An authentic story that perfectly captures coming of age in today's digital world, LOL is a remake of the hugely popular 2008 French film LOL (Laughing Out Loud). Starting a new year of high school, Lola (Miley Cyrus), (or "Lol," as her friends call her), works to find the right balance between family, school, friends and romance. Broken-hearted by her ex, Lol's world is soon turned upside down when she is surprised to find her best friend, Kyle (Douglas Booth), a musician in an up and coming rock band, could possibly be the love of her life. In her quest towards independence, self-identity and young adulthood, Lol discovers that while Facebook "status" is easy to change; true relationships are worth the effort. -- (C) Lionsgate … More

Critic Reviews for LOL
It's a shame in a year that gave us "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," we have this tepid piece of junk.
What's of real interest here...is the casual, unforced portrayal just how indulged, spoilt, undisciplined and self-centred these iGen teens are.
LOL is DOA, a shapeless and charmless teen-skewing trifle stocked with trendy slanguage and social-network gimcracks that make it seem like something four years past its expiration date.
Audience Reviews for LOL
For a movie cleverly-if-cutesily called "LOL" (main girl's name is Lola, shortened to the ubiquitous internet slang) with the mawkish tagline of "You can change your status but not your heart," there's very little laughing out loud or status changing going on with the characters in the movie, to say even less for the viewing audience. The teen drama is vague and insipid, born of silly secrets, obvious misunderstandings, and a triangle of near-identical hipster boys.
Miley Cyrus rocks the honey blonde hair, but she is still scrunchy-faced and faux-angry and probably can't speak a lick of French with her thick drawl. Ashley Greene, herself, seems to be aware that she's the only twenty-five-year-old-looking super senior fawning over the boys at this school. Even Demi Moore is wooden.
"This movie is actually spot on when it comes to mother and daughter relationships. Especially when the mother had the child at a younger age. You still are growing and changing and sometimes are going through similar changes as your almost adult child. I know it's really a shocking discovery when you find out that your parents are human and still making mistakes and learning. I liked the movie, but the story wasn't strong enough. The acting by some wasn't that great either. Miley does OK in this film. Her crying seemed a bit fake at times. I found it really hard to believe her. The supporting cast really helped make this movie watchable. I miss Demi in films. I liked her in this. I wouldn't mind seeing her in more movies again. I think it's worth at least a one time watch."More
You can change your status, but not your heart.
Good movie! I can understand why "wanna be" critics feel like this is a bad movie but for real this movie is not suppose to be taken seriously. It's not an oscar movie we get it.. but don't criticized it like one. I thought this movie was fun and worth my time so go see it if you want on a lonely night.
In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes, and Facebook, Lola and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola's mom, Anne, "accidentally" reads her teenage daughter's racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, LOL is a fresh coming-of-age story for modern times.
