About the Movie
A hyperactive and high-fashion American transplant living in London and working for Vogue magazine does her best to enhance the lives of those around her while remaining blissfully unaware of the man who longs to profess his true love to her in an ultra-modern romantic comedy produced by Luc Besson and David Fincher and directed by Alek Keshishian. Emily Jackson (Brittany Murphy) lives a charmed life. Always on the go in her Mini Cooper and able to talk until the sun comes up and then some, her fast-paced lifestyle belies a sensitive soul who takes great joy in playing matchmaker for her many friends. It's Emily's gay roommate and constant companion, Peter (Matthew Rhys), who usually becomes the subject of the quirky Cupid's frequent pairings, and when handsome new photographer's assistant Paolo (Santiago Cabrera) arrives at the Vogue offices, Emily makes it her mission to bring the two men together. Unfortunately for the contemporary Holly Golightly, Emily is so busy arranging a love connection between Peter and Paolo that she remains completely blind to the obvious torch carried for her by the one suitor who longs to provide her the with the loving companionship that she so cheerfully arranges for others.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As thoroughly generic as its title.
Rotten: Viewers who don't loathe it immediately may find it the guilty pleasure of the season.
I can almost ..alllmost gaurantee this will become a sleeper hit ... Every one of my friends who has seen it, loves it or was surprised they never heard of it. I personally have seen it about 45 times!! I went through a nasty spell of heartbreak... and something about this movie..the way it is put together and the characters and the theme of it... just made my nights.
Trying to hard...
Watchable, but very frustrating. The film clearly tries VERY hard to make another 4 weddings type film, by exaggerating all things British - every name used, for example, whether for a road, person, or place. Simply, trying to hard to follow what is thought to be a formula. For an English audience, it will annoy. Americans, well - you guys will probably like it anyway! ;)
A really good movie
1- This was actually a rather funny movie, and though some would classify it as a chick flick, it wasn't one of those horrifically-easy-to-predict chick flicks - rather, it had a rather unique plot with interesting characters. 2- If you are worried about the "R" rating, don't - it is a 'soft R'.
