Little Black Book
Directed by Nick Hurran, Little Black Book follows Stacy (Brittany Murphy), an associate producer of a popular daytime talk show starring Kippie Kann (Kathy Bates), as she tries to figure out the root of her boyfriend's (Ron Livingston) commitment-phobic nature. Rather than continue to fruitlessly question Derek (Livingston) regarding his slew of failed relationships, Stacy sneaks into his Palm Pilot and begins interviewing his ex-girlfriends under the pretense of gathering information for a future show.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[O]ne of the worst romantic comedies of this or probably any other year."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"If you think it's worth it to sit there for 97 minutes for three or possibly four laughs, then you are beyond help."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"A romance-free, comedy-free romantic comedy."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"It's virtually impossible to root for a protagonist so shamelessly duplicitous."
‑ Neil Smith,
"Sloppy, book best left on the shelf."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"It's no fun to side with Murphy's mean-spirited paranoiac, so we're soon rooting for the gynecologist to uncover a venereal disease, or for the chef to whip up some salmonella, or even for that Palm cradle to fall into the bathtub."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Village Voice
"If it's hard to like the message and the characters in this movie, it's even harder to like the acting, though the casting is strong."
‑ Daphne Gordon, Toronto Star
"I just have managed to develop a hatred for all things involving Murphy, and this almost made me develop a hatred for Carly Simon."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"With digital do-it-yourself precision prying now, it may be not be how far you can go, but how much do you really want to know?"
‑ Prairie Miller, WBAI Web Radio
"The film is very funny and has many twists and turns as Stacy interacts with 3 ex-girlfriends."
‑ Vince Koehler, Entertainment Spectrum
"It's not well scripted enough or well acted enough to do much of anything, save make anyone watching really hate Brittany Murphy for being so annoying and so incredibly unlikely as a cute twenty-something Diane Sawyer wannabe."
‑ Sara Gebhardt, Washington Post
"A dud, mostly serving to remind us of the other, better movies that it wants to be when it grows up."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Um filme pouco apreciado que, acredito, ganhará popularidade com o passar do tempo, já que é infinitamente mais inteligente e ambicioso do que sugere sua superfície."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"We are drilled again and again in how much we should hate all of these characters."
‑ Mark Collette, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"The cinematic equivalent of chic lit -- mildly amusing, but completely forgettable once you're done with it."
‑ Nicole Perri, Premiere Magazine
