Storyline

Mike, Danny, and Rick are grown men who share a house in Chicago. They take on a fourth house mate, John, who is Mike's estranged first cousin. John's welcome to the house is crowned by his introduction to a game of perpetual pranks called "Watch it!" When not playing pranks on each other, the three men spend their time womanizing, avoiding commitment, treating women badly, and talking about women in the coarsest terms. John, somewhat of a drifter with a fear of commitment, is nonetheless a man apart from this trio of feckless cowards. He takes a shine to Anne, recently jilted by his cousin Mike. Meanwhile, Rick is doing his best to ruin a promising relationship with the fetching and sincere Ellen. How Annie, Ellen, Rick, Mike, and John sort out (or fail to sort out) their social lives becomes the focus of the movie. Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

Rick Miller: Ya know something, Big Time... you're letting this girl thing get way out of hand. I mean, not for nothing. But you, my friend, are the one who's sitting in the driver's seat.
John: I don't follow.
Rick Miller: Well, of course you don't, but that's why I'm here. Allow me, if you will, to familiarize you with the Rick Miller theory on women. Now, if you have to go to the bathroom, or anything, you should go now. Okay, look... the only woman a guy like you should have anything to do with is the one who has already ...

John C. McGinley's speech makes the movie
8 April 2002 | by (Walworth, WI) – See all my reviews

The Rick Miller Theory of Dating speech (mentioned in another user's comment) should be seen by just about everybody. The humor and realism of that segment is priceless. And McGinley's delivery of it was right on. Curse of the nice guy. I wish the pranks would have continued throughout the movie to add some more 'juice' to it, though.
