The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Unlucky in love, living at home with her eccentric mom (Kathy Baker, Cold Mountain, Cider House Rules, CBS’ Picket Fences) and stuck in a dead-end secretarial job, Sarah Jane McKinney (Leslie Bibb, the upcoming Zookeeper, ABC’s new fall series Good Christian Belles, Iron Man 1 & 2, Talladega Nights) longs for more out of life.
An unexpected promotion to junior executive appears to be just the ticket. But with her new responsibilities comes an entirely alien world of corporate intrigue and scheming executives—most notably dashing newcomer Milo Beeber (Brandon Routh, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, NBC’s Chuck, Superman Returns).
Sarah Jane is stuck in a secretarial job and hopes of going somewhere look really thin. When a junior executive position opens up, she takes a gamble and is awarded the promotion. Before she has a chance to settle in, though, her new post is overtaken by an outside candidate and she is demoted to his assistant. Making the best of the situation, she still sees Beeber as a possible romantic interest until a late night encounter ends in disaster. She is then awarded the position but she soon finds out the business isn't as glamorous as she thought it was and in order to get to the top you to have a little nasty in you.
As far as breaking any new ground "Miss Nobody" never does, there's a lot here that we've all seen before but that doesn't mean it isn't an enjoyable film. The film is fast paced and entertaining and Leslie Bibb is terrific as the lead, the supporting cast all do a wonderful job playing their roles but this is Bibb's film and she is in full command. "Miss Nobody" might not be original but between it's over-all silliness and having a cast that truly delivers the film maintains it's high level of entertainment until the very end. If you like a good dark comedy then I suggest picking this one up today. There's a lot to like here and the fun never stops. I also thought the ending was perfect for the film, sure you could of finished it off other ways but after all that happened in the film I felt really satisfied with the ending here. "Miss Nobody" is a little devilish, it's a bit romantic and it's a lot of mischievous fun.
