Comedy and betrayal outdo romance in this story about a woman Stacy Holt (Brittany Murphy) who goes in search of her boyfriend’s exes to find out if he lied to her about them. One twist that floored me was the deceit of people who one might call friends, and how some people take art to the extreme sometimes.
While I enjoyed the intrigues, my most interesting moment was when she met Carly Simon (who sang “Nobody Does It Better," the theme song for the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me) and passed out. She had been on the phone with her mother before she fainted so Carly had to take the phone and identify herself to the mother after explaining to her that her daughter had just fainted. And on hearing the singer’s name, the mother passed out as well.
I must confess, I googled up Carly Simon because I wanted to know what she had done in this life that could cause two people to idolise her this much. Forget fiction or movie, there had to be a premise for that scene. What I found amazed me. This lady was doing a lot of the things I only dreamed of doing. She’s a singer-songwriter, musician and children author. Now think about this, maybe, just maybe, you decided to do exactly what you always wished to do, someone might one day dream of meeting you the way you are dreaming of meeting someone who’s chased after their dreams and achieved.
There’s no mountain higher than your desire. The same dreams you have someone somewhere has had them and gone on to achieve them. Don’t be afraid that you’ll get to the top of the mountain and then have nothing more to conquer. The truth is, when you get to the top, you have a view of the horizon, and I tell you, it will be filled with even more mountains to overcome. So don’t be scared, climb this mountain of promises with the rope of desire and diligence. One day soon, someone will have a dream answered by meeting you, his icon, face to face.
