Time Out says

Even with all the plot templates available for spoiled L.A. girls gone wild, the Marchetta sisters (the Duffs) are still too tepid to make luxurious living even slightly entertaining in this riches-to-rags comedic flop. After their late father’s megasuccessful cosmetics company is falsely charged with selling a skin-damaging formula, the duo sloppily tries to investigate the scandal and considers business offers from beauty competitor Fabiella (Huston). Their wedding engagements and credit cards canceled, the belles are reduced to finding a mama’s love in the arms of their cleaning lady and chaste flirting with two middle-class studs. Paris and Nicole would at least have had a decent fight or two. (Now playing; Click here for venues.) — Cherie Dennis
