Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen is a 2004 Disney film starring Lindsay Lohan, based on the novel by Dylan Sheldon.

Contains Examples Of:

  • Alpha Bitch: Carla, played by none other than Megan Fox.
  • …And That Little Girl Was Me: The song "Drama Queen (That Girl)" provides such a strong example, it names this trope almost word-for-word.
    That girl was a wild child dreamer but she'll find herself
    'Cause she believes in nothin' else
    And you'll look back and you won't believe
    That girl was me
  • Bait-and-Switch: When the official casting sheet for Eliza Rocks is revealed, after Lola and Carla race to the bulletin board to find it, Carla checks it first, and smugly remarks that she got the role she wanted. Clearly nervous, Lola reminds herself that "there are no small parts, only small actors", checks the casting sheet... And proudly announces she has been cast as Eliza, while Carla got the part of Mrs. Higgins.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Lola is the "redhead" (technically more of a strawberry blonde) to Ella's blonde and Carla's brunette.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Lola, especially to her mother.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: Straight-laced Ella bursts into tears at the idea of lying to her parents about going to New York City to see Sidarthur's final concert.
  • Cassandra Truth: Lola finally tells the truth about being at the after party for Sidarthur's final concert, but Carla lies and says she wasn't there. No one believes Lola.
  • Character Signature Song: Carla's is Lumidee's "Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)".
  • Do Not Call Me Mary
  • Drama Queen: Lola, obviously. It's right there in the title.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Mary Elizabeth. She insists that everyone call her "Lola".
  • Fangirl: Lola and Ella are huge fans of the band Sidarthur; Lola specifically is obsessed with the band's lead singer, Stu Wolff.
