Horrible movie. Too much hype about nothing. If it was not for my daughter I would have walked out. Big let down. Not appropriate for children under 13. Bad influence. Emma Roberts acting soso.

The Bling Ring is at once compelling and disturbing. Coppola does a magnificent job in bringing her characters to life and also exposing the greed and mindless consumerism that not only consumes them but the celebrities whom they robbed.

Sorry, but I was not impressed with anything in this movie. The actors were okay, but
not outstanding. It is hard for me to believe that this group was so cordial when
they ransacked those celebrity homes...especially if they were under the influence of
drugs and alcohol.
I feel the movie was sugar coated..I would not recommend this movie to even
a young crowd because frankly, they wouldn't believe that they didn't behave
worse than what was shown on the screen.
Nope...not recommendable-I am just glad I had a gift card, because I would not
spend any money to see it had I known it was so bad.
The only thing this movie did was make me curious to read the article in the
magazine which prompted the making of the movie.

This movie was a little too much of a flat line for me. It needed much better pacing and either more drama or more comedy. Coppola did a good job of portraying the kind of vapid, reality-show-esque consumerism rampant among some young people and the way it inspired these wanna-be celebrities, particularly in LA. In their world, wearing and owning the same stuff as famous people is just as good as being famous. And to that end, they all want to be famous, but they don't want to DO anything or be good at anything.
I might rate this between "So-So" and "Go" but I knocked it down because with this material, this could have been a great movie.
The acting was not great, except for the guy who played Marc, the girl who played Chloe, and Leslie Mann. . Oh, and I was pleasantly surprised by Gavin Rosdale. He was pretty good.

The Blink Ring had a great story line to make an exciting and suspenseful meeting. They fell misearably short and I wouldn't recommend seeing this movie.
