Brittany Murphy plays a young producer for a TV station in a dark comedy by director Nick Hurran.

The story involves Stacy Holt (Brittany Murphy), an associate producer for daytime talk show hostess Kippie Kann (Kathy Bates). The show is similar to a Jerry Springer type product.

Stacy is frustrated when her boyfriend Derek (Ron Livingston) refuses to discuss his past relationships. Holly Hunter plays Barb, a co-worker who helps Stacy pull names of past girlfriends from his Palm Pilot while he is away on business. The film is very funny and has many twists and turns as Stacy interacts with 3 ex-girlfriends. The most interesting is Joyce (Julianne Nicholson), the young chef who still has interest in Derek.

The whole thing comes to an exciting climax on the live TV show. I related to the film as it showed the workings of a real TV station, one similar to American Cablevision, where I hosted a community entertainment show for many years.
