Product Description

Product Description

Based on Steve Martin's best-selling novella, and starring Golden Globe(R) winner Claire Danes (Best Actress In A TV Series, MY SO-CALLED LIFE, 1994), Golden Globe(R) nominee Steve Martin (Best Actor In A Motion Picture -- Comedy/Musical, FATHER OF THE BRIDE PART II, 1995), and Jason Schwartzman (BEWITCHED), SHOPGIRL is a disarmingly funny love story. Mirabelle, brilliantly played by Danes, is an aspiring artist working behind the glove counter at a Beverly Hills department store when she meets two very different men -- Jeremy (Schwartzman), a socially inept guy who doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and Ray (Martin) a wealthy entrepreneur who has the world at his feet. Filled with the mixed signals and missteps of a modern romance, SHOPGIRL is a fresh and witty, warm, and funny romantic comedy you can't help but fall in love with.

Mirabelle works at a fancy store

Selling gloves - oh what a bore

A struggling artist, always broke

Her social life's become a joke

She meets a guy at a Laundromat

They meet and greet, and then they chat

On their first date she pays her way

His telephone number gets chucked away

But then the loneliness sets in

She lets him take her for a spin

Out of the blue comes this guy Ray

A winning smile, and with cash to play

Completely swept right off her feet

She's never had it quite so sweet

Wining, dining, fancy clothes

And paying off the debt she owes

But then she takes stock of her life

Some day she'd like to be a wife

You know she'll choose one or the other

But neither one is worth the bother

The acting's great, the plot less so

Just people going with the flow

For rainy days it's worth the rental

Especially for the sentimental

I’m at something of a loss as to how to go about reviewing this particular movie. There's really no pigeon-holing Shopgirl, as it's just an odd mixture of drama and romance. It's definitely not heavy on comedy, so you'll need to look elsewhere if you want Steve Martin to make you laugh. Somehow managing to be both superficial and introspective, this film easily drew me in, but I never really felt comfortable in this world of lovers and choices. For me, there's just something unsettling about the whole thing; it plays like a special romantic episode of The Twilight Zone.

You've got to hand it to Steve Martin, though; besides writing the novella upon which the film is based (as well as the actual screenplay) and starring in the film, he gets to spend some quality romantic time with the always-enchanting Claire Danes. Good work, my friend. I think it is this May-November (I don't think Steve Martin quite deserves the December label just yet) relationship that bothers me a little bit, though – not that there's anything wrong with it. It's the nature of this specific relationship that I find troubling, for plot-related reasons it would be uncouth of me to reveal in a review.

This whole story really revolves around Claire Danes' character, Mirabelle Buttersfield. She's a young woman whose dreams of a fresh new start in L.A. have settled down into a life of boredom and disappointment. Selling gloves at Saks isn't exactly fulfilling, nor does it pay enough to start making a dent on all if Mirabelle's student loans. Not only is she lonely enough to go out with a really weird, grungy, hairy "artist," she's lonely enough to actually call him up after their first undeniably boring date.

I read some reviews about "Shopgirl", and decided to give it a try. It seemed like an entertaining romance, and I thought that the plot was promising albeit not overly original. What could go wrong? Unfortunately, a lot.

Yes, the story is interesting at first sight. Mirabelle (Claire Danes), a young woman that works at Saks but wants to be an artist, has to choose between two very different men that vie for her attention. One is Jeremy (Jason Schwartzman), a struggling musician that doesn't value her as much as he should. The other man is Ray Porter (Steve Martin), someone who is attentive but much older than Mirabelle, and that on top of that doesn't want a long term relationship.

What can Mirabelle do? And will we have a happy ending? Those two questions were uppermost in my mind during the first hour of this film. I ended up with answers to both questions, but I can't say I liked them. The ending was bittersweet at best, and I kept waiting for something else to happen. Needless is to say, it didn't.

On the whole, "Shopgirl" is a film based on a good idea, and has a cast of fine actors that give real life to their characters. That is specially true if we take into account Claire Danes' nuanced performance, as a shy and vulnerable woman who isn't comfortable with the choices life (and men) offer her. Despite all that, and strangely enough, this movie just doesn't work... Not recommended.

PS: I give "Shopgirl" 3 stars due to the fact that this film has some excellent scenes that you cannot help but like, but all the same I wouldn't watch it again.
