"THis is such a funny little movie, not to be taken seriously. My friend recommended it to me so my sister and I rented it. WE BOTH LOVED it!! Of course, our reasons may be a bit shallow, but hey, this is a lot better than some of the other pre teen stuff out there. Even as a high school senior, I can enjoy a fun movie. Ratz was that fun movie. The main characters actually had to deal with things that my friends and I had delt with at their age(not the whole magic ring thing), unlike some other movies where twin girls go off and find the perfect guys in foreign countries. Though I do enjoy "some" of those movies, this was more of my bag.
I like a movie where you can laugh out loud and at the same time identify with the girls in the dentist chairs. Meanwhile, there are other characters that you'll fall in love with to keep one's interest peaked! Just a fun little movie!"
Great Movie for Preteen Girls (and their Parents)

"The perfect antidote to Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen! This one of the sweetest, cutest, funniest movies I've ever seen for the 8-14-year-old set. The humor is sharp without ever being mean-spirited, and there's always something going on in the background, which makes repeated viewing rewarding. Even adults will find plenty to love about this one! No violence, a couple of extremely mild double-entendres (so mild that they went right past my 10-year-old daughter), wonderful performances by young and seasoned actors alike. The two girls are natural and just darling, and Kathy Baker and Ron Silver turn in marvelously nuanced performances as a pair of lonely, slightly flaky star-crossed lovers. Fun, fun, fun. Buy it for the preteen girl (or enlightened boy) in your life!"
