Already being compared to Spring Breakers (because girls behave badly), The Bling Ring is spiritually much closer to Michael Bay's Pain & Gain; an early summer misfire that revelled in watching shallow buffoons steal money from rich assholes. Based on the Hollywood Hills burglaries, where four high schoolers went into unlocked celebrity homes and lifted various pieces of clothing, jewellery and cash, the film doesn't offer much other than contempt for its young criminal leads. A bizarrely over-acting Emma Watson co-stars with her egregious Valley girl accent. Sofia Coppola, who helmed a better film about Paris Hilton in Marie Antoinette, seems tone-deaf here. A deeper movie would at least attempt to understand this crew, or make use of how two of the suspects were already starring in a reality show during their arrest, instead of judging them like tabloid fodder. The Bling Ring is a film that snidely thinks it's better than the people it features. It isn't.
