The character of Huey was originally written to be edgy, unlikeable and bossy; eventually his character was changed to be slightly lighter and more fun so that he seemed as if he would be someone Molly would be friends with. See more »
When Molly brings Neal up to her apartment, she ask him to wait in the hallway because the power is out in her apartment, there is no extension cord in the doorway at this time. When she comes back and opens the door to let Neal in you can clearly see the extension cord running on the floor through the doorway by her feet into her apartment. See more »

Everybody that knows Molly Gunn(Brittany Murphy) knows that she doesn't exactly act her age. She has never had a job, hardly cleans her apartment and sees the world through children's eyes(not to mention that she has a pig for a pet). But when her manager runs away and nobody is able to pay her bills, Molly is forced to get a job which turns out to be a babysitter to the very mature and jaded Ray(Dakota Fanning). Though at first, Molly and Ray don't get along, they slowly become good friends and teach each other how to act their age. This was a cute movie, nothing more and nothing less. The main reason that I enjoyed this movie was because of the incredibly adorable Ms.Fanning who is also an amazing actress. Brittany Murphy is a also a great actress but I think she should stop making sugary sweet comedies, they aren't really her thing. She is much better as the troubled mental patient. Anyways, even though this movie is sometimes misguided, it is still enjoyable and sweet. I would give Uptown Girls 6.5/10.
