I have always enjoyed G4's "Attack of the Show", and the extremely beautiful Olivia Munn has always been a big reason. I bought this book hoping it would be a collection of humorous essays in the vein of Sarah Silverman or Chelsea Handler. What a disappointment. I won't go to great lengths comparing the three women; I'll just say those two women are comics, and Olivia Munn is not. Olivia is primarily known for wearing sexy costumes and claiming to be a hot female geek.

Olivia goes to great lengths to make us feel sorry for her exclusion for different cliques starting in kindergarten. She comes off as completely self centered and unaware that this is a normal part of childhood. She also needs someone to tell her that nobody feels sorry for the ugly duckling once it has become a well paid, famous, frequently lusted after swan. Not exactly the tear jerker she seemed to think it would be. Revealing that she was a cheerleader and model during her school years also takes a lot of the sting out of her self pity.

Another annoying habit Olivia gives in to is revealing the ugliest traits of the nameless high powered Hollywood directors and producers she tried to court favors from in her early career. It astonishes me when a girl who jumps into giant pies in a French maid uniform for a very comfortable living whines about being pursued by the very men she has gone to great lengths to meet in hopes of having them forward her career. It's the natural order of things for her to take things from them, but offensive if they try to take things from her.

Format: Paperback
To be honest, I didn't give two figs about Olivia Munn either way when I sat down and read this book. Sure, I was aware of her co-hosting "Attack of the Show", she was on some sitcom for awhile (until it was cancelled) and I think I saw her on The Daily Show once or twice. Why would I read this book if my knowledge of her was so limited? Well, basically, it's because I get a guilty pleasure out of reading books written by celebrities (or ghost-written by other people with celebrities or vaguely looked at before a celebrity slaps their name on it) and, usually, the more useless a celebrity, the more unintentionally amusing the book. This book seemed like a prime candidate because it seemed like it would fit this last category so well. Olivia is a celebrity that is celebrated by geek culture, but for reasons that completely baffle me (maybe it's because I'm older and cool - which is not the target demographic for "Attack of the Show" and, ostensibly, Munn herself.)

From the first sentence of the introduction ("Yeah, so, I wrote a book.") to the closing line of the introduction ("f--- everybody who was ever mean to me"), I knew I was in for a treat because this was going to be a book with absolutely nothing to say for the next 288 pages. I got excited... and maybe even peed a little. Essentially, the book is broken up into three types of chapters: ones that are little anecdotes from Olivia's life, ones that pander to the geek crowd and ones that are total BS designed to waste paper. It would seem to me that most people would be interested in the first type, mildly amused by the second and totally baffled by the third.

72 of 90 people found the following review helpful By Eric E. Dolecki on July 8, 2010
Format: Hardcover
I wasn't expecting something that was outstanding in how it cleverly used the English language. I was expecting pretty interesting stories about her life, geekdom, and behind-the-scenes stories from her travels on the web, television and film. I think we get a tiny bit of that, but it's written so conversationally and with so many expletives that it turns out feeling coarse, thrown together, and not as interesting as it could have been. I've been a fan of Ms. Lovely for many years... I loved AOTS and she made it so much better. Yes, as a sex symbol, but also as a geek with a great sense of humor. None of that really seems to have come through in this book. It feels forced here... on television or video, it feels natural.

In short, if you're a fan you'll get something out of it. Not a whole lot. If you're not a fan, you're going to be turned off by it. I really wish it was better. I got a digital copy, so I paid less. I'm glad I did that, sorry Olivia :/

51 of 63 people found the following review helpful By Will the real KRISTIN WIIG please stand up... on September 13, 2010
Format: Hardcover
I got this book as a birthday present and at first it seemed kinda cool but then after reading through it gave me a clear idea of who she is...not really a geek but pretending to be so that she can use our demographic as her platform to fame. Grammatically speaking the title itself admits that. She 'geeks' over hollywood, not sci-fi. So the term "Hollywood Geek" is reflective of her obsession with wanting to be famous. The title "Geek in Hollywood" would have meant she was a sci-fi kid trying to make it in Hollywood. She's dumb, but not as dumb as you if you buy this book. If you are a fan boy and need to buy it because she made you think she really likes you then go ahead, but seriously this poor excuse for comdey writing will be in the bargain books section soon enough, so don't feel obliged to pay full price for pages that will end up suck together under the bathroom sink with your collection of Hustlers anyways.

(She should have called it 14:59, LOL.)
