Editorial Reviews

Brittany Murphy (don't Say a Word) and Dakota Fanning (I Am Sam) shine brighter than all the lights of Manhattan in this delightful New York fairy tale. Co-starring Marley Shelton (Never Been Kissed), Donald Faison ("Scrubs") and Heather Locklear ("Spin City"), Uptown Girls will make you laugh, cry and laugh again! Molly (Murphy) is a partying rock 'n' roll princess whose money just ran out. Ray (Fanning) is a fussy nine-year-old girl whose last nanny just ran out. Only Ray's way-too-busy mom (Locklear) could think that hiring Molly would be the perfect setup for both girls. But as this unlikely pair faces everything from control issues (Ray's, of course) to temper tantrums (Molly's, of course), they discover that sometimes your best friend can come from the place you least expect!

4.0 out of 5 stars A formula film that pulls together a pretty good ending February 20, 2004
In terms of the basic plot "Uptown Girls" is totally predictable. Molly Gunn (Brittany Murphy) is a spoiled little rich girl who needs to grow up when she is forced to go out and get a job for the first time in her life. Ray Schleine (Dakota Fanning) is an 8-year-old even littler little rich girl who is not only a hypochondriac and wise beyond her years but who needs to learn how to be a kid. Of course circumstances throw them together when Molly becomes Ray's nanny. There is the comic period of butting heads, the tentative beginnings of friendship, the point at which things blow up big time, and the heartfelt reconciliation. But one of the reasons that formula films like this continue to be made is because more often than not they work. The result is not a great film, but an enjoyable one where the best part of the film is the finale, where between them writers Julia Dahl, Mo Ogrodnik, Lisa Davidowitz and Allison Jacobs come up with a creative way of bringing together major plot elements.
The twist with Molly Gunn is that she is the daughter of a rock 'n' roll legend, guitarist Tommy Gunn. Her parents were killed in a plane crash when she was about Ray's age and she has been living off the residuals. In her apartment there is a shrine in which all of her father's guitars are displayed, including the one on which he wrote his biggest hit, "Molly Smiles," the song that Molly can no longer bear to here. Molly might be spoiled, but she has a kind heart and not a mean bone in her body. When her accountant steals all of her money and disappears she has her friends, Ingrid (Marley Shelton) and Huey (Donald Faison), who stay true and try to help her survive in the real world (I liked not having to do deal with her friends forgetting her now that she is broke).

5.0 out of 5 stars Uptown Girls August 8, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
This was one of the sweetest films about relationships with friends,family and especially between a mother-daughter-nanny. I bought this for my own and sent one to my daughter, her nick name is RAE and so with our relationship it seemed to touch our hearts in the same way. She got it on her birthday and told me ...yes, it made her cry. The ending song during the credits " TIME" is so touching I cry everytime I hear it. I recommend this to any mom & daughter who has had a tough time of it growing up. It will show forgiving and moving on ... perhaps fixing a broken relationship or touching it in a special way to open the door for forgiveness ?

I watch it whenever I need a boost of love.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Uptown Girls" is a very enjoyable movie January 11, 2007
By Jeaner
"Uptown Girls" focuses on the friendship that develops between Ray (an 8 year-old going on 30) and Molly, her nanny, who acts her shoe size rather than her age. For those who have not seen this movie, it may appear corny or designed for a younger audience; however, it is much more of an adult film than it may outwardly appear. In her usual fashion, Dakota Fanning gives an outstanding performance, with an aptitude for acting well beyond her years. Ray and Molly's disparate personalities result in many clashes, but eventually they teach each other how to act their age - a very important life lesson.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brought a smile to my face August 25, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Brittany Murphy has skills beyond her pretty face and in "Uptown Girls" she is met step for step by the young Dakota Fanning. Brittany's Molly Gunn has been living off of the residuals from her dead Rock-Star father's legacy when she discovers that her accountant has run off with her whole fortune. Young Dakota portrays Lorraine "Ray" Schleine, a pre-teen with a music business Mom and a Dad in a coma. Heather Locklear, as Ray's Mom, is appropriately pretty, bitchy and ruthless. She is also completely uninvolved in Ray's upbringing. Molly needs a job, Ray needs a Nanny - presto - you've got a movie idea. But the movie stretches the formula in a way that kept my attention throughout. Molly has never been responsible her whole life - it appears that rather than ever do ANY laundry she just buys NEW clothes and Egyptian Cotton sheets. Left alone to herself, Ray has no part of "fun" in her little-girl life. The movie has some nice things to say about balancing "fun" and "responsibility" and about the nature of relationships. It's not "Casablanca", but I liked it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is Brittany Murphy the new Sandra Bullock? November 1, 2004
By Meesha
She has the similar ditzy, but loveable quality about her, that is one of the more endearing qualities about Sandra Bullock. She acts goofy, but she's very smart.

This is an OK movie, not great, but not bad either, the ending sums it all up perfectly, and redeems the movie a little better. I found Dakota Fanning's character extremely annoying, health conscious, shows signs of OCD and precocious! She gets better towards the end of the movie. (She comes across in the extras as having a very old head on young shoulders, which I suppose is to be expected in that business. You do wanna slap at times!) Also Jesse Spencer's accent, is it Australian, or is it English? (Hasn't he grown up since Billy Kennedy in Neighbours? Er, not really!) Brittany's best friends in the movie, aren't really best friends at all, and their characters are not very well developed.

Brittany Murphy plays these characters very well, that she's done in most of her movies, and you can quite imagine that she doesn't have struggle, as the characters are pretty much her! One of her roles that aren't 'her' so to speak is Daisy in Girl, Interrupted. She's apparently really different in Clueless, but I've never seen that!

You'd be forgiven for mistaking the fact this movie is all about a romance between Jesse's & Brittany's characters. In fact, he has very little to do with her, apart from a couple of scenes. There's a lot more to their 'relationship' that was cut, and is featured in the deleted scenes, including some dodgy looking bedroom scenes.

Everything about this film screamed COMEDY. The DVD cover. The trailer (swinging door!). The leading lady. The title. The tagline 'They're about to teach each other how to act their age'.
