Editorial Reviews

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?

    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.

    I have always loved Hilary Duff. She is modest in all her videos and this movie is even safe for my 4 year old daughter to watch. I think there's 2 mild cuss words, so if your a vile person, don't buy. If you are single and on the lonely side, I definitely recommend watching this! It'll give you a boost and a message that Mr. Right isn't going to be perfect to make you happy.

    Wow! If you like good-looking men-this movie was full of them! Some of the storyline was a bit cheesy and weak in my opinion. Was NOT impressed with the scene where the girls play with the naked men cards. The scene was totally not needed and was senseless to the story. I liked the movie okay but it is not one of Hillary Duff's best movies.

    I have been a huge Hilary Duff fan ever since I was 9. I have been curious to see this movie ever since I saw commericals for it on ABC Family. Hilary Duff does not disappoint! Cast as the lead, Lane Daniels, Hilary brings a charming, sometimes clueless vibe to her character. Although Lane appears to be ditzy at times, she ends up coming off as more delightfully awkward than Paris Hilton-like. It is fun to see Lane's outtake on love and romance mature throughout the film. Hilary has certainly matured as an actress, and the result is an endearing film which is probably best for ages 14 and up, as it does contain some mature subject matter.

    At first I thought this was going to be a family film because it's a made for TV movie. I quickly found out that wasn't true like other reviewers have said the naked men go fish scene is totally unnecessary. The story line wash cheesy and boring. Reminded me of "How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days" but only not as good. Drove me crazy how Lane was supposed to be "undercover" but the way she dresses and decorate her office she stood out like a sore thumb. Also, when she interviewed for the job it seemed like she was going to be a business executive but she was an assitant which confused me. It was an okay movie but I wouldn't want to watch it again.
