I’m no alchemist, but I think Hollywood finally found an empiric formula for Oscar gold with the way fun Brittany Murphy romp, “Little Black Book.” In a word: Brilliant! Two words: Fuck yeah!! Wow. I was fortunate enough to attend the premiere. I’m not talking advanced viewing. I’m talking Entertainment Tonight, roll out the red carpet, you’re gonna sit in assigned seats and applaud at names on the screen, premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre on 54th St in awesome midtown.
Here are some details about this wicked and non-vapid film spectacular. Brittany Murphy, an associate producer at a Jenny Jonesian tv program, accidentally *SPOILER!* writes herself into the show when hilarious situations arise out of the intrigue surrounding the content of her boyfriend’s little black book. She then *SPOILER!* gets hit by a bus and dies!! Cleverly enough, the propmaster, in collaboration with the writers, chose not to employ an actual little black book! Instead they used a silver Palm Pilot! Talk about a funny misnomer of a title!
I particularly loved the killer seats all the "Little Black Book" die-hard fans were ushered into. We had our choice between the immediate 3 rows in front of the 80 foot screen and the back 5 rows on the upper concourse. Keeping with the lightheartedness of the movie, Sony so humorously added a line to the invite saying no one under 21 or over 39 permitted! How did Kathy Bates get in?? Only kidding Kathy!
The free popcorn was fresh and not made the previous day. Attention: Page Six! Magician David Blaine and actress Josie Maran were definitely digging the popcorn as far as I could tell from my seat 100 yards away! Gelman from Regis & Kelly was going through tubs and tubs! Mmmm popcorn!
As expected before going in, the story was so fun that I couldn’t possibly think of 5 specific times when I wanted to kill myself during the film! Best non-person actor award goes to the farting dog. It really ripped the thunder out of Brittany’s scenes! Oh baby does this movie totally pay off at the end too. If someone said to me, “You can pick only one thing: Little Black Book over and over or self mutilation. What’s it gonna be?” I’d unhesitatingly take Little Black Book! It is--without a doubt--leaps and bounds superior to self mutilation!! This is a summer movie I just know you will all tolerate! The verdict is in: 10 out of 10!!!
