Material Girls

Material Girls WOOf! 2006 (PG)

And we are living in a material world, which explains why movies like this get made. Two snotty, vapid cosmetic-heir sisters (Hilary and Haylie Duff) find themselves suddenly penniless when their company faces scandal. They spend much of the running time yelling at each other as they primp and mug and fuss over the indignities of being poor (or at least at the same economic level as the wannabe teen queens to whom the flick might possibly appeal). By the time they make their obligatory transformation to girls with hearts of gold, they're so unlikable it's impossible to give a darn. Huston's appearance as the menacing Fabiella is hardly a consolation. And the Duffs' limp cover of the title song sounds like it was performed by automatons on karaoke night. 100m/C DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
