Fans of the Weisberger's earlier book, the blockbuster bestseller THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, will be sadly disappointed in this SEX AND THE CITY look-alike. Three friends, pushing 30, are each looking for Mr. Right--and failing. As Lily Rabe individualizes each character, her tone, pace, and accent make each friend unique. Emmy, who will do anything to please, is dumped by her boyfriend for a younger woman. Leigh is an ambitious, driven book editor. Adriana, the most interesting character, is a Brazilian bombshell. While Rabe manages to hold together the directionless plot, she can't save a story line that relies too much on sexual details and on humor that falls flat.
