By day, Nola Devlin (Poppy Montgomery) is an unassuming, frumpy magazine editor who is overlooked and teased by her coworkers. When the sun sets, though, and she is behind the glow and anonymity of her computer screen, she becomes the famous and “reclusive” advice columnist Belinda Apple. Nola’s friends, tired of being overworked and overweight, band together to create the “Cinderella Pact,” vowing to lose pounds by following the advice of their “fairy godmother,” Apple. When her secret identity is threatened, Nola is forced to take her own alter ego’s advice. But, as the group of friends drops dress sizes, their real issues are exposed, and better-than-expected life changes begin to blossom.

It really made me indignant at the creatively stagnant cultural climate we're currently stuck in; Mr. Harvey's type of raw creativity could never catch fire today.

However, Winterbottom is very successful at doing just that and in the end the film feels like the ultimate faithful and frantic art house experience that the fans could have hoped for. Steve Coogan's performance as the snob and idealistic visionary Tony Wilson is praiseworthy.
