Movie Info

LOL? It means "laughing out loud" in text language. It is also the name that Lola's friends have given her. However, when it is time to go back to school after summer break, Lola doesn't feel much like laughing. Arthur, her boyfriend, provokes her by telling her that he cheated on her over the summer. And her gang of pals is very gifted at complicating matters. Just like her mother, Anne, with whom life has become impossible, and not only because she has no idea what LOL means. That her parents have divorced is one thing, but that Anne treats her teenage daughter like a child, by lying to her about basic things - like the fact that she is still seeing her ex-partner on the sly, or that a cop is interested in her - is another. As for Anne, she wonders what on earth has happened to her sweet little daughter. From fusion to confusion, mother-daughter relationships simmer with love and plenty of LOL.

Jaw-droppingly handsome cast, laugh-out-loud moments aplenty and a finely sketched, more serious undertow should make this third feature by Gallic helmer Lisa Azuelos a big hit in Gaul.

Audience Reviews for LOL (Laughing Out Loud)

Not bad. Usual teen traumas and rebellions, but in France! Entertaining with an engaging cast. It will be interesting to see how they do the remake with Miley Cyrus.

Nice movie about French teens. Contrary to "the class", it relates the lives of well-off teenagers. The story focuses on Lola aka "Lol" who is dealing with school, love, friendship and family issues. In a world where iPods, cell phones & MSN Messengers have taken so much importance, communication is often difficult between teens and their overwhelmed parents. Sophie Marceau does a wonderful performance as Lola aka "Lol"'s mother who is torn between her responsibilities and her irresponsible behaviour as an adult.
