotective father (Tony Danza).
The script is another one of those high-concept specials that sound like they were midwifed by an agent.
Dragoti's dire, dishonest, seldom humorous social comedy has all the nauseating hallmarks of a big-budget sitcom.
Director Stan Dragoti keeps things lively and makes this adolescent paean to popularity relatively painless.
Essentially a feature-length sitcom, She's Out of Control specializes not in psychology but in snappy patter.
It is an extended version of familiar, bland sitcom situations.
As dated as an '80s music video...
Despite some funny scenes, the sitcomish treatment of a father's anxiety over his teenage daughter's budding sexuality is mostly shallow and uneven.
She's Out of Control is simultaneously so bizarre and so banal that it's a first: the first movie fabricated entirely from sitcom cliches and plastic lifestyles, without reference to any known plane of reality.
This leads to all manner of trivial, pseudo-comic shenanigans, but not to any insight, comic or otherwise, into the emotional realities of father-daughter relationships.
