Yep, I'm serious. It's a sad list, but I'm a sad guy who watches Lindsay Lohan movies and makes Listy…
After her mom's death, Casey pulls away from everyone in her life, including her emotionally distant dad. With help from a magic spell, she tries to bring her mother back from the dead; instead, Casey's words accidentally awaken one of her least favorite toys: a statuesque Barbie clone named Eve. Things get worse when Casey's dad develops a crush on his daughter's living doll.
It's offensive at points ("Did you see that big woman dancing?!" Not to mention the sexism...) and wholly predictable, but the charm and nostalgia are still there, along with an abundance of quote worthy moments.

How old is Tyra Banks now, seriously?!
I remember watching this when I was little.
For the course of the film's running time we see an afraid young girl come to terms with profound loss by watching an inflated plastic doll with the body of a supermodel attract amorous attention from all who meet her including, of course, Casey's Dad. If there is a moral to be gleaned here, I'm not entirely sure what it is.
Full review here:
This movie was better than it should have been. It was surprisingly enjoyable for a TV movie, and had some decent writing as well.
Bonus: a couple of Evil Dead references that could have made this movie a LOT different...
- Mean Girls
- Freaky Friday
- Just My Luck
- The Mighty Ducks
