In Uptown Girls, Molly Gunn (Brittany Murphy) is the toast of the New York social scene. The freewheeling daughter of a late rock legend, Molly is an "it girl" on top of the A-list - designers want to dress her, the most eligible bachelors want to date her, and her birthday bash is one of the hottest tickets in town. Her life is a never-ending party.
But when Molly's inheritance is stolen by her accountant, the party comes to an abrupt end. Molly is forced to do something she's never done before - get a job.
With the help of her best friend Ingrid (Marley Shelton) and A&R scout pal Huey (Donald Faison), Molly lands a position as nanny to the daughter of high-powered music executive Roma Schleine (Heather Locklear). Molly's new charge is Ray Schleine (Dakota Fanning), a precocious, uptight 8-year-old "going on 40" who's obsessed with germs and lives her life as perfectly as possible. Emotionally distant from her mother, Ray has grown up with a revolving door of nannies and too little stability, so she tries to control everything she can.
Molly has never needed to be a responsible adult. Ray has taken the weight of the world on her young shoulders.
They're about to teach each other how to act their age.
What the critics are saying:
"Murphy's performance has a kind of ineffable mischievous innocence about it."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"It may be junk food with high sugar levels, but the inspired teaming of rising young actress Brittany Murphy and precocious tot Dakota Fanning makes you forget those hazardous sweeteners."- Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter"Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning can't rise above a weak script in this riches-to-rags tale..."- David Foucher, Here Boston
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
