Beauty and the Briefcase (2010)

dir. Gil Junger

Pretty standard tale of a woman growing close to a man under false pretences, only to realise that real feelings are blooming. This time, Hilary Duff plays an aspiring fashion journalist, who sort of falls into a job at a faceless corporate enterprise. Her intention is to date businessmen, presumably to pad out some pointless article about what it’s like being in a relationship with someone who owns a suit, but she slowly begins falling for her boss. He begins falling for her, too, as she shows her various skills – such as wearing bright, clashing clothes that are wholly unsuitable in a business setting, or adding colour to pie charts. In short, they have nothing in common, but because “opposites attract”, all the deception and manipulation is quickly forgiven and they fall in love forever and ever. Happily ever after!
