Is there anything sadder than a child who is so lonely that her only friend is a doll? This could've turned out way differently, like horror movie differently, but instead it's a psychological drama disguised as a family comedy. But we digress.
Lohan plays the perfect outcast. The only girl on the football team—the quarterback, no less—she's argumentative and suppresses some deep-seated depression that she takes out in a bizarre way. Her mom just kicked the bucket, so she dabbles with a book of the dark arts to bring her mom back to life. It fails. The doll comes to life instead. It's completely believable why she only has one friend. —TA
