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.
Jennifer Love Hewitt and Joseph Lawrence knew each other prior to filming. They dated when they were teenagers. See more »
When Katya and her two friends are in an Indian Cafe, her friend is seen with a hookah (shisha) pipe in the mouth. However, when the shisha is shown by the camera, the terra cota cup is open. To smoke a shisha, that cup should be filled with tobacco, then covered by an aluminum foil, and topped with burning coals. See more »
Okay, is there anyone here that she hasn't slept on or is planning on marrying and divorcing?

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......
