An authentic coming-of-age story: LOL: Laughing Out Loud
LOL: Laughing Out Loud is the American remake of the 2008 French film of the same name that in 2008 grossed more than €35 millions. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, the movie is an authentic coming-of-age story in the vein of La boum. Lola's high school inner-circle includes Kyle (Douglas Booth) - Lola's BFF, whom she realizes is her love interest; Lola's two best friends Janice (Lina Esco) and Emily (Ashley Hinshaw); Max (Adam Sevani), a nerd that Emily secretly hooks up with; Lola's ex-boyfriend and Kyle's best friend Chad (George Finn); Lloyd (Tanz Watson) who is part of their crew; and Ashley (Ashley Greene), the sexy girl who has set her sights on Kyle, much to Lola's dismay. Thomas Jane plays Alan, Anne's ex-husband and Lola's father. Jay Hernandez plays James, a dangerously cute, good-natured cop dating Anne who is able to offer a little perspective on her teenage daughter. Austin Nichols plays Mr. Ross, the heartthrob math teacher, who all the girls have a crush on. Marlo Thomas plays Gran, Anne's sophisticated mother whose relaxed demeanor allows her to be the easy-going bystander when it comes to watching Anne raising children of her own. Gina Gershon and Fisher Stevens play Anne's closest friends and confidants and Nora Dunn plays Emily's mom.
In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes and Facebook, Lola and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola's mom, Anne, "accidentally" reads her teenage daughter's racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown.
