A small-town teen (Aubrey Peeples) goes viral after a video of her singing is posted to the Internet.

    The cartoon was so great for young girls when it was on TV. It showed us that we could do or be anything including a CEO of a major company and be a parent to children. The movie doesn't even touch that. It is a nice coming of self movie but not the lovely cartoon it was named after. Great music, nice cast, disappointing live action remake. But if you are looking for just a cute film without the history then this is for you.

    This movie which is an adaptation of the 80s franchise Jem and the holograms. Literally had nothing to do with the plot of the franchise. The only thing that was the same was the names of the characters. If you changed the names of the characters you wouldn't even know it was a movie based on jem! It's a teenage coming of age story about a girl who becomes famous on YouTube and gets a record deal.

    I remember watching the cartoon when I was a kid. I was excited when they had the trailer. But then once I watched it, I was disappointed. It had nothing to do the cartoon. However after watching the movie, my kids loved it. It kind of reminds me of the movie Lenonade Mouth. If your kids liked that movie, then this is it.

    For those of us who grew up watching cartoons as a kid, Jem and the Holograms was part of our saturday morning memories. This new take on that classic cartoon is a fun, musical blast. The acting wasn't the best, the story just ok, but the music was great and made the movie worth watching and owning.

    This movie was so overlooked & underrated! I wish people would just go see the movies themselves & not just take critics reviews as the truth. This was a good solid movie, the acting was on point. The DVD is superb and crisp picture & sound. It's worthwhile, IMO.

    Well, this movie did very poorly at the box office, but my twelve year old daughter & I really liked it. Lots of music, some of the characters we recognized from Disney shows, it was a cute movie. Nothing really inappropriate for young girls.

    Not much substance to this movie. I never watched the series on Saturday mornings, but I new the idea of it from the commercials. This movie did not seem to follow the original concept. Not much for adults, but okay for young girls.
