Okay so this is mostly about how I am ashamed of myself for watching ABC Family’s “Beauty and the Briefcase.” It sounded alright…. Hillary Duff, cute clothes, Matt Dallas, hilarious office shenanigans…
But, it turned out so very very wrong.
I really must say I watched it because of this particular guy:
who was on this particular show:
with this kid from “Glee”:
BUT what I didn’t expect is that although Matt Dallas was refered to as starring in this Movie. It really meant he was only in it for 5-8 minutes. And she never gave him a chance… to talk or anything. LAME!
What I found is that the character in this movie were highly improbable and at the same time unlikable. Hillary Duff is writing an undercover piece for Cosmopolitan Magazine about finding love with a professional man. As all she does is wear colorful clothing, drink with the guys from her office, and lament over a list concocted as a teenage girl to find the dreamiest guy. By the way her answer to dreamy guy is some dude with a foreign accent, who travels on a whim, and is suprising.
This is how I imagine him:
And on a bonus of a sidenote: All her and her friends talk about are men and sex while wearing hideous avocado masks, drinking wine in a box and eating junk food. Which is apparently exactly how girls act. And although she knows nothing about business, she tries to save the company with her trendy presentation skills. Even more lame.
Oh and she keeps referring to her “dream guy” as a “magic man”… this is all I could think of:
Yeah that is apparently all women do. I found this movie an exact copy of “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and “13 going on 30” without any of the depth. And these movies are not exactly deep. Not even her “I dress really cute” clothes could save this movie.
So if you want to watch a cute movie about a girl and fashion magazines, always go for Jenna Rink. Thank you for your time.
P.S. Why does ABC Family keep telling me its “a different kind of family”. It sounds like they are pedophiles.
