Goofs

Around the middle of the film, the four girls are practising a dance on some outdoor stairs. At the end of the dance, Amy stumbles and slips down a step. It does not appear deliberate, as she giggles and seems to look up at the crew behind the camera, but then she does her end pose. See more »

I can understand the reality this movie portrays for young girls (and even you boys), and can appreciate the pressures of today's society that are placed on children. I also understand the argument by supporters of this film which say this movie sheds light on those issues. However, sexualizing children in the way this movie did is not the way to address these issues. I can look past the context and reality of this movie, but can't look past how the director shot this movie and what they chose to focus their cameras on. The message in this movie, if done a little more tastefully, could have been a good one. But it was outdone by the hypersexualization of these girls. IF, the cameras didn't focus on the things they did in the way they did, then I would rate this movie 5 stars. Excluding the major controversy surrounding this film, it really wasn't a great movie, just average. My 1 star rating is because these girls were "used" in a way they shouldn't have been which was uncomfortable to watch, regardless of how "real" it may be.
