Stacy Holt, an associate producer for a daytime talk show, is confounded by her boyfriend Derek's unwillingness to talk about his previous relationships. Egged on by her co-worker Barb, Stacy sneaks a look at his personal digital organizer, scores the names and numbers of his exes, and sets up interviews with them--all in an effort to get closer to her man. Her plan starts to unravel, however, when she becomes friends with one of the women. Written by
When Stacy (Brittany Murphy) confronts Barb (Holly Hunter) on-camera backstage, the monitor above their heads appears to flip the image, but it is not a monitor. It is the back of the projection screen from the main televised image that is the centerpiece of the "Kippie Kann Show" stage's back wall. See more »

[talking to Bob, the dog]
Can you just not look at me like that, please? It's making me very uncomfortable.
[Bob continues staring, not making a sound]
[puts Derek's "private things" box away]
See? I'm done. Okay?
[Bob still stares]
And don't judge me! Okay, Bob?

Although seen as superficial, this movie holds a lot more...
"Question: How does a girl who jumps, eyes open, down a rabbit hole, plummeting into chaos, come out the other end unchanged? The answer? She doesn't."
The movie starts off not with a joke, not with two people falling in love, but with a profound statement. This film, although sometimes dramatic, sometimes fun and sometimes heartfelt, holds more than just what lies on the surface.
With an amazing twist and pretty well thought out characters (some superficial and others that are quite the opposite), I found more in this movie than I thought I would. I sat down to watch a romantic comedy. And what I came away with was something to think about and a story that made me feel something more than just a bit of satisfaction-- I felt learned. I felt that someone was telling me something; wisdom was being shared.
Sit down with this one and don't just watch it. Think about it. Delve into what it's saying. And I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to see what it really has to offer...
