Product Description

Romantic comedy directed by Nick Hurran. Aspiring newscaster Stacy (Brittany Murphy) opens a Pandora's box when her boyfriend Derek (Ron Livingston) leaves temptation - in the form of his Palm electronic organizer - in her path. As Stacy uncovers Derek's past and looks up all his former girlfriends, including a gorgeous fashion model and the perfect girl next door, mayhem ensues. But in the end, Stacy learns a lot more about herself than about her beau. Holly Hunter and Kathy Bates co-star, and singer Carly Simon makes an uncredited cameo.

From Amazon.co.uk

Half screwball romance, half television satire, Little Black Book follows insecure Stacy Holt (Brittany Murphy, Uptown Girls, 8 Mile), who has an idyllic relationship with a great guy named Derek (Ron Livingston, Office Space) and a job as an associate producer for a daytime talk show that fuses Jerry Springer and Ricki Lake. Then a cynical co-worker named Barb (Holly Hunter, Broadcast News) persuades Stacy to delve into Derek's Palm Pilot to learn more about his ex-girlfriends--which sends Stacy into a spiral of ever-increasing paranoid compulsion. Little Black Book takes some unexpected plot twists that some viewers will find inexplicable and others will find weirdly fascinating. The movie's split personality makes it unsuccessful as a whole but compelling in parts. Hunter steals the show, in more ways than one. Also featuring Kathy Bates, (Misery, About Schmidt) and Julianne Nicholson (Seeing Other People). --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I wasn't very keen on seeing "Little Black Book" since it has suffered very bad reviews. Finally, I rented it and it wasn't a disappointment at all. The story is quite basic: Stacy (played by Brittany Murphy) is a TV producer for a well-known talk-show. Things are going great for her, and she doesn't mind that her boyfriend never discusses his old relationships - well, until her new co-worker Barb (Holly Hunter) suggests she should do some research. It's not long before Stacy stumbles upon her boyfriend's little black book, a.k.a. his palm pilot.

First of all, "Little Black Book" is NOT a regular comedy. Sure, there is plenty of dialogue to keep you smiling and a few laugh-out-loud moments, but the whole concept is just not of the comedic type. At least not in the script, but Murphy's amazing comedic talent (also shown in "Just Married") is evident here and it breathes life into the story.

Second, "Little Black Book" is NOT a ROMANTIC film. It starts off like that, but it crosses the finish line as a coming-of-age story. The publicity for this film didn't do it justice - the trailers showed a hilarious romantic comedy, spoiling all the jokes and sending a wrong impression. This is not, by any means, a perfect movie. However, Brittany Murphy, Holly Hunter and the considerable talents of Josie Maran and Julianne Nicholson make sure it's not mediocre, either.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tad Unusual... 4 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
Its definately a different concept for a film classified as a romantic comedy. Highly unpredictable, and this only adds to its charm. For those of you who are anticipating a typical romantic comedy, prepare to be shocked.
It is a feel good movie with a strange twist. Brittany Murphy is very funny in this role, despite having some bad reviews, but she is perfect for this role. Kathy Bates is wonderful as usual, as is Holly Hunter.
Definately a film for those who want a giggle, and for the girls who cant resist peeking into their man's sordid history!

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise 9 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
What a great movie this turned out to be. Not only is it not just another rom-com, but in parts is wildy funny and actually has a brain. Brittany Murphy was made for comedy whilst Holly Hunter and Kathy Bates are both hoots respectively. Thankfully the movie isn't ruined by a predictable and cliche ending and is a pleasure to watch. Plus, it has a fantastic cameo that sets up one of the movie's funniest moments. Along with 13 Going on 30, this is one of the few rom-coms from last year that strayed from formulaic and just invented its own direction. It saddens me that this film has received so many negative reviews because it is actually really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical romantic comedy 23 April 2005
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As a general rule, I try to avoid anything with Holly Hunter in it - but Brittany Murphy is just so darn cute, and Kathy Baker always turns in a great performance, so I decided to give Little Black Book a go. It was a good decision. The film was different and very entertaining, in a weird sort of way, and even Holly Hunter wasn't that bad. I guess you could call this a romantic comedy, although it certainly doesn't fit the mold perfectly. It's also a satire, using one of those awful daytime talk shows our society is now cursed with as the fulcrum for everything that takes place.
Brittany Murphy is Stacy Holt, a young woman cruising up the escalator of happiness - at first. She just got a job as an associate producer for The Kippie Kann Show, and she thinks she has finally found Mr. Right and his first name is Derek (Ron Livingston). Then Derek goes out of town for a couple of weeks, and Stacy's co-worker Barb (Holly Hunter) gets her wondering about good old Derek's past. She discovers all kinds of pictures on his PDA and seeks out and interviews three of his former girlfriends, making them think she is pre-interviewing them for a segment about them (all are quite successful in their own sorts of ways) on The Kippie Kann Show. A comedy of error ensues. As you might suspect, there's a really big twist to the whole story, one that doesn't exactly come at you from the blind side, but I'm not going to ruin it for anybody.
Some people say Holly Hunter steals the show; she's good, but Brittany Murphy carries the whole movie as far as I'm concerned (I loved Kathy Bates as Kippie Kann, but hers was something of a secondary character). I'm not saying Brittany Murphy is the only actress who could have played Stacy Holt, but this movie would have bombed with many another actress.

On a cold, wet, miserable and wintry evening I thought this might be just the thing to warm the cockles and banish the winter blues. I was wrong. I had to turn the film off half way through as I couldn't bear to watch it any more (I did force myself to watch the rest of it the following day just to see if it improved - it did, but only marginally). For a comedy it was severely lacking in laughs - I laughed once (my flatmate didn't laugh at all). I can't imagine why Holly Hunter and Kathy Bates got involved with it at all and their presence is the only reason this film warrants two stars rather than one. Trying to look on the bright side, the presence of Ron Livingstone is briefly diverting - but brief it is as he doesn't appear in the film half so much as the advertising would suggest, nor half so much as Bob the dog.
