Critic Reviews for Little Black Book

All Critics (110) | Top Critics (34)

[O]ne of the worst romantic comedies of this or probably any other year.

Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

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.

Village Voice
Top Critic

It's not well scripted enough or well acted enough to do much of anything, save make anyone watching really hate Brittany Murphy for being so annoying and so incredibly unlikely as a cute twenty-something Diane Sawyer wannabe.

If you think it's worth it to sit there for 97 minutes for three or possibly four laughs, then you are beyond help.

If it's hard to like the message and the characters in this movie, it's even harder to like the acting, though the casting is strong.

A dud, mostly serving to remind us of the other, better movies that it wants to be when it grows up.

Audience Reviews for Little Black Book


I don't know why so many people on this site have said this movie was rubbish, it led me to wonder if i had watched the same film as everyone! Little black Book is one of those rare movies that really touches you. The ending is simply superb and I did not see it coming. The concluding scene was really tense but the writers still managed to bring humour into it! Ireally enjoyed this movie> Brittany Murphy does an excellent job as the main character and portrays her very well. This movie has everything a romantic comedy needs romance, humour, a great plot and superb acting, don't be put off by other comments, watch it and see for yourself how good it is!

Watched this a few times now. I guess technically not what you would call a great movie, but so likable and I really liked how the ending showed a happy ending without a man to fix everything. Brittany singing is a little cringable at times, but that's the worst I could say about this.

I really... really hoped this movie will be a great movie... Especially I started to like Brittany Murphy because she's could be the next America's Young Sweetheart u know... But the star in this movie isn't her, but Holly Hunter... I think she's saved this movie... Even the idea for the movie wasn't bad, but it's still horrible to me.... And the acting weren't emotionally in some scenes... But this movie could entertaining as well because of the 'Kippie Kann Do!!" thing... I thought it was funny...
