I'm not thrilled about what's in the newest book, however, I was a huge fan growing up. Soooo...I am curious about the movie. Especially since Diablo Cody is penning the script. Here's what Francine Pascal (creator) said about it:

There is a script, but I haven’t read it yet. It’s a first draft and she was a little hesitant, but she has to show it to me. They’re 16 in it, and I said, ‘Please keep it in the ’80s,’ which she’s doing. It would be wrong any other way. It belongs in the ’80s. the whole sentiment is in the ’80s. The whole idea of updating it, like we did with the size 4 a few years ago [Random House released a new version of the books in 2008 in which the twins dropped two sizes from their original "perfect size 6"] … a mistake. We don’t do that anymore. We don’t talk about it.

Thoughts?
