Though Molly's electricity has been turned off, she has no difficulty watching cartoons on TV the next morning and her answerphone is working. One of the deleted scenes included on the DVD shows Molly runs an extension cord through her apartment from another and plugs in the TV. While this is not part of the movie that we see, it is a perfectly valid explanation of what we do see. See more »

A movie that makes you feel better and better....and better
I actually saw this film by mistake, and couldn't help posting a comment here (which I actually think it's my first, but hey, it deserves it). I think it's a very thoughtful and sensitive movie, with plenty of funny but also moving scenes. Despite my better judgement, Brittany Murphy does a good job at playing the "confused" grown-up, while Dakota is a charming, if not absolutely fantastic grown-up "in the making". I think this movie is worth watching, at least, if not exclusively, for the terrific relationship between Ray and Molly. I had never expected to grow such fond of these "Uptown Girls"....
Watch it! It's worth your bucks!
