Material Girls

submit to reddit

Two cosmetic company heiresses find themselves high and dry, after a scandal rocks their company to its foundations. Can the girls get their fortune back?

Material Girls

This Duff comedy stars sisters Hilary and Haylie as rich socialites rendered temporarily penniless by a cosmetics empire scandal (apparently the only kind of industry young women can understand).
These Hilton clones have no clue about real life, so riding on the bus is quite the eye-opener. Few intentional giggles ensue, and much of the dialogue is painfully expositionary (sample line: "I like chemistry too that’s why I work in the lab"). The sisters have absolutely no ability to create sympathy what kind of master chemist can’t put out a small fire and totters squealing from the house, TiVo in hand?
"This is a disaster", says business colleague Tommy (Brent Spiner) at one point surely what teeth-gritted co-stars Angelica Huston and Lukas Haas must have been thinking all along.

Messy, patronising and tonally confused, this vanity project – timed to co-incide with Hilary Duff’s perfume launch – quite frankly stinks.
