Beauty & the briefcase

A great romantic comedy movie starring the now turning gorgeous Hilary Duff.

The Story:
Lane Daniels (Hilary Duff) has a growing career and has a great future ahead of her as a writer. She's also trying to find love and her perfect guy (or as she called it as her 'magic man') according to the checklist she has made throughout her life. A checklist for the things she expects her "soul mate" or "perfect guy" to have.

Then when a pitch goes well at Cosmopolitan Magazine, she is given the chance of a lifetime to write an article for them about dating men in suits.

To complete this task, she must go undercover and date the guys at the office. After every date she writes it all down to help her final piece.

Talking about the checklist, I bet every girls out there has their own checklist for their perfect guys. I got it too! But somehow what Lane Daniels said in the movie is true:

"I've been walking around with the ghost of my magic man. He's been haunting me, keeping me from recognizing a world of opportunities that are right in front of me."

Honestly, my soon hubby-to-be is not even close to fit my checklist. (Ok, maybe 1 or 2...) But I'm happy & feel lucky ;)
My point is - screw the checklist!

Oh, my ratings for this movie: 9/10 ;)
