First, before I get into the review itself, let's get this out of the way. For all those guys who debated seeing this movie because it looks like a chick film, but you really like Jennifer Love Hewitt.....GO SEE IT! Trust me, she is hot in this film. Not just hot, but smoking hot. I mean hot enough for you to cry in pain at how unfair life is hot. So hot she might as well have wore a nun costume in "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" because she was never as hot as this. There is no excuse for you not to see this, as well as BUY it (Not rent) on DVD or VHS when it comes out. Oh, and if you like Sigourney Weaver, the same goes for you. But I can only speak for Love fans.
As far as the film, I liked it. I thought the comedic chemistry between the characters was on target, and while it wasn't roll on the floor funny, there were some pretty amusing bits. A lot of risque humor of course, and I was surprised this got a PG-13 rating. You might want to keep the kids home for this one. The Gene Hackman character was funny, especially regarding his obsession to smoking. I thought Weaver and Hewitt had good byplay as a mother/daughter who just tolerate one another. The plot is easy to figure out as to where it's going, but it's funny along the way and that's what matters. And Jason Lee was really good as the average guy who has to put up with the coniving ways of the Hewitt character. Overall, a good way to spend a couple hours at the movies.
By the way.......did I say how hot Jennifer Love Hewitt was?.......
