Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Lizzie Mcguire Movie

This movie is about a high school graduate named Lizzie McGuire who takes a trip to Rome with her classmates. Lizzie McGuire is a middle school graduate who gets to take a trip with her class to Rome, Italy. Once in Rome, Lizzie runs into a famous singer named Paolo who sings with Isabella as partners on stage. Lizzie McGuire happens to look a lot like "Isabella" except she has blonde hair and Isabella has black hair. Paolo wants to humiliate his partner Isabella on stage, so tricks Lizzie into singing with him (pretending to be Isabella,) and Lizzie agrees too.

Paolo is actually trying to show the world Isabella lip syncs, so he can have his own show without Isabella, so his scheme is to turn off the mic and allow Lizzie (pretending) to be Isabella to really sing on stage to ruin Isabella's career. However, it turns out Paolo himself lip syncs and his scheme turns back on him and the world actually finds out that Paolo is the one who cannot sing and lip syncs, not Isabella. At the end of the movie Lizzie and Isabella come together and sing Hilary duff's hit "What dreams are Made of," bringing the audience at their feet clapping and screaming from enjoyment.
Best part of story, including ending: I loved this story! I really liked it because it is based on a pop star family comedy. I liked how Paolo was trying to humiliate his partner Isabella, but instead ended up humiliating himself. I also really enjoyed the rehearsals Paolo and Lizzie did when they were practicing to sing at the end of the movie.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene of the movie was when Paolo got cut off and actually had to sing but could not. Also, I LOVED the scene when Lizzie McGuire and Isabella came together to sing "What dreams are made of" but Isabella left Lizzie to sing by herself and Lizzie killed it, preforming an excellent show!

Opinion about the main character: I liked all of the characters in the movie. Hilary Diff who played Lizzie McGuire is an excellent actress, she played her role very professionally and realistically. I also loved Paolo's accent in the movie, it was so romantic!
