What I don't get - is a movie about parties, sex and drugs the only alternative to doing family movies for an actor? Are there not plenty of other interesting topics about real life i.e. how to overcome poverty, end slavery, deal successfully with mental illness, etc. Or if you want to escape, a movie about getting out of North Korea, hunting down spies or terrorists. Do the next Inception or Mission Impossible.

Why is it always with these Mouseketeers that they only see one path out of child stardom? If Gomez et al are really interested in protecting their many underage followers from immorality, they could choose literally dozens of other paths.

The fact is, they themselves live in an unrealistic world of group sex, drugs and parties. They don't get involved in any interesting causes or do anything that has positive impact on society. Missed opportunities for them and sad for their fans.

Maybe the problem is with script writers. Writing a script involving sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll requires no deep-knowledge development. Writing about Susan B. Anthony and the struggles against denial of women's right to vote (or such) would be tough.

The problem is not just with script writers but with script buyers--the producers of this stuff. There was a time not so many decades ago when Hollywood wouldn't touch this trash with a ten-foot pole. Those guys are dead.

"But she's calling the film an opportunity to redefine herself as an actress."

So the only way to redefine yourself as an actress is to act in a film about booze, drugs and sex? If you don't have enough talent for better films maybe you should find a different career.


Bohemians continue to rule the entertainment industry and ritualistically must sacrifice three symbolic virgins to their false gods.

Sorry, female "Disney" child stars, but you have been deluded, misguided and ruined.

Seriously, Selena? You want to redefine yourself as an actress so you don't have to do Disney/teen flicks any more, and you graduate to the latest re-hash of College Girls Go Wild and flash a bunch of skin? Huh? It's the same audience that watched your plot-less teen movies 5 years back!

You do realize that it is a movie, they are actors. And if you don't want to see it, stay home. They did plenty of warning, and it's rated R.
