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 »

Did you hear that, Bob? Derek left his Palm at home.

I saw this on DVD a couple of days ago and was pleasantly surprised. I have to say, Brittany Murphy is a good actress and she certainly holds her own in comedy situations. Though this is a comedy, she plays the character as the (semi) straight-man role and it makes the film, because it lets the other characters around her (like Holly Hunter, Kevin Sussman and Stephen Tobolowsky in particular) shine in some of the funnier parts. The use of the Carly Simon music throughout was a nice touch too, instead of the formulaic soundtrack of bubble-gum stuff a lot of other films use. The ending is especially good and makes this whole film worth checking out if you give it a chance. It starts a little slow but once the pace picks up, you'll be pleased you gave it a shot. Rent it when you want a different sort of romance tale.
