from all the reviews that seem to be going around for this movie, you'd think this film was definitely about one thing - learning to act your age. well, i just watched it, and that's not what i saw. i saw a film about two girls with no one they felt they could confide in or express their true feelings to. two girls, hiding the real them behind fake personas, gradually letting their true colours show and finding friendship with each other.
there's no denying it's a chick flick, but it's not the shallow and unrealistic bunch of fluff that the majority of critics seem happy to let you believe. there are some really sad bits in this film, with, of course, the necessary cheesy hollywood-style ending where everyone lives happily ever after.
seriously though, watch this movie with an open mind, and ignore jesse spencer's awful acting and even worse singing, and this film is sure to capture your heart.

In terms of the basic plot "Uptown Girls" is totally predictable. Molly Gunn (Brittany Murphy) is a spoiled little rich girl who needs to grow up when she is forced to go out and get a job for the first time in her life. Ray Schleine (Dakota Fanning) is an 8-year-old even littler little rich girl who is not only a hypochondriac and wise beyond her years but who needs to learn how to be a kid. Of course circumstances throw them together when Molly becomes Ray's nanny. There is the comic period of butting heads, the tentative beginnings of friendship, the point at which things blow up big time, and the heartfelt reconciliation. But one of the reasons that formula films like this continue to be made is because more often than not they work. The result is not a great film, but an enjoyable one where the best part of the film is the finale, where between them writers Julia Dahl, Mo Ogrodnik, Lisa Davidowitz and Allison Jacobs come up with a creative way of bringing together major plot elements.
The twist with Molly Gunn is that she is the daughter of a rock 'n' roll legend, guitarist Tommy Gunn. Her parents were killed in a plane crash when she was about Ray's age and she has been living off the residuals. In her apartment there is a shrine in which all of her father's guitars are displayed, including the one on which he wrote his biggest hit, "Molly Smiles," the song that Molly can no longer bear to here. Molly might be spoiled, but she has a kind heart and not a mean bone in her body. When her accountant steals all of her money and disappears she has her friends, Ingrid (Marley Shelton) and Huey (Donald Faison), who stay true and try to help her survive in the real world (I liked not having to do deal with her friends forgetting her now that she is broke).

I wasn't sure i was gonna like this movie, Brittany Murphy's always good but you know what they always say you shouldn't work with children and animals, and in this she co-stars with both. Dakota Fanning was wonderful casting as Ray the uptight 8 year old Molly(Brittany Murphy) has to look after. THey both teach each other valuable lessons in life, Molly to grow up and become an adult and for Ray to learn how to be a child while she still is one! This was a light hearted movie with plenty of laughs. Donald Faison, Heather Locklear both star in the movie adding both serious and laughable elements. The one bad thing about this movie i have to admit was Jesse Spencer, sorry but you should stick to the acting because your singing was awful, it kinda ruined a perfectly good movie! A sunday afternoon movie for mums and daughters to enjoy!!!

I really enjoyed the film, but when I first watched I had to get the disk cleaned a few days later because the disk got stuck. So I had to wait a little longer to watch. Everything was fine after that. I got really got into the film and would encourage anyone to watch.

I got dragged to see this by a friend and as this isn't usually my sort of thing I thought I would hate it. However, I was really surprised and recommend that you give this film a chance even if you were put off by the front cover (though saying that, you wouldn't be reading this now). Basically I think this is a great film.

This is an excellent film on two people who learn each other on how to act their age. Firstly, ray[dakota fanning]a fussy eight year old who teaches her nanny molly gunn[brittany murphy]how to act her age,ray acts as a young adult where's molly is quite childish. But as ray gets to like her new nanny, things start to change they become great mates who both learn from each other. They have quite alot of things in common both of their dads have just died and both are scared in different situations. [IN MANY CASES THIS FILM IS ENJOYABLE FOR ANYONE.]

Molly Gunn is the daughter of the late, legendary, rock&roll guitarist Tommy Gunn. When her accountant runs off with her money she's left broke with nothing. She becomes the nanny of rich and lonely girl Ray Schleine where she meets her match.

I was so expecting your classic chick flick with all the Hollywood guff thrown in for comic effect, what I got? A story of two lonely girls thinking they have nobody in the world meet and create a bond and friendship after firstly their personalities clashing. Two girls who after years of hiding behind a façade eventually let their true selves shine.

Obviously Hollywood had to have it's happy ever after, but I thought it was done well. It was touching and one I think you should give a chance to. Watch it - you'll see what I'm on about!
