A most pleasant surprise, Sleepover is reminiscent of last year’s hit Freaky Friday, an unabashedly goofy kids’ movie with good intentions that adults will enjoy more than they have any right to.
Julie (Alexa Vega from the Spy Kids trilogy) is a 14-year-old whose life is in crisis, not a big surprise for a teenager. Her best friend is moving to Vancouver, leaving Julie alone and unpopular as middle school ends and high school looms near. Her former best friend, Stacie (Sara Paxton), has now joined a group of popular, cosmetically gifted girls who resemble an underclass version of the Plastics in Mean Girls.
