Little Black Book is a 2004 romantic comedy film directed by Nick Hurran and starring Brittany Murphy, Ron Livingston, and Holly Hunter. The film follows Stacy Holt (Murphy), a young woman who starts working as a production assistant for a talk show that specializes in exposing cheating partners. During her time there, she becomes obsessed with her boyfriend Derek's (Livingston) ex-girlfriends and decides to use her job to investigate them, secretly videotaping them and putting them in her Little Black Book.

As Stacy continues to delve deeper into Derek's past, she begins to discover some uncomfortable truths about his relationships, and soon finds herself questioning their own relationship. Alongside this, she starts to form bonds with some of the women she's investigated and decides to help them get closure on their past relationships.

Despite its lighthearted premise, the movie tackles some deeper themes surrounding relationships, trust, and the ethics of spying on others. Much of the movie's humor comes from the awkward situations that arise from Stacy's investigations, as she tries to juggle her work, relationships, and newfound obsession with uncovering secrets.

Brittany Murphy delivers a standout performance as Stacy, imbuing her character with a mix of vulnerability and determination. Ron Livingston is also endearing as Derek, despite his somewhat shady past, and the two have believable chemistry on screen. Holly Hunter steals the show as Barb, Stacy's tough-as-nails boss who teaches her some valuable life lessons throughout the film.

The film also boasts a strong supporting cast, with performances from Kathy Bates, Julianne Nicholson, and Rashida Jones. The soundtrack, which includes songs from artists like Carly Simon, The Supremes, and Alanis Morissette, adds to the film's romantic comedy vibe.

Overall, Little Black Book is an enjoyable romantic comedy with some surprising depth. Although it may not be groundbreaking, the film's strong performances and timely themes make it a worthwhile watch for anyone interested in the intricacies of relationships and modern dating.

Little Black Book is a 2004 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 51 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3 and a MetaScore of 36.
