Review

Our Score
Almost ten years after appearing in Clueless, Brittany Murphy is still playing the dizzy dreamer - only here, her fluffy character is, unbelievably, the associate producer on a daytime talk show. Swallow that and you'll swallow any of this far-fetched nonsense, as the nosey 20-something is egged on by a co-worker (Holly Hunter) to delve into the secrets held within her boyfriend's electronic organiser. Although Murphy never really convinces, her clumsy charm is engaging, while the role of self-serving confidante showcases Hunter's underused aptitude for comedy. But what starts off as a cute if dumb exploration of female insecurities soon becomes increasingly cringeworthy, as Murphy's obsession with her beau's exes turns from curiosity into inadvertent cruelty.

Summary

A naive researcher for a TV talk show becomes increasingly insecure about her boyfriend's past, and sneaks a look at his personal organiser for clues. She decides to meet a few of his ex-girlfriends and interview them, pretending it is for a forthcoming episode, but ends up befriending one of the women. Romantic comedy, starring Brittany Murphy, Holly Hunter, Kathy Bates and Ron Livingston.
