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 »

I Disagree w/ the Above Comment
19 October 2005 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

This movie was not terrible! Obviously, if you're looking to watch something deep and profound, don't rent this movie. This is just a lighthearted, and yes, over-the-top spoof of sorts. I love it. I thought it was hilarious. Cameron Diaz and Applegate made a wonderful team, though I think they could have gotten someone then Selma Blair to play the third girl, Blair always has that sour-puss look on her face like she just sucked a lemon, but overall the result was funny. I laughed out loud throughout the entire film and have turned at least ten people on to it, and they thought it was funny and cute too. Not a brainy film by any means, but it wasn't trying to be.
