Michael Lange directs this wacky comedy about Jocelyn (Dominique Swain), a young underpaid intern at an ultra-hip fashion mag, Skirt, who miraculously rises from the mailroom to the boardroom. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
This is one of those cheap movies where the camera is hand-held but I gotta say that I actually liked it. It had it's good, funny moments and even though I'll robably forget it in a week or so, I still prefered it to doing homework.
Can you review a movie by just pointing to the two scenes of women barfing into baskets as the hallmark moments? While the film had its clever, witty moments, it was generally banal, self-absorbed and not very entertaining. Dominique Swain as our heroine, Jocelyn, was great. Pretty, passionate and almost the only saving grace. Many senior cast members failed their roles miserably. The screenwriter had no clue about how to carry the story from beginning to end. The director just muddled this mess even more. The editing is slapdash and too quick in parts way to slow in others. While it is rated not for children, its only appeal might be to a few snobbish 12-yr olds, but this is not a film for discriminating adults either. It fails to entertain or educate - I'm not sure what the studio hoped to do.
