DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy (Dark) - This movie is listed as a romantic comedy but there's actually very little that's romantic. I would say it's more of an adult comedy due to its sexual references. This is probably not a movie you'll want to take your young teen daughter to see. It's not that this movie has a lot of bad content because it doesn't, but I believe it has more that it appears to have and that's what we try to make sure you are aware of. So be sure to read the detailed movie content section.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's hard to figure who defines "Little Black Book's" target audience. Those in search of a love story may be put off by the movie's flippant tone and lack of resolution, and those who want a comedy won't appreciate the serious detour taken by the screenplay two-thirds of the way through. It's likely that "Little Black Book" will briefly bob to the multiplex surface before foundering and going under. And, if that is the film's ultimate fate, I can't argue with it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good I think Brittany Murphy is a great deal more talented than some people do. She hasn't had the roles yet to prove it, but she is a born movie star. The movie is every bit as cynical as "Network" but at the same time engenders a sweet onscreen romance, although not between the people we anticipate.

USA Today Full Review
Average ...there are some funny lines and situations, and Murphy makes the most of them, a substantial improvement over her last attempt at comedy, the dreadful "Uptown Girl." The movie's shocking revelation: Snooping can come back to bite you. Fortunately, there's a bit more to it, thanks to a little twist ending that's mildly entertaining. All in all, this "Little Black Book" is a textbook chick flick.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 188 moviegoer opinions. The opinions are very mixed. About a third loved it, another third thought it was only fair to average and a third rated it as "Very Good" to "Excellent." With such mixed opinions it's a little hard to predict just who will enjoy it. What I look at is how many rated it "Very Good" or higher. I figure these people truly enjoyed it. A little better than half gave it this rating so that's your probability of truly enjoying it. Fortunately, better than half of the remaining ones rated it "Good," which indicates an average to slightly above average movie, which isn't too bad. And all but a few of the remaining ones rated it "Fair," which is getting pretty low, but not terrible.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In Little Black Book, Stacy Holt (Brittany Murphy), an associate producer for daytime talk show hostess Kippie Kann (Kathy Bates), is frustrated when her boyfriend Derek (Ron Livingston) refuses to discuss his past relationships. With the encouragement of her co-worker Barb (Holly Hunter), she delves into his Palm to learn about his ex-girlfriends. Using the show as a ruse and Barb as her guide, Stacy interviews and befriends them, only to discover that the past, in a few instances, is rather present.

A modern day immorality tale of snooping in the electronic age, Little Black Book asks the question: Have you ever been tempted to go where you shouldn't? 

Further, it delves into the consequences of what can happen to you when you succumb to temptation.
