Hollywood Reporter

Director Jim Fall has orchestrated Lizzie's dream vacation with energy and humor.

Jane Horwitz

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

The target audience will absolutely adore it.

A fantasy that teaches girls that popularity and material possessions are the most important things in life and will fall right into your lap if you're adorable enough.
