Quotes

Lane: Love just doesn't happen to girls like me; girls who build their hopes on an intricate web of day dreams. The truth is that everyone has issues and maybe building up a fake, perfect man in my mind was my biggest issue of all. I've been walking around with the ghost of my magic man. He's been haunting me, keeping me from a world of opportunities that were right in front of me...
Lane: There's no such thing as perfection. Love is for people who are realistic and smart enough to open up their heart and ...

Has its moments; Hilary Duff's charisma keeps this one afloat
2 September 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

(Plot) A freelance writer delves for romance and delivers a story to the Cosmopolitan Magazine about finding true love in the workplace area. She decides to go undercover to find out what it takes at a finance company

I actually didn't mind it for what it was. With a title like Beauty & The Briefcase; what do people expect?! Hilary Duff has had a bit of a polarizing experience when it comes to movies. I've always liked Hilary. She's absolutely adorable, and manages to overcome weak scripts with pizazz a lot of the time, and here is no different. This is a made for T.V film, so it's not all that great. But watching Hilary Duff strut her stuff was very enjoyable to watch. Yeah. I dig her, sue me. The only thing that got on my nerves was her constant use of the word "Magic Man" Will I ever find my magic man? They overdid that whole thing in my opinion, and it got a bit repetitive, but that's a minor carp. The rest of the cast do what they have to do adequately

Final Thoughts: See it for Hilary Duff. She is the sole reason as to why this movie is fairly enjoyable. It's cute and innocuous stuff that will put a smile on your face if you manage to groove to the plot. Worth a look

5.5/10
