[O]ne of the worst romantic comedies of this or probably any other year. full review
It's no fun to side with Murphy's mean-spirited paranoiac, so we're soon rooting for the gynecologist to uncover a venereal disease, or for the chef to whip up some salmonella, or even for that Palm cradle to fall into the bathtub. full review
It's not well scripted enough or well acted enough to do much of anything, save make anyone watching really hate Brittany Murphy for being so annoying and so incredibly unlikely as a cute twenty-something Diane Sawyer wannabe. full review
If you think it's worth it to sit there for 97 minutes for three or possibly four laughs, then you are beyond help. full review
If it's hard to like the message and the characters in this movie, it's even harder to like the acting, though the casting is strong. full review
Treat this sucker like the actors should have done when they read the script: Kick it to the curb.
One of those annoyingly coy romantic comedies in which people try to improve their relationships by deceiving and investigating each other. full review
All Little Black Book offers is a pileup of sitcom scenarios overlaid with annoyingly glib narration, a la Sex and the City. full review
The jaw-droppingly nasty second act is intriguing, but it veers into territory so dark that it sucks the air out of the bouncy chick flick that surrounds it, making for one confused -- and confusing -- comedy.
A screechy chick-flick relationship comedy with a lot of things working for and against it -- mostly against it. full review
Starts as the playful romantic comedy, then veers into an ensemble piece about ruthless careerism before settling for melodramatic self-obsession. full review
Shrill and prone to annoying overstatement, Murphy poses the first of many problems with Little Black Book, a lame attempt to meld comedy, romance and satire.
Raises the question: When does a movie go from being an homage to being a parasite? full review
We assume this is going to be a routine career-girl comedy, and we're surprised when it moves deeper into its subject until finally it's a satirical comedy about television that invades some of the same territory as Network or Broadcast News full review
It's written more cleverly than you might expect, with occasionally funny one-liners ... and the good sense not to take itself too seriously most of the time. full review
Filled with poor excuses for human beings, who are supposed to be funny in their utter disregard for their fellow man. But they mostly come off as sadistic and cruel, which isn't a great recipe for knee-slapping comedy. full review
The movie's tone veers wildly from scene to scene before taking an unexpected turn in the final scenes. full review
