Bad Hair Day full movie review - One stupid pawnbroker
A teen looking for approval and a disgraced cop are forced to work together to recover a missing necklace, catch a notorious jewel thief and save this cop's job.
Laura Marano of Austin&Ally and Leigh-Alyn Baker of Good Luck Charlie make the unlikely partners in Bad Hair Day. By the way said day is also the day of the senior prom where Marano desperately wants to be prom queen.
This film is the first of Disney's offerings to its teen and adolescent market. Laura Marano is not too different from her Austin&Ally character of a good kid who wants approval be it audience or peer. As for Baker she's got some good comic ability in her which was often on display in Good Luck Charlie.
Christian Campbell plays the international jewel thief and he looks like he was having a good time taking small bites from the furniture. One thing totally spoiled it for me. The story has Campbell losing possession of the valuable necklace that Baker was supposed to be guarding and Marano winds up with in a roundabout fashion. It gets to her because someone pawned it. I have to tell you that when that necklace came to the pawn shop it must have been one stupid pawnbroker who got it. I can't believe he thought it was costume jewelry and let Marano have it. In real life he'd either go broke or be laughed out of the business.
Still sub par though it is Bad Hair Day has its amusing moments.
