Like Working Girl and Broadcast News, this deviously funny comedy doubles as workplace satire and anthem to the American career woman, with perky Brittany Murphy as a young go-getter learning the ropes at a tabloid talk show. After she discovers the names of her boyfriend’s old lovers, her professional mentor (the sublime Holly Hunter) goads her into investigating and then meeting the women. British TV veteran Nick Hurran makes his Hollywood debut directing a clever and heartfelt script by Melissa Carter and Elisa Bell; with Ron Livingston, Julianne Nicholson, Kathy Bates, and Stephen Tobolowsky. PG-13, 105 min.
