Steve Martin's script sneers at the vanity of fake LA girls and their plastic surgery. He is in no position to sneer.

For most women, finding a pair of black gloves on their doorstep would signal "Boston Strangler" rather than "man of my dreams!" and it is this sense of unintentional creepiness that asphyxiates Shopgirl.

A glum love story.

Meant to be bewitchingly graceful, instead comes off as half-asleep
June 21, 2007
I'm not entirely sure how it will play to a large audience, but it might have enough charm and wit, with a dash of complicated romance, to keep one entertained.

Hasn't the brightness of a romantic comedy nor the tristesse of melodrama.
October 11, 2006
Claire Danes has a gravitas and grace to her that hearkens back to starlets of the 1930s and '40s.

Rather than being a labeled a romantic comedy, Shopgirl is more of a coming-of-age drama

It's L.A. as it is today, brooding, at times thoughtful, frustrating, and populated by souls like and completely unlike Mirabelle Buttersfield.

May 4, 2006
Cutesy but never cute, syrupy but never sweet, sexual but never erotic.

April 23, 2006
The filmmakers put a good number of sweet, tender, appealing gestures into it...yet the movie comes off leaving one vaguely disappointed.

Desperta no espectador um sentimento de agradável melancolia, como aquele que experimentamos quando ouvimos uma melodia triste da qual gostamos muito.

This movie nails some of the truths about the L.A. dating scene that most other movies don't go near.
December 13, 2005
A horrible film bred from the isolation of a man at the top
December 9, 2005
Un film qui a tous les éléments à la bonne place et dans lequel Martin propose à nouveau un mélange élégant d'une formule qu'il connaît par c%u0153ur.

...More like a European film than Hollywood, but it's not a matter of transmitting on a frequency most Americans don't receive. It's a matter of information that's not there.

threatens to turn into the latest update of 'Pretty Woman' (but) an inescapable undercurrent of sadness flows through the movie and through its characters, which gives 'Shopgirl' a wistful, often downright bluesy tone.
November 25, 2005
Shopgirl is Steve Martin at his most philosophical. This romantic comedy is not like the usual Hollywood fare, but is an exploration of loneliness, isolation, expectations and reality. A bittersweet lovestory for thinkers.
November 24, 2005
The new movie, "Shopgirl," isn't nearly as slight as it sounds. It isn't a comedy, it isn't a "chick-flick," and it certainly isn't about shopping.
