A reporter's dream of becoming a news anchor is compromised after a one-night stand leaves her stranded in downtown L.A. without a phone, car, ID or money - and only 8 hours to make it to the most important job interview of her life.

Nice effects though.


Captivating movie !


If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.

It's simply great fun, a winsome film and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.


6/22/18. Banks is such a great versatile actress and this movie shows you how she does it. Almost effortlessly, she goes from glamorous TV anchor to a woman mistaken for one of ill-repute. She survives the worst LA neighborhoods after partying and drinking too much the night before. Along the way she meets a variety of urban dwellers and escapes with her virtue intact, although a major fashion mess. It was a fun movie to watch. I liked the scene where she was in a spa.


I love this movie and I love E. Banks -- watching the DVD again and again. What's wrong with the rest of you people? This is not a dumb movie. Most of the celebrated box office success comedies are dumb movies, IMHO, but not this one (which of course was a box office failure). Yes, the movie is basically about watching Ms. Banks walk around, but what a device. A+ for the idea.This amuses me like nothing since AFTER HOURS (1985, 7.7) and REPO MAN (1984, 6.9), and touches my heart in places (Pookie) like TANK GIRL (1995, 5.2 cult classic). Oh yeah, people hated those movies at the time, too. OK, it lacks the edge of those movies, but except for the massage scene, it's a lot easier on the eyes.BTW, if that yellow dress ever comes up for Hollywood prop auction, I'm bidding on it, and if I win it, they can sell it for 100:1 ROI when I die.


This is your typical oh-no-I'm-stuck-in-a-quandary-and-it's-gonna-last- the-whole-movie shtick. This has been done hundreds of times before, and if your'e looking for the original master, go back to the Three Stooges. It was much more fresh when they did it, and they were better at it. That being said, the characters are flat, there's little development, and all we have are semi-humorous situations based in race and gender clichés. Yes, she's a crack whore everyone. I knew when this came out, I wasn't interested, and that there was no way I'd pay good money for it. Even watching free I felt ripped off. No need to watch this movie. There are dozens of things I can think of that would end in time much better spent. Luke warm at best.


I left the film, Walk of Shame, with no doubt that Elizabeth Banks, with the right material, could perhaps tickle the funny bone. She seems like a potentially gifted comedienne. However, this film does her a disservice because it just isn't funny. She wakes up in the apartment of a handsome and nice guy played by James Marsden but instead of waiting for him to return, this potential anchor for a news station goes out in a rough part of a city running afoul of numerous obstacles (like trying to find her car which has been impounded, snatching a kid's bike to get around, hopping on a bus without a buck fifty in change which has her being mace sprayed by the driver, being cursed by some jagoff she meets in a park, meeting a Jewish man with focus issues near a synagogue, and trying to evade two police officers after her). This simply isn't smart or witty enough to rescue poor Banks from the doldrums although everybody in this cast works their ass off willing to try. If there is a consolation, Banks looks damn good in that tight, yellow dress, although the mean-spirited script has her called a hooker hoodlum, with nearly all those she encounters offering nothing but ridicule and hardship. Banks just deserves better than this film which accosts her with one unfunny bit and gag after another. Attractive cast gives it their best shot which is altogether tragic that the dialogue doesn't help them any.
