When it comes to teenagers, timing is everything. Those fickle, unbearable, and downright terrifying beings live an ever-changing world of trends and mood swings that you’d better be able to keep up with unless you want to them to take you out of their Top 8 on MySpace.
So it was questionable how the long-in-the-works Miley Cyrus teen dramedy LOL (that’s Laughing Out Loud for the laymen, or lame, man) would fare considering its been in the works since 2010, which is so 2008, which is so two-thousand and late. Or something. Judging from the international trailer for the flick, which is remake of the French film Laughing Out Loud, teens actually haven’t changed that much over the past few years in that they’re still spouting inane nonsense (“If he kisses you on the lips, it means he’s cool being your boyfriend,” “I feel so real with him,” “It’s so good to love someone so much it hurts”), they’re still upsetting their mothers with bad behavior and report cards (Mom here is played here by Demi Moore, who has dealt with her share of unruly youths before) and Miley is still getting in trouble for her questionable partying habits. Check out the full clip below:
Wait, so teens today (or at least in the past two years) can jet off to Paris on a moment’s notice and LOL is actually short for Lola? I think we’re back at square one here, folks. There’s still time, though. LOL still doesn’t have a U.S. release date.
