Plot: In Uptown Girls, Molly Gunn (Brittany Murphy) is the toast of the New York social scene. The freewheeling daughter of a late rock legend, Molly is an "it girl" on top of the A-list - designers want to dress her, the most eligible bachelors want to date her, and her birthday bash is one of the hottest tickets in town. Her life is a never-ending party.
But when Molly's inheritance is stolen by her accountant, the party comes to an abrupt end. Molly is forced to do something she's never done before - get a job.
With the help of her best friend Ingrid (Marley Shelton) and A an R scout pal Huey (Donald Faison), Molly lands a position as nanny to the daughter of high-powered music executive Roma Schleine (Heather Locklear). Molly's new charge is Ray Schleine (Dakota Fanning), a precocious, uptight 8-year-old "going on 40" who's obsessed with germs and lives her life as perfectly as possible. Emotionally distant from her mother, Ray has grown up with a revolving door of nannies and too little stability, so she tries to control everything she can.
Molly has never needed to be a responsible adult. Ray has taken the weight of the world on her young shoulders.

Heading uptown to hang out with these girls? Save the cab fare. There's no joy in spending even a minute in the company of the bickering Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning. They deserve each other. We don't deserve them.
