: : : Uptown Girls
===Story=== Brittany Murphy uses her ditzy/sexy combination to maximum effect in ''Uptown Girls''. Molly Gunn (Murphy) is an heiress living off the estate of her dead rock star father--until an unscrupulous accountant embezzles everything and Molly has to get a job. After a failed attempt at retail work, Molly finds herself as the nanny for a prematurely humorless and rigid little girl named Ray (Dakota Fanning, ''I Am Sam''), whose music mogul mother Roma (Heather Locklear) hardly ever sees her. Meanwhile, Molly woos an English musician who's trying to get a record contract from Roma. Unsurprisingly, Ray teaches Molly to take some responsibility for herself, while Molly gives Ray the opportunity to become the child she is--but despite the formulaic quality of the story, the two actresses play off each other well, and something unexpectedly touching emerges. Also featuring Marley Shelton (''Sugar & Spice''). ''--Bret Fetzer'' ===DVD Features=== *Color *Closed-captioned *Widescreen *Dolby
