  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Considering herself a flamingo in a flock of pigeons, Mary (Lohan) is anything but thrilled when her mom moves the family from New York City to another planet: Dellwood, New Jersey. Thinking of herself as an actress and wanting to be known as Lola Steppe, Mary starts Dellwood High and quickly comes across the popular Carla Santini (Fox), who is determined to have the lead role in the upcoming play the drama club is putting on. Wanting the role for herself, Lola sets out to prove to her drama teacher Miss Baggoli (Kane) and everyone else that she is the right one to play the part. "Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen" is based on the book by Dyan Sheldon. (Tricia Littrell/Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits images that are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered textures, and well balanced contrast and shadow delineation. The color scheme is bright and nicely saturated, with natural fleshtones, bold hues, and deep blacks. There is only some slight edge enhancement noticed, and pixelization is also limited. The picture quality for this DVD is perfectly suitable for the light storytelling. (Suzanne Hodges) The disc also includes a modified full screen (1.33:1) presentation
