Movie Info

Flighty Emily "Jacks" Jackson (Brittany Murphy) works for the British edition of Vogue magazine. Rather than pursue a relationship, Jacks regularly hooks up with her devoted ex-boyfriend, James Wildstone (Elliot Cowan), and lives with Peter Simon (Matthew Rhys), a gay screenwriter. When Jacks meets Argentinian photographer's assistant Paolo Sarmiento (Santiago Cabrera), she assumes he is gay and tries to bring him and Peter together, unaware that Paolo is straight and in love with her.

Audience Reviews for Love and Other Disasters

  • Oct 02, 2010
    Brittany Murphy plays Emily 'Jacks' Jackson who's working in England as an assistant at Vogue and a wannabe matchmaker for her gay roommate and best friend Peter. Santiago Cabrera is Paolo Sarmiento, assistant to a famous gay photographer, and Jacks assumes Paolo is gay, and treats him like all the other gay guys she knows, running around in her underwear or inviting him into the bathroom to talk as she is taking a bath while attempting to fix him up with Peter. But we know right away that Paolo is not gay, and in fact is really interested in Jacks.

    Couldn't get this film a positive spin. It was very boring for me to watch...

    Extremely fun and funny romantic comedy with lots of quirky humour and great actors.

    think you've got to be in the right mindset for this one but if you're prepared to suspend your disbelief you can have a great time. If you like Ugly Betty then this is for you. But if you go in expecting War & Peace you're going to be disappointed. The clothes are great and there are some great performances from the likes of Dawn French and Catherine Tate. There are plenty of laughs and some brilliantly observed portraits of London types. Brittany Murphy is a luminous presence and although you get the message that she wants to channel Audrey Hepburn she sort of pulls it off. It's a step up from Love, Actually and Notting Hill and a lot more fun. Could the prominence of a gay story line be what seems to annoy some of the other reviewers here?
