    SHOPGIRL (DVD) – Contrasting two jerks – one that’s a rich and and one that’s stupid. One tries to make her better, and the other is made better by her. The only thing that really bothers me is Mirabelle’s blonde nemesis, Lisa, from Saks. It just feels like it was slapped in by the studio, directed by someone else. It’s that the scenes with Lisa that take me out of the movie, both that first scene in the cafe that turns the film into a failure on the Bechdel Test. Clair Danes and Jason Schwartzman are good together in this, even if his character makes me cringe much of the time he’s initially on screen
