Storyline

Social satire based on the best-seller by Adele Lang humorously chronicles the life of Katya Livingston, a self-centered, obnoxious and conceited 28-year-old ad sales exec who won't let anything or anyone stand in her way in getting to the top of the San Francisco social ladder. When tax inspectors question her claims Katya is forced to keep a financial diary and finds time to add details about her friends, enemies and lovers all from her unique point of view.

Pretty good, for a JLH movie
10 July 2006 | by carlarinaSee all my reviews

I usually detest Jennifer Love Hewitt. Especially after the horrid "The Truth About Love" which I (very unfortunately) happened to watch.

But I must say I was pleasantly surprised by Ms Hewitt in this movie. It wasn't so bad, and in fact, was pretty good if I might add. The movie doesn't make any pretensions about what it's supposed to be i.e. a good, funny, light-hearted piece of fluff. Didn't feel like a made-for-TV movie at all too. I watched it when I was feeling kinda down and it actually did the trick.

Watch it for the air-headed humor, JLH's wardrobe (which fully capitalised on her "bosom buddies", as always), and the zippy dialog.

Oh..and the scene at the fountain with Katya and Charles was really really sweet. Rather believable too. Now, if only I can be as witty as Katya Livingston when I'm sitting at the fountain, munching on a hot dog with my ultimate dream guy......
