Audience Reviews for Suburban Girl

  • Dec 01, 2010
    The young and beautiful Brett Eisenberg (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is an up-and-coming assistant editor embarking on her first big job in the New York City whose life becomes changed when she catches the attention of very attractive and charming Archie Knox (Alec Baldwin), the editor-in-chief for a successful publishing house. They are soon dating despite the fact that she already has a boyfriend and he has a long list of past girlfriends and ex wives and is a lot closer to her dad's age than hers. The lovers soon move in together despite the objections of various folks in their respective lives, though, as expected, it's an affair that's inevitably fraught with complications as Brett's father who she desperately clings to become sick, she got a mean boss to deal with and Archie admits to a few problems.

    Its not those movie about young women who fall for older man, well okay it is that exact storyline but with nice gesture at the end. I love Sarah Michelle Gellar, would watch her in any movie she is in. She did good, breakout from the tough role of Buffy; she is sweet and fragile. Alec Baldwin did light the scene he is in. I, like most people find it creepy for younger women dating older man more over twice her age! Overall better than I expected. 5/10.

    i really enjoyed this movie. i wasn't sure that i would simply because it was a straight to dvd film (as far as i know) and i had heard that it wasn't all that great. well i will never let that stop me from trying a film again because this is one of the sweetest & most romantically realistic movies i've seen. mostly i have to admit because of Sarah Michelle Gellar, if it hadn't been her, well i dunno if i would have liked it as much. she was wonderful, great acting, funny, endearing and i loved her decision at the end of the movie. i really liked how the movie was broken into sections with the little titles for each one, it made it unique and added a little extra something i thought. the soundtrack to this movie is good and goes well with all the events. i really liked it, SMG is amazing.

    Don't make short stories into movies...they're short for a reason.
