    Hilary Duff (A Cinderella Story) shines in this sparkling romantic comedy based on the book Diary of a Working Girl by Daniella Brodsky. Lane, a fashion journalist, gets the assignment of a lifetime when Cosmopolitan magazine hires her to write a story about finding love in the workplace. Posing as a corporate assistant, Lane finds herself torn between the office's eligible men in suits and a dashing stranger (Chris Carmack, The O.C.) who sweeps her off her feet. Will she find the "magic man" who fulfills her fantasy checklist, or will her story have an ending as unexpected as love itself? The appealing cast includes Michael McMillan (True Blood) and Matt Dallas (Kyle XY), with Emmy-winner Jaime Pressly (My Name is Earl) and the hilarious Jennifer Coolidge (Legally Blonde).

    I'm not going to rip Hilary Duff apart like a previous reviewer because I actually think she was about the best part of this film, hence the one star. It's fun and girly but I couldn't enjoy it because of the constant stereotypes (i.e. blonde girl enters the business world and doesn't know anything apart from how to utilize colour, as well as the consistent way the female characters judge men by their 'hot abs' or 'tight asses'). It just seems a bit sexist in terms of both the male and female characters and, while I know most chick flicks are like this to some extent, it has never been to the extent that I've felt the need to switch off. The English guy's accent is laughable. Why don't they just use English people to portray English people rather than people whose accent flips between Australian and American? The other characters besides Lane are pretty rubbish and wooden, including her best friend and more or less all the people she works with. The story, I guess, is light-hearted and cutesy, but if you have an ounce of intellect and don't assume that all women are bimbos whose specialist subject is coats and men's worth is assessed by the tightness of their buns, I suggest looking elsewhere. I was also a little concerned about the sexual references (i.e. painting each others bodies with chocolate and then 'burning it off' after one date, talk of climaxing etc.). Surely that's a bit much for a younger audience?

    Format: DVD
    This is a Hillary Duff made-for-TV movie, so I probably didn't come into Beauty & the Briefcase with particularly high expectations. However, they were met, and even exceeded some - for a romantic comedy. Working as an investigative journalist for Cosmo, Duff joins an investment banking firm to find an eligible bachelor in New York. There are some cute moments about having unrealistic expectations for a man. As with most romantic comedies, it's lighthearted and cheesy. Yet, unlike many, the protagonists - particularly Duff - come off as relatively normal, likable, and not pathetically desperate. Sure, they have their quirks and faults, but I never felt annoyed by their characters but rather sorry for them. Fun for date nights with a significant other.

    **Spoilers Alert**

    I did think the subplot with Liam was distracting. First of all, it was too obvious Duff's character wouldn't end up with him - he was TOO perfect. More importantly, it took time and attention away from the idea of dating in the business world. This theme could have been played up a lot more than what is actually captured in the movie. In fact, there are really 2 guys in the office who are really even "contenders." Instead, I could easily have imagined the "Liam" character changed into one of Duff's coworkers, but one who it turns out was engaged in shady stock deals or something. I reduced my rating by a star because there was just so much more comedic potential in mixing the women's fashion and men's business worlds.

    Hilary Duff's claim to fame was as a squeaky clean Disney star. She got her start there, and with that clean image, got lots of fans. Even after she left, she made some very family friendly films. Well, clean no more.

    Hilary has come a long way down from the days when she was nervous about her role in A Cinderella Story because it included kissing her co-star. In this movie, there are lots of sexual references, talking about past sexual encounters, and bad language. Hillary's character thinks nothing of hopping into bed after first meeting someone.

    I would give this zero stars if that were an option.

    I must confess that I don't know who Hilary Duff is, nor have I ever seen anything she's done before I watched this made for TV movie. So for me this was just another comedy/romance, it could have starred anyone and it wouldn't have mattered.

    The story involves a woman (Duff) who is obsessed with finding a "magic" man. At the outset, they make it clear that she will do and say anything to get one. She is equally obsessed with having an article published in Cosmopolitan magazine. To that end, she comes up with a scheme to bag a man and get her story at the same time. In the process, she gets a job under false pretentions, and sets about trapping some poor schnook. It's not complicated; she is an accomplished liar without a lofty goal. Unfortunately, she soon finds herself falling for the wrong guy, a guy who is an even bigger liar than she is. As to be expected, she takes offense at his lies while conveniently ignoring her own. Making this a comedy about a superficial woman with questionable priorities. In effect, a plot about the ends justifying the means. It's all good as long as you don't get caught and/or can charm your way out of your web of deceit. The morale of this story: you can do despicable things and ultimately be rewarded for your bad behavior. No surprise, she gets a guy (it could have been any guy as long as he was still breathing, she wasn't that picky).
