Goofs

In the kitchen, when Sylvia removes the cake from the pan, it breaks into multiple pieces. She arranges it haphazardly on the plate and begins to ice it while still standing at the kitchen counter. When she brings the plate and icing into the living room the cake has been arranged better and there is no icing on it. See more »

Quotes

Sylvia: I'd like a man who sweeps a girl off her feet.
Jack Holden: Kinda like I swept you off your feet.
Sylvia: Knocked me off my feet is more like it.

No. Not the best, though certainly under rated
7 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Geez, it looks like someone's really easily impressed. While given that this movie certainly deserves a higher rating than 4.5 (probably about a 6) it is certainly nowhere near being the best film ever.

Danson, Selleck and Guttenberg are great together and the supporting cast is good too. There is one classic moment (because it is so accurate) of a farmer giving the three men directions on how to get to a church as he describes in painstaking detail the road that they should avoid taking. As with most comedies some of the jokes just don't work at all. This doesn't make it a poor comedy, this just stops it from being a above average one.

This film is a solid piece of feel good cinema with great casting (though not neccessarily a great cast) and I can only assume people rate films on a different scale to me.
