A romance-free, comedy-free romantic comedy.

I just have managed to develop a hatred for all things involving Murphy, and this almost made me develop a hatred for Carly Simon.

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.
| Original Score: 5/5

It's virtually impossible to root for a protagonist so shamelessly duplicitous.

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?

We are drilled again and again in how much we should hate all of these characters.

The film is very funny and has many twists and turns as Stacy interacts with 3 ex-girlfriends.

The cinematic equivalent of chic lit -- mildly amusing, but completely forgettable once you're done with it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Focus on the excellent performances by Holly Hunter and Julianne Nicholson, the primary reasons this mean-spirited comedy can be tolerated at all.

[O]ne of the worst romantic comedies of this or probably any other year.
Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
August 12, 2004
Promoted and apparently conceived as a romantic comedy, the film is neither very comedic, nor even slightly romantic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

A romantic comedy without much romance and even less comedy.

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.

Little Black Book has more in common with Sweet Smell of Success than When Harry Met Sally.

The first and last quarters show real ambition. It's the middle hour that's a drag.

[T]he film itself isn't really a romantic comedy because there's no romance in it. Rather it's the antithesis of a romantic comedy.

A silly but fun chick flick with a great ending.

The comedy veering into drama isn't smooth but with Murphy as the focus it works
Full Review| Original Score: 6/10

Setting out to make observations about relationships and America's obsession with rooting through the private lives of others, it ends up settling for a few cheap laughs.
