Trivia

In one scene, Ray Liotta's character, Dean, is working in his office when an employee enters to tell him they have three new Toyota Camrys and that the parts from them will profit the business at least $100,000. In 2001 - the year of the movie's release - the Toyota Camry's most expensive trim cost $26,225. Three of them would total only $78,675, meaning the profit from selling the parts would not be close to $100,000. See more »

Extraordinary Love Comedy
14 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Funny how easily guys can be fooled by women, but this movie is all about that. Tragically some women can't be trusted, especially when they're working on man's weakness, by using temptation.

The movie takes maximum advantage of all the funny things that can happen when a mother and daughter team of marriage con goes out to dig the gold out of rich men. Unfortunately, the daughter falls for incorruptible decent bar owner. But the plan is still to con the guy into being seduced by the mother (who's pretending to be the cousin of her own daughter) on the night of the wedding of the daughter to the bar owner.

The movie is a comedy but hits close to home about how men can be conned by having wool put over their eyes in the name of love, and by some forceful means. That's what makes this movie an extra delight to watch.

The movie is actually a love comedy with a twist, and lives up to both the comedy, and romance aspect of the story as well.

Jennifer Hewitt and Sigourney Weaver puts on great performance as well as the supporting casts.

Great movie that I wish they made more of its kind.
