As a small-town girl catapults from underground video sensation to global superstar, she and her three sisters begin a journey of discovering that some talents are too special to keep hidden. – Source
How the heck do you make a live-action version of one of the silliest/campiest 1980s Saturday morning cartoons ever made that somehow looks like an extra maudlin episode of VH1’s Behind The Music? Where is the silliness that was a hallmark of the old Jem show? Because it darn sure aint in this odd adaptation that seems to be Jem in name only.
Where is Synergy? Where is the holographic image changer? Where are the freaking Misfits?!?!? And if you were not going to embrace the all out ridiculousness of the source material then why even use the name for your film? No one who was a fan of the old cartoon is clamoring for a Disney Channel version of the story of how The Bangles formed and the actual target demographic for this movie probably has no freaking clue what Jem & The Holograms actually used to be. Everything about this movie and this trailer just confounds me.
