When Max pretends to be 'Olga', judging by her accent and name, she is supposed to be Russian; at one point she addresses Tensey as 'Babooshka' in an affectionate tone. When in fact 'Babooshka' is Russian for Grandmother. However, a plausible excuse for this would be that Max was unaware of its actual meaning. See more »
The film was billed as a romantic comedy, but I didn't see it that way. It's certainly a comedy (with a little romance) but this is far closer to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels than Pretty Woman.
Anyway, when i watched it i found the film to be one of the best comedies i've seen for years. Its about a sexy mother and daughter pairing of Sigourney Weaver and Jennifer Love-Hewitt who basically marry men for their money; every character seems to be double crossing every other character, and it makes for terrific viewing.
Each member of the cast puts in a top performance, the characters are all intelligently written and the story is very strong and interesting.
I have to recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good laugh, this is definitely not just a another chick flick, it is a brilliantly funny movie. 8/10
