Uneven but pleasantly acrid romantic comedy.

...possesses too few positive attributes to even warrant a mild recommendation...

The best thing about this May December romance is Alex Baldwin, who gives a compelling performance as the publishing king who keeps a photo album of his ex girlfriends.

Why would you take a pretty cool title like The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing and sub in a generic, borderline-lame one like Suburban Girl?

A pleasant surprise. Sarah Michelle Gellar's best work; Baldwin is so good.

Suburban Girl never finds the charm it thinks it has.

January 23, 2008 Full Review Source:

Baldwin lifts the scenes he is in, with his brand of easy charm an antidote to occasional outbreaks of cheese in the script.

No better or worse than Steve Martin's Shop Girl, except it doesn't even have Jason Schwartzman to bring some laughs to the table.

Audience Reviews for Suburban Girl

Nice chick flick style movie with a darker theme and a bit of an ick factor watching Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alec Baldwin get together. (I mean, honestly, as well as being a control freak, the guy was over twice her character's age!). I did enjoy this movie though and liked the realistic end to it.

This movie was really dumb. I'm glad I was able to exchange it for something else...
