Movie Summary

Jim Fall
The Lizzie McGuire Movie is a 2003 Disney film based on the hit sitcom Lizzie McGuire, starring Hilary Duff. Lizzie and her classmates take a school trip to Italy, where she encounters the famous Italian pop singer Paolo (Yani Gellman). Paolo tells Lizzie that she looks just like his singing partner Isabella and that he must see her again. Pretending to be sick, Lizzie sneaks away from the school group and goes off with Paolo. Lizzie agrees to present an award as Isabella and prepares for the occasion by making a dress. When it is discovered that Paolo has been deceiving Lizzie, she and Isabella plot to expose him for his lack of talent. As he lip-synchs to a song in front of a packed stadium, Lizzie pulls the plug and the crowd is horrified. Lizzie then impresses everyone by singing "What Dreams are Made of." The Italians fall in love with Lizzie, and she must decide whether to live her life as an Italian pop star or return home. Also starring Adam Lamberg, Robert Carradine, Jake Thomas, and Alex Borstein, The Lizzie McGuire Movie was directed by Jim Fall.moreless
