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.

Audience Reviews for Suburban Girl

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.

Cute and witty. Gellar did a fine job and was looking pretty darn adorable. I think Gellar and Baldwin had some good chemistry too. Sweet little film.

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