The main problem with almost all romantic comedies is the predictability of the story. They all follow a basic thread: girl meets boy, girl hates boy, boy turns on the charm, girl falls for charm, a misunderstanding occurs, but boy soon proves his love for her. Fortunately, that playbook gets thrown out the window in this hilariously original rom-com.
After snooping through her boyfriend's Palm Pilot, Stacy Holt starts becoming paranoid that he's hiding things from her, most notably his ex-girlfriends. And soon she starts digging for more info on a few of them, but this leads to comic mayhem and disaster. The story constantly surprises, and you never quite know how it's all going to turn out. There is a major twist near the end which certainly sets it 'head and shoulders' above the rest in the genre.
The performances are excellent with Brittany Murphy displaying perfect comic timing in the lead role, one moment you're laughing with her and the next you're laughing AT her. She was never one of my favourite actresses, but in this movie, I managed to fall in love with her. And Holly Hunter is surprisingly effective in a role that will leave you 'gob-smacked'. This has to be the most perfect romantic comedy I've seen, and one I continue to watch on a regular basis. Because perfection is worth seeing again and again. (5 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)
Stacy Holt, an associate producer for a daytime talk show, is confounded by her boyfriend Derek's unwillingness to talk about his previous relationships. She soon opens a Pandora's box when her boyfriend Derek leaves temptation - his Palm electronic organiser - in her path.
Egged on by her co-worker Barb, Stacy sneaks a look at his personal digital organizer, scores the names and numbers of his exes, and sets up interviews with them - including a gorgeous fashion model and the perfect girl next door, as comic mayhem ensues.
Stacy might just learn more about herself than her man.
