    Here's a comedy of punishing tedium that pretends to be hip when it's so five minutes ago. show more

    Hunter is far too talented to waste her time with such mediocre material, as is co-star Kathy Bates, who plays Kippie Kann, an overbearing talk-show host. show more

    "Working Girl," is also heard in Little Black Book; it serves only to remind audiences of that far more winning story of triumph in the office. But there are many reminders of what a tiresome effort this is. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Looking for plausibility in a farce is like looking for a million dollars in a box of breakfast cereal, but elements of real life can make a comedy resonate instead of thud. Little Black Book does the latter. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    A screechy chick-flick relationship comedy with a lot of things working for and against it - mostly against it. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The long closing sequence is virtuoso, redefining what went before and requiring Murphy to become a more complex character than she gave any hint of in the opening scenes. show more

    Robert K. Elder Chicago Tribune

    Though trailers for Little Black Book try to sell it as a zany romantic comedy, don't judge this book by its cover. Those who stick with it will be surprised and maybe even laugh in between a tear or two. show more

    Janice Page Boston Globe

    Actually an above-average farce, at least as featherweight chick flicks go. show more
