Grace is a single mom. She is too busy juggling work, bills, and the very married Dr. Hartford, to give her daughter, Ansiedad the attention she desperately needs. When Ansiedad's English teacher introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, she is inspired to skip adolescence and jump-start her life without mom. While Grace becomes preoccupied with the increasing affections of her co-worker, Ansiedad enlists the help of her loyal friend, Tavita.

I enjoyed this movie even though the teenager is rather smug and self centered but maybe that's just really the way things are nowadays.

Eva and Cierra work while off each other. The other issues are too glaring. The movie is a take of coming of age of both mother and daughter and tentative relationship it entails. Some of the issue are major such as sex, drugs an bullying that are glossed over. The conclusion too fairy-tale. There never was any real climax. The younger girl is called a slut and had drinks thrown on her for trying to sleep with the boy (which he lied about to save face) should liked, but the movie made it seem like all was just a bad movement and not something that recently was the cause of young girls commiting suicide.

An ok movie. I think Eva Mendes is pretty and a great actress. The little girl annoyed me throughout the whole movie , the actions she did and how she changed who she really was. The plot was stupid , and didn't really have no meaning. The only thing I found cute was the healing process of the mother and daughter reationship. If you liked this movie I recommended seeing LOL which basically has the same "plot" as this movie. The only difference is that in this movie the girl is younger , and in "LOL the girl who is played by Miley Cyrus is a teenager around 17 - 18 years old. This movie is not for kids. 18 years and older. 3 and a half stars.
