The Bling Ring opens with grainy security camera footage of a gaggle of teenagers hopping a fence and robbing someone. The night vision was a nice touch considering that the film is about Millennial punks robbing a pseudo celebrity who's best known for a "leaked" sex tape shot in the same style.
Soon after, we're introduced to Marc (Israel Broussard), the new kid at an L.A. area high school for dropouts and burnouts. He links up with Rebecca (Katie Chang) and her glam-trash version of The Plastics, comprised of Nicki (Emma Watson), Chloe (Claire Julien) and Sam (Taissa Farmiga).
Rebecca and Marc start to earn their B&E chops by raiding cars outside ritzy neighborhood parties and dropping by to check-in on a "friend" while he's out of town. Eventually, they decide to get things turnt up and find themselves playing a highly illegal game of dress-up at Paris Hilton's pad. Rebecca gives her cronies a call and suddenly it's all, "get in losers, we're going robbing."
The rest of the film should have been a two-minute montage, but drags on for what feels like an eternity. Teenagers doing drugs. Teenagers rapping along with their favorite songs. Teenagers driving around in expensive cars. Teenagers playing dress-up and robbing celebrities. Teenagers doing drugs and rapping along with their favorite songs while driving expensive cars to go play dress-up and rob celebrities.
