A reporter's dream of becoming a news anchor is compromised after a one-night stand leaves her stranded in downtown L.A. without a phone, car, ID or money - and only 8 hours to make it to the most important job interview of her life.
Meghan Miles is a TV correspondent who works at a local Tv station. She gets an opportunity to work at a network. She goes home to celebrate with her boyfriend. Her friends show up to celebrate with her. But they find her despondent. It seems like her boyfriend left without saying good bye and the network is leaning towards someone else. Her friends convince her to go out and get drunk. They get her to put on a hot dress. She eventually gets so drunk that a guy offers to take her home but she prefers to go to his place. And she spends the night. When she wakes up she gets s call telling her that the network is reconsidering her so she has to go to work but her car was towed away and her wallet which in her purse is also in it. And she left her phone at the guy's place. She then finds herself wandering around downtown LA and runs into drug dealers and people think she's a hooker. So she has to find a way get to work. And even the police are after her. Written by
Before watching this movie I didn't really know what to expect, I only decided to watch it because of Elizabeth Banks; however I'm so glad that I did!
It is amazingly funny and entertaining. It's such an enjoyable watch and sweet movie, full of LOL moments.
People who criticize it for being what it is kind of confuse me, it's obvious what it is from the advertisements, so why watch it if it's just a 'silly and stupid' film?It is a lot more than that, it is clever and witty with some excellent lines and references throughout. Even the opening is hilarious.
Ultimately, this is a hilarious film, which is a lot cleverer and funnier than people seem to say. It does not receive the credit that it deserves.
It's definitely worth a watch. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm pretty sure you will too, if you accept it for what it is, an extremely clever, witty and funny film with a great lead actress.
Be well ;)
