Goofs

On their way home from a nightclub towards the end of the movie, there is a close-up of the three girls, shoulder to shoulder in the back seat of a taxi, presumably so they all fit into the shot. Next is a wide exterior shot of the taxi and the girls are spread out across the back seat, with plenty of space between them. See more »

Great movie with unique female characters
16 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How is this not hilarious? There are always movies that seem to make it big, like Wedding Crashers, Meet the Parents, and American Pie 1,2, and 3, Van Wilder, when the main characters are stereotypical male characters, but when it is women, expectations change and so do the double standards, which is disappointing in this day in age. The women in this movie are way funnier and do more interesting activities and funnies than the same old good old boys routine stuff. Some very unpredictable predicaments make this laugh out loud! I bought this movie in 2003 and have watched it with all my circles of friends and everyone from 19 to 64 have laughed out loud during this movie, which other movies are lucky if it barely happens once.

I love the unrated version, the song and dance, and her sexy dream with Peter and when he "had all the calories taken out for you."
