    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    A superficial tween comedy that mocks celebutantes like the Olsen twins while simultaneously pushing stars Hilary and Haylie Duff as their replacements. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Even by the low standards of the genre it represents, this female teen comedy represents a new nadir. show more

    The Duffs are certainly cute together, but not even their natural chemistry can enliven all the preachy bits about hard work and the meaning of happiness. show more

    Boston Globe

    Isn't as witty, stylish, or sophisticated as the similarly themed "The Devil Wears Prada." Material Girls is pitched to the Seventeen crowd, and it succeeds on its own terms. These days, even pre teens live in a material world. show more

    There is plenty of blame to go around for this laughless mess. show more

    Russell Smith Austin Chronicle

    Mainly offers fodder for tweens who fantasize about glamorous Los Angeles lifestyles where everyone is skinny, rich, and on Prozac. It's a film where gays and minorities not only fit into stereotypes, but embrace them. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    It's less substantial than cotton candy, but Material Girls is as slickly produced as one of the Marchetta TV spots. show more

    The Duffs don't even fully commit to their characters here -- they’'e seemingly undecided about whether they can get away with being shallow and bratty without ruining their family-friendly images. show more

    Manohla Dargis The New York Times

    The real-life sisters Hilary and Haylie Duff star in this incompetent spin on the poor-little-rich-girl story. show more
