Overview

Teen star Hilary Duff brings her popular television character Lizzie Maguire to the big screen, and now (very quickly) to DVD. Unquestionably the high point of this disc is the transfer, which is presented in both anamorphic 2.35:1 widescreen and cropped pan-and-scan. A wonderful job has been done here with the original film elements, as colors are perfectly realized, while blacks are solid and show no sign of breakdown. The detail is equally good, especially in presenting the beautiful city of Rome. The 5.1 Dolby Digital track is certainly predictable. The surrounds aren't developed in any significant way, but for a small teen romantic comedy, it still sounds full and recreates the existing sound field as it should. Supplements are relatively weak, with a 11-minute PR featurette on the making of the film as the centerpiece. Also included are the music video for "Hey Now" by Duff and a promotional piece hyping her new album. Amounting to little is a music video for the remake of "Volare," which consists solely of the scene in the film. Finally, along with some home video previews for the likes of Sleeping Beauty and The Lion King are two deleted scenes and an alternate ending, with option introductions from director Jim Fall.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
During a school trip to Rome, junior-high misfit Lizzie McGuire (Hilary Duff) yearns for adventure. And, this being The Lizzie McGuire Movie, she finds it -- in the person of a teenage Italian pop idol (Yani Gellman) who grooms her to stand in for his missing partner, to whom Lizzie bears a striking resemblance. As Duff's hit song asks, "Why not?" Duff, basic cable's tween queen, shines in this spin-off of the Disney Channel series. Reality takes a vacation along with starry-eyed Lizzie (and her sardonic animated alter ego), who is persuaded to ditch her tour group led by the dreaded Miss Ubermeyer, who makes R. Lee Ermy's drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket look like Mr. Rogers. She is aided in her deception by Gordo (Adam Lamberg), whom we suspect nurses an unrequited crush on his lifelong platonic pal, and harassed by her nemesis, the stereotypical popular, um, witch Kate (Ashlie Brillault), who issues such withering put-downs as "Outfit repeater." To pad the film's 90 minutes, there are several sightseeing and trying-on-clothes montages. And whenever the movie needs a little "oops, I did it again" touch, director Jim Fall has the wide-eyed dizzy Miss Lizzie trip, awkwardly and adorably. Add the requisite out-of-it parents and nasty younger brother, and you have all the ingredients to make our irresistible heroine more empathetic. As Lizzie says at one point, "Some say juvenile, I say genius." Or as Howlin' Wolf put it, "The men don't know, but the little girls understand."

    A Poor Man's "Princess Diaries"

    What's wrong with Disney lately? Just because "The Princess Diaries" was a big hit, why'd they have to rip it off in this medicore movie? It's the exact same story: shy American teen becomes huge European star, best friend secretly likes her but she's in love with the popular snob, main character has to choose between fame and real life, blah, blah, blah. When is Disney going to give us some originality already?

    This movie was horrible!

    This movie is horrible because they address the problem ten minutes before it ends. I would have also seem more of Lizzie and Gordo together since that's what people always talk about when they mention the show. This was a BIG let down.

    THIS BOOK DOESN'T NOT ROCK!

    I bet you didn't know that CapriMoon tastes like chicken? That's what I learned from this computer game? It taught me that in order to make ketchup, all you need is: 3 cups iodine 1 tbsp dirt 5 cups tacks Blend them up, and eat it. YUM?

    Way Unrealistic

    I like the Lizzie McGuire show but the movie made me mad!!!! Lizzie is always saying stuff like ' nothing special ever happens to me'. Well gee, in one episode she met Aaron Carter & in another she dated Frankie Muinez. If she can't realize how perfect her life is then she has BIG problems.

    Disappointing

    I actually like the Lizzie McGuire shows, so when I saw this movie I was very disappointed. First of all where is Miranda? It would have been better with Lizzie's best friend. The story was predictable and unbelievable. I mean who exactly has someone that looks just like them and just happens to be a pop star?! I found it very disappointing when Lizzie didn't believe her best friend and instead trusted a boy she had only known for a week at the most. I was happy when she finally trusted her best friend instead of that guy. The only good thing about this movie is when she sings at the end.

    Lizzie ''trips'' on screen with ''The Lizzie McGuire Movie''.

    Hilary Duff ''falls'' into the part of teenage Lizzie McGuire, and shines. As Lizzie embarks on her journey with her friends to Rome, the clumbsy , girl from next door, is mistaken for international pop star Isabella from the duo ''Paulo and Isabella''. Lizzie has fun for a while but then when she is forced to choose between her life or Isabella's. What should she do?

    Completely terrible!

    I have nothing against Hilary Duff personally; she's a great actress, but I can't stand the character Lizzie! She's such a whiny, ditzy little b*%(# who's too dense to see what a perfect life she has! She's gorgeous and has great friends, a great family, EVERYTHING! And yet she in the trailer she says ''Nothing ever seems to go my way''! Does that make sense?! So she's kinda unpopular at school and gets bullied by snobs, BOO-HOO! ''Doesn't she have anything better to do than make my life miserable?!'' Er, hello! With the way she treats Matt, she should be able to take care of Kate! What, is she a just a big chicken or something?! Why is popularity so important!? Kate's like, the only bad thing in Lizzie's life! Doesn't she know how to appreciate what she has!? Instead she focuses on what she DOESN'T have! Why would she wish to become famous (or something of the sort)?! If I were her, I wouldn't have a wish to make in that fountain thingy. Anyone without a brain should be able to see what a perfect life she has, goddang it! What a bimbo. All she does is WHINE! And she's so superficial. She is the complete opposite of a role model. The movie Holes, on the other hand, teaches the values of friendship, hard work, persistance, determination, etc. and shows how the main character goes from wimpy and timid to strong, confident and assertive. Now that's a role model for you. The character development shows that anyone who feels weak or inferior could really achieve a lot if they toughen up. And yet the horrible Lizzie McGuire Movie gets like twenty times more credit from what I've seen! The plot of Holes is very inventive and facinating and keeps you thinking, and has a great message, not to mention the most lovable characters you could imagine. The plot of Lizzie Mcguire is totally cornball! It sounds like a completely unrealistic fairy tale like Cinderella or something! One commercial for it says cheesy stuff like ''find out what dreams are made of'' or something like that. How often has THAT line been used in those corny, tear-jerking Diseny movies?! Holes is a crazy-good movie but sadly underappreciated while the Lizzie Mcguire Movie gets all the credit it doesn't deserve. I ask you, is that fair? What IS it with Disney these days!? Parents, keep your kids AWAY from Lizzie McGuire! It's the most deranged TV show/movie ever.

    Liked the movie alot cuz....

    it was a very carefree movie for tweens, tho if you have an older sibling they WON'T reccomend it- they think its too childish, although i think deep down they really enjoyed it. i went with a cousin to see it [my cousin is 16] and she still liked it just as much as i did [i'm 11]. though i thinnk its a bit unappropriate for little children for there is quite a bit of midriff showing on Hilary Duff's part. i give it **********[10] stars!!!
