Hilary Duff
Actress, The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003)
Duff (by name...?) must be one of the most maddening leads in recent memory, a narcissistic, lip-chewing retard inside the body of a wealthy West Coast mom. The only moment that rings true is when Lizzie belts out a love song, to herself.
(Catherine Shoard, Sunday Telegraph)
Actress, A Cinderella Story (2004)
For all I know, Hilary Duff snorts heroin with the Manson Family in real life, but onscreen she's as close to real as Hollywood dares get: a little chunky, a tad awkward, hopeful and
hapless in equal measure. She can't act her way out of a sack, and so what? For the 14 minutes Duff has left in her career, the girls know she's one of them.
(Ty Burr, Boston Globe)
