    Just wondering if anyone has had the chance to see Shopgirl yet? I am a fan of the book and had high hopes and was not disappointed! I think that the cast is perfect and Schwartzman is hilarious. I highly reccommend!

    I did not know it was out yet. I remember reading the book on a plane and it caught the attention of the stewardess. She said it was funny and "naughty."

    Ha ha, well I think it is more funny than naughty - the book was good but it is a good movie too! Follows pretty closely. It is open all over the U.S. now.

    Good movie, creeps up on you rather than blows you away. Interesting chemistry between Claire & Steve Martin.

    Jason Schwartzman is great for a laugh.

    I was never a fan of Claire Danes, but I thought she did an awesome job in this film.

    How auto-biographcal did people think Steve Martin's role was?
    I think his character was very close to the actor himself.

    I have not seen the movie, but I have to say that I was not a fan of the book
