My Scene Goes Hollywood: The Movie is a 2005 direct to video animated film based on Mattel's line of My Scene dolls. It features Barbie and Lindsay Lohan, who plays herself. It is the third feature with the My Scene characters, and the only one that was full-length. The film was directed by Eric Fogel. Although the title of the film suggests a trip to Hollywood, California, the entire plot takes place in New York City, where all the My Scene characters live.

Plot[edit]

The My Scene girls are attending high school in Manhattan when they find out there's a new teen spy movie called "Spy Society" being filmed there, starring Lindsay Lohan (who plays Mariel St. Clair, the lead character) and fictional character Ryan Ridley (who plays Lohan's love interest in the movie). While the girls, Barbie, Chelsea, Madison, Nolee, and Delancey, go to watch it being filmed, they get the idea to sneak into the film by pretending to be extras.

While working as extras for the movie, the girls quickly learn that there's actually a lot of work that goes into making a movie, such as getting to the set really early in the morning, doing hours and hours of takes on a scene, and Chelsea keeps getting terrible roles such as towel girl, trash girl and even being forced to clean up after the horses that are being used in the movie. The girls imagine themselves becoming best friends with Lindsay Lohan, who turns out to be really nice and down-to-earth (and who they do end up becoming friends with).

When one of the actresses on the set gets hurt and is unable to play her part, Madison's called in to take her place. The actress she's replacing plays the movie's lead female villain, although the character only has five speaking lines

After a while, the fame starts going to Madison's head. She also thinks that she and Ryan are dating as they always go out together and the tabloids refer to as "Ryan's Mystery Girl." When she gets invited to a party with Ryan and Lindsay, her friends show up to surprise her. But Madison's very rude to them and pretends that she does not know them. She starts acting and dressing like a diva, and avoid her lifelong friends. This causes her friends to become mad at her and start avoiding her.

When shooting is about to wrap in New York, Madison asks Ryan how they will handle their relationship. Ryan's surprised to hear her say this, and admits that he doesn't see Madison as his girlfriend, making Madison heartbroken upon the realization that Ryan was probably never going to feel the same way about her as she did about him. Lindsay witnesses this and goes to tell the other girls about it—however, the girls are still mad at Madison for how she treated them and don't seem to care, feeling that she deserves it. Lindsay gets mad at them and briefly lectures them about the importance of friendship, pointing out that despite everything that's happened between them and Madison, she needs them now more than ever. Hearing this, the girls let go of their anger towards Madison and go to her home, where they all apologize to each other and become friends again.

In the end, the girls all go to the red carpet premiere of the movie, where they join up with Lindsay. After Ryan gets to the premiere and tries getting Madison and Lindsay's attention, but they ignore and go to watch the movie with the other girls.

Reception[edit]

My Scene Goes Hollywood: The Movie earned negative reviews from critics and viewers alike.

Lacey Worrell of DVDTalk gave the movie a negative review, writing that "The plot of this movie is paper-thin, made even more nauseating by frequent mention of teen queen and guest voiceover artist Lindsay Lohan, who at this point in her career is overexposed at best, her drama-fueled personal life having overshadowed her acting talents. Revolving around the old cliché of friends-forever, it's nothing you that hasn't already been done many, many times by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. And the acting is just as wooden. The message also appears to be that, regardless of skin color or ethnic background, everyone can be just as vacuous as Barbie!" She ended the review saying "Not all entertainment aimed at children needs to be educational, because let's face it, adults seek escape through entertainment all the time. But the entire presentation of this DVD is vapid and unrealistic; it goes beyond superficial and into the inane. How about a little substance with the style next time?".[3]

As of August 22, 2016, the film has a 5.8 out of 10 rating on IMDb.
