Although [Brittany] Murphy and [Dakota] Fanning click, the rest of the movie doesn't click with them and actually gets in the way of this delightful pairing.

Saucereyed and hedgehog-haired, Brittany Murphy thinks, wrongly, that she is adorably kooky as the party girl.
November 7, 2012
The sheer charisma of the performances - from a screwball Murphy and a caustic Fanning - manages to float a sentimental script that frequently fizzes where it should pop.

A lame, predictable comedy.
January 7, 2010
Fanning practically dares the audience to throw sharp objects at the screen with her thoroughly obnoxious performance.
April 29, 2009
Brought down with emotional manipulation, melodrama, and just a bi-polar mood.

'El resultado es bastante mediocre, pues la cinta es bastante predecible y francamente aburrida'

...an incredibly formulaic setup that would be more at home in a made-for-TV movie starring Patricia Heaton and that little girl from Seventh Heaven.

Whether you buy Uptown Girls or not will depend on whether you're willing to go along with its utterly contrived and formulaic plot.

What communicative compromise is there [for Yakin] to go from personal, gritty and well-made films, to such a vapid commercial plea?

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning can't rise above a weak script in this riches-to-rags tale; "Uptown" is low-rent.

Though I found Mr. Yakin's direction unexpectedly imaginative, and the script often incongruously subtle, I couldn't get into the spirit of all the whimsy, the reason being the surprising lack of charm in the two leads.
