This movie is an incredible example of a friendship between an adult and a child, and how adults can learned from the young people in their lives. It's a bad example of a chick flick because the romance takes a total back seat to the relationship between Brittany Murphy's and Dakota Fanning's characters. It's a story about two young women figuring out life, and grappling with death. It's so powerful and incredibly underrated!

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even die a little inside... But it's worth it ????

A comedy that tries to be serious, to the point where I found myself spending far more time feeling sad than laughing.

An alright movie. Not that great.

Unbearably obnoxious adult coming of age tale seemingly directed at preteen girls.

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning are cute together, but this was a lot heavier than I expected. The ending was very cheesy too, but otherwise it's not bad movie. (First and only viewing - 7/6/2015)

I personally love this movie from when I was younger, but re watching it now I can see why it got bad reviews. Very silly and odd

Murphy is good, fanning is a little bitch, the music is somber, and everybody cries a lot. Not exactly my kind of movie.

An easy-to-watch movie, and exactly as predictable as you'd expect. Good for a Saturday afternoon.

In a regular day, my best friend was watching this movie, and I was wondering what she thought of it as I get curious about things like this. My best friend says that she loves it which I was wondering if I should watch it and then she said yes. I was worried about Uptown Girls because it has bad reviews, and the trailer didn't made it better either. So I tried to ignore those and just watch the movie with an open thought. In a surprising moment, I actually liked it, I didn't love it like my best friend did, but I like it. At first with the beginning, I was hating the main characters and was finding them a bit annoying, but when the movie keeps going, I was starting to grow on them. I was a bit bothered that with Dakota Fanning's character, she don't like touching things because of germs, but there were moments that she was touching things that people already touch. The plot is formulaic, and the beginning was a bit hard to sit through. The middle and end got better however, it was funny, and the chemistry between Molly and Ray is good. I'm genuinely surprised that I even like the movie and my best friend's recommendation of movies are getting better from a bad start like Romeo And Juliet, to a masterpiece like Gone Girl, I was actually interested in Gone Girl until she said that it's amazing film which got me excited more for it, to a good movie like Uptown Girls.

Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning star in the fun, lighthearted comedy Uptown Girls. When the daughter of a former rock star loses her trust fund she's forced to take a job as a nanny for a rigid, uptight 8-year-old girl. The story is rather formulaic and the characters are a little cliche, but Murphy and Fanning have great chemistry together and are able to elevate the material. Additionally, the film has a nice message about the trails and bonds of friendship. Uptown Girls is pretty much a by the numbers buddy comedy, but there's also some charm to it too.

Quick movie. Lacks depth. Cute through and through.

A touching ending. I think Dakota Fanning acted a hundred times better than Brittany Murphy!

Nothing special, but actually watchable.

Predictable, boring, and wastes the talent of Boaz Yakin, Uptown Girls is a boring film and Dakota Fanning is an annoying brat.
