That's not to say chick-flick fanciers won't enjoy it, but director Sofia Coppola seems to have lost something in translation.
To the end, even after their capture and imprisonment, these wayward teens, who filled their lives with booze, drugs, celebrity worship and home invasion robberies are more concerned with their Facebook status than the crimes committed.
And if they say "Oh my God," "Sweet" and "Sick" a few too many times, they can be excused. What else can you say when witnessing first hand the obscene amount of jewelry, shoes, clothes, and yes, bling the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan have amassed?
To Coppola's credit, she doesn't spend much time psychologizing about their behavior, still something's missing from this story— something that would have made it zing like bling.
