Funny, witty great movie
Verified purchase
I'd seen this film years ago and loved it! When I saw that it was available on prime video for purchase at a very good price I decided to add it to my digital collection its a very funny, witty film, Brittany Murphy is great as a young woman learning how to live in the real world after her inheritance is stolen, she ends up nannying a neurotic young girl who knows more about the real world than she does! But Brittany's character teaches the young girl how to be a kid x lots of great actors, humour definitely a "chick flick" a must see for any Brittany fan

A Wonderful and Heartfelt

"Uptown Girls" is a wonderful film; sweet, warm and Funny - with setiouse topics.
Brithanny Murphy and Dakota Fanning both shines in this film, and their on screen chemestry is just magical.

"Uptown girls" is a moving film on many emotions.
I think everyone who watch it melts, because it is so heartfelt and sweet. It make you belive in the best in people.

I have watched this movie many times, but it never gets old.
It is so sad that B. Murphy is no longer with us.
She was a wonderful actress and human being that shines whenever She is on the Big screen.

I reccomend "Uptown girls" to every B.Murphy and D.Fanning fan.
I also reccomend it to those who like Romantic comedys with a strong main Story that is not Romantic, but rather dramatic and sad.
But of course: "Uptown girls" has a happy ending.

I really enjoyed 'Uptown Girls'. Young Dakota Fanning was one of the best ever child actors, hugely talented, and her performance here is a delight. Brittany Murphy was really good too and I was very sad to learn that she died of pneumonia just a few years after starring in this film. I look forward to watching it all over again before too long.

I really enjoyed the film, but when I first watched I had to get the disk cleaned a few days later because the disk got stuck. So I had to wait a little longer to watch. Everything was fine after that. I got really got into the film and would encourage anyone to watch.
