Two dissimilar twin sisters haven't spent a day together in years until the day they journey to New York City and everything goes wrong. They're chased by a truant officer and a killer who wants a chip back. But they do meet two nice guys.
The silver spoon daughters of the late cosmetics empire founder Victor Marchetta, Avan and Tanzie, never even took an interest in the business, happy to let it be run by their and the firm's administrator, Tommy Katzenbach, while they lead socialite lives, aiming at a marriage with soap star Mic Rionn. Suddenly a scandal wrecks the firm's stock and their family reputation. Their credit cards are canceled, one of them torches the mansion, the other hands their sports-car to a thief mistaken for a parking valet. So they end up living with their Latina former cleaning lady. Help to investigate whether the firm is really best sold to competitor Fabiella, as Tommy claims, comes from hunky lab technician Rick, whom the previously mistook for the inexistent firm parking lot attendant, and Henry Baines, whose free law for the poor charity they didn't even consider for sponsoring.Written by

I call it a pack rat movie. Why? because much like tinfoil and shiny things lure in pack rats, this kind of movie, with its overdose of fashion, diamonds, and corny one-liners draws in the pack rat audience, mostly comprising of 8 year old girls. (no offense) But while I would give it a low rating for that, this movie is even lower, because not even the story is original. If any of you out there are Disney channel lovers(like me!)you will know what I am talking about. As we flip through the endless list of Disney channel original movies,from corny to amazing to just plain bad,we come upon one movie. Cowbelles, made earlier this year, stars Aly and AJ as two rich, spoiled sisters who are made to work by their father after he loses his money made through his dairy factory. Sound familiar? Yeah I thought so. Both movies are pack rat movies, bursting to the seams with exurbanite fashion and huge amounts of bling,screaming, and shopping trips. they both also feature a common theme, that it is always good to work for your money, and after enduring some minor hardships, they come out changed people. they also come out with hot boy toys, and a "greater sense of the world". My summary? Material Girls is simply a badly made, copycat, pack rat movie that should stay at the back of the movie closet.
