very weird movie
28 July 2006 | by blue_wave_aquaSee all my reviews

I used to like this movie a lot. But once you see it too many times it just gets old and boring. The part that threw me off was the end. The whole dog thing is just too weird for my taste. I just didn't understand it.

Aqua is suppose to have a twin (says in the book). Where's the twin?! Honestly, if they're going to do a movie based on a book, at least get it right! I found other parts unrealistic. Like the whole Jackel Johnson scene and about Chanelle's mom wearing her clothes. Normal? - I THINK NOT! I also thought it was insane How even though the girls are not in the talent show because Galeria quit, they end up winning! SO Cliché! I liked the songs. I even got the CD. I only listen to the songs that the Cheetah Girls do not sing. I think it's because I've heard it too many times.

Like I said, I used to liked this movie. But that was when I was very small. Now I see how unrealistic and boring it is, and overplayed on TV way too many times. The Cheetah Girls were suppose to have their own TV show but couldn't because Raven was too busy. It would've been interesting to see what that was like but at the same time I think it's a good thing there is no show.

Now that the Cheetah Girls are a real life group, I find it insane. It looks like they kicked out the third member of 3LW and replaced her with Sabrina Bryan. Evn if Raven decides to go into it, I don't think It'll be any better.
