Material Girls is a 2006 comedy-drama film starring Hilary Duff and Haylie Duff as two sisters, Tanzie and Ava Marchetta, who are heirs to their father's cosmetics empire. The film is directed by Martha Coolidge, and also stars Anjelica Huston as Fabiella, the Marchetta's housekeeper who is revealed to have her own agenda. At the beginning of the film, the Marchetta family is wealthy and well-respected, but their lives are turned upside down when a scandal breaks out about their cosmetics company. The scandal causes their father's death, and the sisters are left to take over the company and keep it afloat. As their cosmetics empire struggles, the sisters learn to navigate the world on their own and try to uncover who is responsible for the scandal.

Hilary Duff plays Tanzie, the younger sister who is known for her wild behavior and extravagant lifestyle. Tanzie loves her sister deeply but is often at odds with her more serious and practical older sister, Ava (played by Haylie Duff). Together, they must try to put aside their differences and work together to save their family business.

Anjelica Huston plays Fabiella, the Marchetta's loyal housekeeper who has her own ideas about how to save the company. Fabiella is known for her eccentricities, including her love of champagne and her habit of speaking in dramatic accents. She becomes a mentor to the sisters, teaching them about the importance of loyalty and hard work, and helping them to uncover the truth about their father's death.

As they investigate the scandal, Tanzie and Ava discover that their father's death may not have been accidental, and that someone is trying to sabotage their company from the inside. They enlist the help of a private investigator, played by Lukas Haas, to help them get to the bottom of the mystery.

Throughout the film, the sisters must learn to navigate the ups and downs of running a company, dealing with family drama, and learning to rely on each other. Along the way, they both discover that there is more to life than material possessions and that their bond as sisters is stronger than anything that money can buy.

Overall, Material Girls is an engaging and light-hearted film that explores themes of family, loyalty, and the true value of wealth. With a talented cast and a witty script, it is sure to entertain audiences of all ages.
