This is one of those films which I pass all the time at my local vid shop. I hear of it, it has gone done generally good with critics but it never really screams at me to rent it. Anyway I did rent as part of a special offer discount voucher I had. I must say it was actually pretty good. The film is completely ludicrous in plot but it is a comedy. Basically it is about the effect Liv Tyler has on three men in particular played by Matt Dillon, Paul Reiser and John Goodman. I will say though, that I can definately believe the things these guys do for Livs character because she is so gorgeuous, I freely admit I'd do whatever the hell she wanted me to do. I am a big Liv Tyler fan after Lord of the Rings becuase she is so attrcative and depsite what critics say she actually can act. I know perhaps films like Armeggeddon are not the best to judge critical response because everyone in that film got criticised for their performances. Anyway, while this film is entertaining it has now real memorable moments of comedy that don't involve Liv half naked and hosing herself or something. I thought that the performances in particular Dillon, Goodman and Michael Douglas were all great and also a narrow show stealer, from the other men, Paul Reiser is hilarious you can't help but laugh out loud as he is running around in bondage gear, oh wait that could go down as a memorable moment. Liv is the overall show stopper because she lights up the screen whenever she's on it.
