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.

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?

Both psychologically revealing and richly comic.

Given the fact that it's August, you could do worse than hide out from the heat with the cute-as-a-bug Murphy, who manages to be funny and entertaining despite the material.

We assume this is going to be a routine career-girl comedy, and we're surprised when it moves deeper into its subject until finally it's a satirical comedy about television that invades some of the same territory as Network or Broadcast News

One must endure all that depressing down time for one happy lift in the end.

It's written more cleverly than you might expect, with occasionally funny one-liners ... and the good sense not to take itself too seriously most of the time.

Characters have hidden motivations unexplained until the end, and deep reservoirs of urgent emotion pump beneath each well-drawn scene.

An unexpectedly enjoyable romantic comedy, Little Black Book steers clear of conventional contrivances and sugary idealism--without being down with love.

I hesitate to call it a 'good' movie, because much of it is useless. But overall, it feels just quirky and interesting enough to recommend it, albeit lukewarmly.

Murphy, who dazzled opposite Eminem in 8 Mile, seemed close to budding-starlet burnout after the dismal comedy Just Married. She bounces back in this one.

Surprisingly sharp, if convoluted, romantic comedy.

It has solid performances, genuine wit and a few surprises that more than make up for occasional lapses in plot and taste.

Gets stronger as it goes, acknowledging that nice people don't always behave nicely and that screwing things up can be the best way to learn what you need to learn.
