Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Eliza: Discussing your six-figure salary will only make him feel discontented with his lot.
Katya Livingston: He lives in a shack with no air conditioning, TiVo, or DSL. I don't think I could make him feel any more discontented than he already is.

Very clichéd but fun
4 June 2007 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a woman who does everything to climb up the social ladder, and pretends to be someone who she isn't.

I bought this film for 1 pound, and it was not even second hand. Hence, I did not have much expectations for it.

It is obvious that this is made for TV. The close ups are too close that the face occupies 95% of the screen. The way the camera moves between Frangiapani and Katja in the Indian restaurant looks more like a soap opera than a film. The film is so full of cliché. The obligatory gay friend who is constantly suicidal is too over the top that is almost derogatory.

Despite all these shortcomings, I confess that I enjoyed the film. It is fun, brain-off film that makes you forget your troubles. Jennifer Love Hewitt looks stunning in the film. It's a comedy that works!
